so for a site I'm working on. the mobile will essentially be a basic slider while the desktop has a different slide functionality. 


Currently I have the desktop slider complete and trying to figure out the best way to go about this. 


These are the two options I thought of

  1. Clone the html with jquery clone and create a new mobile timeline version. show hide with css.
  2. Create and destroy timelines on the same html based on browser size.


Which is the better option or is there a better option out there?

Hi kkyang  :)


We've had a few good discussions about responsive animations. Some involve calculating new positions while others kill() the timeline completely. I think these threads could help you decide what to do:






Hopefully those get you started in the right direction.


Happy tweening.
