I have a slider of text but when the slider is at the end he creates a little jump over the text and then starts again as normal.

I have created the slide like this:

	animateSlider : () =>
		elWidth         = @textM.find('.js-marquee:first').width()
		marqueeWrapper 	= @textM.find('.js-marquee-wrapper')
		reverRepeat	= =>
		reverComplt  = =>
		animObj			= {
		if not @direction
			@timeLine = TweenMax.to('.js-marquee-wrapper', @speedSlide, animObj)
			@timeLine = TweenMax.from('.js-marquee-wrapper', @speedSlide, animObj) 

elWidth is the width of the div that will slide. ( I have cloned this div into a wrapper to get the effect of circular ) .

The div js-marquee-wrapper contain 2 divs js-marquee that have been cloned.

I am using CoffeScript.

Unfortunately I'm not a CoffeeScript guy - could you create a simple codepen that demonstrates the issue and use pure JavaScript? I didn't quite understand what the problem was that you were describing. Were you saying that it's currently jumping to a new value instead of smoothly transitioning there?

Sorry, I have reproduced the code in JavaScript 

See the Pen zhmAH by anon (@anon) on CodePen


You will see that there is a little bug, but is not the same like on my application.

The jump is occurring because your 2 .js-marquee elements are not identical widths.


Your content that is nicely indented and on multiple lines does not render the same as the single line clone. The spaces around the spans etc that indent the content still count as white space, so in the top one you have:


        <span class="news-title">Starwood Upgraded to Strong Buy</span>
····</a><span>  -  </span>
····<a href="etc


which in HTML becomes:


Starwood Upgraded to Strong Buy···-···Why You Should Ignore...


The nicely indented code actually has three spaces either side of the dash, while the clone only has 2.


I've fixed this in your codepen and you can see the difference

Thank you, normaly the content is dynamic generated. (The spaces between links on separator can be changed) .


What about the way that I make the slider ? Is it a good way ? :)
