Hi Tauseef,


The file you mention is a plugin that allows you use some GSAP methods on Raphael elements, or tween some specific raphael properties in native elements. You can look at it here:




Also if you don't mind about loosing support for older browsers, you could use SnapSVG (supports IE9+) and check Anthony's Snap pulgin:




I haven't played much with SVG libraries, the few things I've done in SVG have been fairly simple so there's haven't been a real need to use a library yet. Perhaps you can contact Anthony in that regard, He seems to have quite a handle in Snap.
