A while back I read an article explaining how to create a smooth scroll to top with CSS transitions (via segdeha.com) and I filed that in the could be useful drawer.
Yesterday I was getting frustrated with the flashing that appeared on an iOS device when using the
$.scrollTo function, and the flakiness that came along with using the
$.scrollTo — I never liked how when the function is scrolling the page for you, it’s very easy to start fighting with it, if you changed your mind. Don’t get started on the amount of trouble you’re asking for if you queue up too many
$.scrollTo’s. And then it hit me; that thing in that drawer could be useful.
slideTo is very raw; I only wrote it yesterday (where I mean, I adapted this code yesterday to do something else.)
It requires jQuery and it will take either an element or an integer as it’s parameter.
As I said, this is all very new, and I only penned this (used liberally here, credit must go to Mahieddine Abdelkader for the original idea) yesterday. It may introduce new issues, but I haven’t discovered them yet in the limited testing I have done.
