SwinxyTouch - jQuery Pointers & Gestures Library

SwinxyTouch is an jQuery multi-touch pointer and gesture library designed with compatibility, performance, ease of use and extensibility in mind.

At its core SwinxyTouch normalises touch and mouse events and exposes them as sxy-focus, sxy-blur, sxy-hover, sxy-down, sxy-up, sxy-move. These events are then utilised to create all the most common gestures and some extra helpers to aid in varying situations.

Whats sets SwinxyTouch apart?

  • Modular design lets you easily package just what you need for a tiny file size and excellent performance.
  • Take advantage of the modular design and clear code to easilly create your very own gestures and helpers.
  • Mouse and Touch events are hooked on an as needed basis, eg. if you only use sxy-tap then the resource intensive touchmove and mousemove events are never used greatly improving performance.
  • Events are automatically unbound, eg. if you stop listening on ‘sxy-drag’ any resources and hooks which can be released will be to ensure performance does not degrade over time.
  • No messing or overwriting of the global space with registered events and public interfaces namedspace’d under ‘sxy’ to prevent conflicts with 3rdparty scripts and future browser changes.


  • Works in all major browsers including IE6
  • Tested in mobile browsers on multiple mobile devices to ensure performance.
