Nautilus is a jQuery plug-in based on Google's Doodle honoring Jules Verne (it was released on February 8, 2011). The letters of Google looked like hatches that allowed to see "under the sea", and on the side there was a small controller to move the Nautilus.

Nautilus takes all the images within a DIV tag (it could be any other tag though) and, depending on the class and settings, generates an interactive animation fully customizable that allows to see the moving background through the hatches.


The Nautilus plug-in is highly customizable (indeed, it is highly recommended to change the settings in order to obtain a better result). You can provide different parameters such as:

  • - Size and color
  • - Speed of the animation
  • - Controllers and type
  • - Additional waving and dynamic animations
  • - And many more


Although it is fully functional and working, it is far from finished yet (I wished it looked exactly like the Google Doodle) There are still a lot of things to develop, so if you decide to use it, I will really appreciate if you send me a message with any bug or thing that you notice.
