The jQuery Mobile framework includes a set of six CSS-based transition effects that can be applied to any object or page change event, which apply the chosen transition when navigating to a new page and the reverse transition for the Back button. By default, the framework applies the right to left slide transition.
To set a custom transition effect, add the
data-transition attribute to the link. Possible values include:
<a href="index.html" data-transition="pop">I'll pop</a>
NOTE: The flip transition isn't rendered correctly on most versions of Android because it lacks 3D CSS transform capabilities. Unfortunately, instead of ignoring the flip, Android makes the page "cartwheel" away by rotating instead of flipping. We recommend using this transition sparingly until support improves.
In addition, you can also force a "backwards" transition by specifying
data-direction="reverse" on your link. Note: (this was formerly
data-back="true", which will remain supported until 1.0)
