Slide a div offscreen using jQuery

This is a bit of a challenge. Here's what I'm looking for:

  1. 3 divs on screen
  2. Div 1 resides in the middle of the page (centered)
  3. Div 2 resides just off the screen on the far left
  4. Div 3 resides just off the screen on the far right
  5. OnClick, Div 1 slides to the position Div 2 was (to the left), Div 2 slides off the screen entirely, Div 3 slides to where Div 3 was (middle, centered). A new div arrives on the right.

I've tried using jQuery animation and AddClass. jQuery doesn't like sliding a div offscreen.

Any thoughts?

For an example of what I'm describing, visit Groupon.com. I thought it was a cool idea, and have given myself the challenge of recreating it. So far, no dice.

Something like this?

This is the basic functionality. It doesn't scale to more divs, etc, but that should get you started.

The key is to wrap your elements in a container and make the overflow hidden.

Update:

Here's a slightly better version that handles any number of divs (greater than 1):

Simplified further:

Code snippet:

$('.box').click(function() {

    $(this).animate({
        left: '-50%'
    }, 500, function() {
        $(this).css('left', '150%');
        $(this).appendTo('#container');
    });

    $(this).next().animate({
        left: '50%'
    }, 500);
});
body {
    padding: 0px;    
}

#container {
    position: absolute;
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 0px;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    overflow: hidden;  
}

.box {
    position: absolute;
    width: 50%;
    height: 300px;
    line-height: 300px;
    font-size: 50px;
    text-align: center;
    border: 2px solid black;
    left: 150%;
    top: 100px;
    margin-left: -25%;
}

#box1 {
    background-color: green;
    left: 50%;
}

#box2 {
    background-color: yellow;
}

#box3 {
    background-color: red;
}

#box4 {
    background-color: orange;
}

#box5 {
    background-color: blue;
}
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<div id="container">
    
    <div id="box1" class="box">Div #1</div>
    <div id="box2" class="box">Div #2</div>
    <div id="box3" class="box">Div #3</div>
    <div id="box4" class="box">Div #4</div>
    <div id="box5" class="box">Div #5</div>
    
</div>

Maybe I misinterpreted. I though you wanted three divs in a row, and only the ones on the end sliding and whatnot.

(I know you're using jQuery for this, but it pissed me off as I was trying to force it to work. You'd have to adapt this for your purposes.)


Extending Jeff B answer, i've included Hammer.js and made a circular list.

$(function() {
$("#esq").click(function() {
    console.log("Esquerda !");
    var obj = $(".ativo");
    $(obj).animate({
        left: '-50%'
    }, 500, function() {
        $(this).css('left', '+150%');
        $(this).appendTo('#container');
    });
    $(obj).next().animate({
        left: '+50%'
    }, 500, function() {
        $(this).addClass('ativo');
        $(obj).removeClass('ativo');
    });
});

$("#dir").click(function() {
    console.log("Direita !");
    var obj = $(".ativo");
    var prox = $(obj).siblings(":last");
    $(obj).animate({
        left: '+150%'
    }, 500, function() {
        $(prox).prependTo('#container');
    });
    $(prox).css('left', '-50%');
    $(prox).animate({
        left: '+50%'
    }, 500, function() {
        $(this).addClass('ativo');
        $(obj).removeClass('ativo');
    });
});

var hammertime = new Hammer(document.getElementById("container"));
hammertime.get('swipe').set({direction: Hammer.DIRECTION_HORIZONTAL});
hammertime.on('swipeleft', function() {
    $("#esq").trigger("click");
});
hammertime.on('swiperight', function() {
    $("#dir").trigger("click");
});

});

And... not a year too late. If you want it to start on the first div, your css needs to look like this.


    #box1 { background-color:#333; }
    #box2 { background-color:#333; left: -50%; }
    #box3 { background-color:#333; left: 150%; }
    #box4 { background-color:#333; left: 150%; }
    #box5 { background-color:#333; left: 150%; }
