Are there (or can someone recommend) any minimalistic JavaScript based libraries for sprite(s) manipulation? Preferably DOM oriented.

Minimalist JavaScript developers don't use libraries. – aaaaaaaaaaaa Aug 10 '11 at 15:58

Any library you use will have slack, to make something minimalistic is to strip it to only the necessary features. Why not just write a simple sprite class? – Adrian Seeley Aug 11 '11 at 21:59

EaselJS does sprite animation with HTML Canvas if that is something you could use. It's not really minimalistic, but does a really good job of handling sprite sheets.

The source is split across multiple files, so with a bit of work you could probably pull apart just the bits to do sprite animation (BitmapSequence).
