jQuery - add CSS animation class and remove after animation

Ok, I know, the title says it all, but I would like to say some words to the scope of this tip. If you are using custom CSS animations or a library like animate.css ( you'll certainly face the following scenario - apply the animation class and remove it after the animation has occurred. The following snippet shows how to achieve this the cross browser way:

$("#animateme").bind("animationend webkitAnimationEnd oAnimationEnd MSAnimationEnd", function(){

I prefere this way much more, compatible zepto and no deprecated. And you should watch only once for the event:

$('#animateme').addClass('animate').one('webkitAnimationEnd...', function(){$(this).removeClass('animate')});
