CSSTransformComponent.toMatrix()

The toMatrix() method of the CSSTransformComponent interface returns a DOMMatrix object.

All transform functions can be represented mathematically as a 4x4 transformation matrix. This is explained in detail in Understanding the CSS Transforms matrix.

The is2D property affects what transform, and therefore type of matrix that will be returned. CSS 2D and 3D transforms are different for legacy reasons. A brief explanation of 2D vs. 3D transforms can be found in Using CSS transforms.
