jCounter (a jQuery countdown plugin) – first release

Filed in Dev talk 4 comments

After doing a basic tutorial on creating a jQuery countdown plugin, I’ve been getting many requests regarding its functionality, so I’ve decided to rewrite it and make a release of a more stable version with more control.

Here are a few new things:

  • server-side timezone support to ensure accurate date-based countdowns
  • more control with native methods (stop, start, reset, pause)
  • it creates not only countdowns, but also countups based on custom values
  • it can run multiple independent instances etc.

Right now it’s in BETA, as I’m still improving it here and there.

You could help a lot by checking it out and by sending me both positive and negative feedback to catalin (at) devingredients (dot) com

This is an awesome light-weight plugin! I’m going to be using this in one of my theme templates and I’ll let you know when I’ve completed it. Really excited for future releases. I’ll be sure to post about it.
