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
