Responsive Animated Progress Bar With jQuery And CSS3 - Barfiller.js

Barfiller.js is a jQuery plugin which uses CSS3 transitions to fill horizontal bars with percentage values you specify. It will auto re-animate on window resize to fit any screen sizes. Also can be used as a horizontal bar chart.

How to use it:

1. First you need to load both jQuery library and the Barfiller.js script in your webpage.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.barfiller.js"></script>

2. Create the html for the progress bar and specify the percentage to present using data-percentage attribute.

<div id="bar1" class="barfiller">
  <div class="tipWrap">
  <span class="tip"></span>
  <span class="fill" data-percentage="50"></span>

3. Add the following CSS styles to the webpage.

.barfiller {
  width: 100%;
  height: 12px;
  background: #fcfcfc;
  border: 1px solid #ccc;
  position: relative;
  margin-bottom: 20px;
  box-shadow: inset 1px 4px 9px -6px rgba(0,0,0,.5);
  -moz-box-shadow: inset 1px 4px 9px -6px rgba(0,0,0,.5);

.barfiller .fill {
  display: block;
  position: relative;
  width: 0px;
  height: 100%;
  background: #333;
  z-index: 1;

.barfiller .tipWrap { display: none; }

.barfiller .tip {
  margin-top: -30px;
  padding: 2px 4px;
  font-size: 11px;
  color: #fff;
  left: 0px;
  position: absolute;
  z-index: 2;
  background: #333;

.barfiller .tip:after {
  border: solid;
  border-color: rgba(0,0,0,.8) transparent;
  border-width: 6px 6px 0 6px;
  content: "";
  display: block;
  position: absolute;
  left: 9px;
  top: 100%;
  z-index: 9
