Simple Plain Bar Chart Plugin With jQuery - barCharts

barCharts is a very small jQuery plugin used to render an animated, horizontal or vertical bar chart / progress bar using plain HTML and CSS.

How to use it:

1. Include the jquery.barCharts.css in the head section to style the bar chart.

<link href="jquery.barCharts.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. The required html structure for the bar chart. You need to specify the numeric value using data-value attribute as this:

<div class="barChart">
  <div class="barChart__row" data-value="80">
    <span class="barChart__label">jQuery</span>
    <span class="barChart__value">17</span>
    <span class="barChart__bar"><span class="barChart__barFill"></span></span>
  <div class="barChart__row" data-value="60">
    <span class="barChart__label">Label 2</span>
    <span class="barChart__value">ReactJS</span>
    <span class="barChart__bar"><span class="barChart__barFill"></span></span>

3. Include jQuery library and the jquery.barCharts.js at the bottom of the webpage.

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

4. Optionally, you can load the jQuery easing plugin for more easing effects.

<script src="jquery.easing.min.js"></script>

5. Initialize the plugin to render a bar chart in the webpage.


6. Plugin's default customization options.


  // horizontal or vertical
  type: 'horizontal',

  // easing effect
  easing: 'swing',

  // animation speed
