jQuery plugin To Visualize Numeric Data - Bar Indicator

Bar Indicator is a jQuery plugin that enables you to visualize numeric data as percentage or absolute numbers into fully customizable bars, similar to the progress indicator.

Basic usage:

1. Load the jQuery Bar Indicator's stylesheet in the head, and the jquery-barIndicator.js script at the bottom of the webpage.

<link href="barIndicator/css/bi-style.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>  
<script src="barIndicator/jquery-barIndicator.js"></script>

2. Load the jQuery easing plugin for additional easing methods.

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

3. Wrap your numeric data into inline elements as follow.

<span id="demo">15</span>  
<span id="demo">35</span>
<span id="demo">45</span>
<span id="demo">80</span>
<span id="demo">95</span>

4. Initialize the plugin to draw bar indicators on your web page.
