Dynamic Customizable Range Slider Plugin - jQuery rangeRover

rangeRover is a lightweight jQuery plugin to render a customizable range slider from dynamic data sets that feature categorized, range, and single selections.

How to use it:

1. Insert jQuery library together with the jQuery rangeRover plugin's JavaScript and style sheet into the html file.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="src/jquery.rangerover.css">
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="src/jquery.rangerover.js"></script>

2. Create a placeholder element to place the range slider.

<div id="range"></div>

3. Prepare your range values in the JavaScript as follows:

var myData = [
    name: 'Lenin',
    start: 1917,
    end: 1923,
    color: '#6d99ff',
    size: 20
    name: 'Stalin',
    start: 1923,
    end: 1953,
    color: '#ff0000',
    size: 30
    name: 'Khrushchev',
    start: 1953,
    end: 1964,
    color: '#ffcc66',
    size: 25
    name: 'Brezhnev',
    start: 1964,
    end: 1982,
    color: '#6bf442',
    size: 10
    name: 'Dissolution',
    start: 1982,
    end: 1991,
    color: '#cccccc',
    size: 15

4. Initialize the plugin to render a basic range slider inside the placeholder element you just created.

  data: myData

5. Customization options with default values.


  // true for range selection
  // false for single selection
  range: false,

  // or 'categorized'
  mode: 'plain',

  // auto calculates the size for each category 
  autocalculate: true,

  // slider color
  color: '#3498db',

  // step size
  step: 1,

  // shows labels
  vLabels: false

6. Perform an action when selected.


  onChange : function(val) {
    console.log('val', val);

7. Select a value manually.

$("#range").rangeRover('select', VALUE)
