Easy List Selection With Checkboxes - jQuery simsCheckbox

simsCheckbox is a jQuery plugin for Bootstrap 4 and Bootstrap 3 that transforms the normal html unordered list into a selectable list view with checkboxes and custom check/uncheck markers.

How to use it:

1. Include the needed jQuery library, Bootstrap and Font Awesome on the webpage.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="font-awesome.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="bootstrap.min.css">
<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>

2. Create a normal html list and set the checked list item with the CSS class class="checked".

<ul class="demo">
    <li>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet</li>
    <li>Consectetur adipiscing elit</li>
    <li class="checked">Curabitur pulvinar egestas</li>
    <li>Dui eu porta</li>
    <li>Integer ut nunc enim</li>

3. Include the jQuery simsCheckbox plugin's JavaScript and CSS files on the webpage.

<link href="simsCheckbox.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="simsCheckbox.js"></script>

4. Initialize the plugin with default options. That's it.
