Responsive & Touch-Friendly jQuery Range Slider Plugin

A small and fast jQuery plugin to create a customizable, responsive, touch-enabled range slider control from the native HTML5 range input.

Also can be used as a Polyfill for legacy browsers that don't support the HTML5 <input type="range"> element.

More features:

  • Horizontal & vertical layouts.
  • Supports negative numbers.
  • Auto resizes the range slider depending on the screen size.
  • Custom start/move/end events.
  • Supports native input attributes: step, min, max, etc.
