An extremely simple jQuery select replacement plugin that converts the native select dropdown into an easy to style HTML list while preserving the native select methods.

How to use it:

1. Include the stylesheet justselect.min.css in the head section that offers basic styles & animations for the custom select element.

<link href="css/justselect.css" rel="stylesheet" />

2. Include both jQuery JavaScript library and the JavaScript file justselect.min.js at the bottom of the page.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/js/justselect.min.js"></script>

3. Just add the CSS class justselect to your select box and the plugin will do the rest.

<select class="justselect">
  <option selected="selected" value="jquery">JavaScript</option>
  <option value="css">CSS3</option>
  <option value="html">HTML5</option>
</select>

4. The generated HTML list should be like these:

<div class="justselect-wrapper">
  <select class="justselect">
    <option selected="selected" value="jquery">JavaScript</option>
    <option value="css">CSS3</option>
    <option value="html">HTML5</option>
  </select>
  <div class="justselect-title">JavaScript</div>
    <ul class="justselect-list">
      <li class="selected">JavaScript</li>
      <li>CSS3</li>
      <li>HTML5</li>
   </ul>
</div>

5. Override the default CSS rules to create your own styles and animations.

.justselect-wrapper {
  /* your styles here */
}

.justselect-title {
  /* your styles here */
}

.justselect-list {
  /* your styles here */
}

.justselect-list li {
  /* your styles here */
}

.justselect-list li.selected {
  /* your styles here */
}
