jQuery Sorting Plugin with Native HTML5 Drag and Drop - draganddrop

Draganddrop is a small and easy jQuery plugin that allows you to rearrange a group of html elements with native HTML5 Drag and Drop feature.

Basic Usage:

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../src/draganddrop.js"></script>

2. Create a container which contains a group of html elements you want to sort.

<div id="columns">
<div class="column" draggable="true">
<div class="column" draggable="true">
<div class="column" draggable="true">

3. Apply the plugin on the container.

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
$('#columns > .column').draganddrop();
