Drag & Drop List Sorting Plugin with jQuery - DDSort

DDSort is an easy, lightweight jQuery list sorting plugin which allows for an html list to be sorted with drag and drop. No any 3rd dependencies (e.g. jQuery UI) required. Mobile devices are supported as well.

How to use it:

1. Include jQuery JavaScript library and the jQuery DDSort plugin at the bottom of the html page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js"></script>
<script src="ddsort.js"></script>

2. Create a list of html content to be sorted via drag and drop.

<div id="wrapper">
      List Item 1
      List Item 2
      List Item 3

3. Enable the drag and drop list sorting functionality on the html list.

$( '#wrapper' ).DDSort({

  // element to be sorted
  target: 'li',

4. Available options and callbacks.

$( '#wrapper' ).DDSort({

  // element to be sorted
  target: 'li',

  // custom CSS styles for active element 
  floatStyle: {},

  // custom CSS styles for placeholder
  cloneStyle: {},

  // triggered on mouse down
  down: function(){},
