myTimeline is a jQuery timeline plugin that loads data from a Javascript objects array or an JSON data file via ajax to display your years events as a simple responsive timeline on the web page.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery library and JQuery myTimeline plugin at the bottom of the web page.

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/mytimeline.jquery.min.js"></script>

2. Load the required timeline.css in the header for basic and themes styles.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/timeline.css">

3. Create a container element where you want to render a timeline.

<section class="my-timeline">

</section>

4. Create an array of years events the plugin will use.

var history = [ 
{
year: 2014,
"events": "Your events"
}, 
{
year: 2013,
events: [
"Your events",
"Your events" ]
},
{
year: 2012,
events: [
"Your events",
"Your events" ]
}
];

5. Call the plugin on the container elements you just created.

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
$( '.my-timeline' ).myTimeline( history );
});
</script>

// ajax: 'history.json'
// });

});
</script>
