<script src="//"></script>

<link rel="stylesheet" href="jquery-jesse.css">

3. Create a list of sortable items as follow:

<ul class="jq-jesse" id="list">
  <li class="jq-jesse__item">0</li>
  <li class="jq-jesse__item">1</li>
  <li class="jq-jesse__item">2</li>
  <li class="jq-jesse__item">3</li>

4. Enable the plugin on this Html list.


5. Available options with default values.


  // jquery Selector for sortable items
  selector:    'li',

  // CSS class to be added to a dragged element
  dragClass:   '_isDragged',

  // placeholder item
  placeholder: '<li class="jq-jesse__placeholder"></li>',

  // executed after the item change position.
  onChangePosition: function(position, prevPosition, item) {},
  // executed when the item has dropped
