List Selection is a plugin for jQuery that helps you create file manager style rich selection for lists of elements. With this plugin, you can select / deselect multiple items in a list using your mouse and Ctrl / Shift keys.

Basic Usage:

1. Create the html for a html unordered list

<div class="list-group">
<ul data-list-selection="true">
<li data-uid="1">Item 1</li>
<li data-uid="2">Item 2</li>
<li data-uid="3">Item 3</li>
<li data-uid="4">Item 4</li>
<li data-uid="5">Item 5</li>
<li data-uid="6">Item 6</li>
<li data-uid="7">Item 7</li>
<li data-uid="8">Item 8</li>
<li data-uid="9">Item 9</li>
<li data-uid="10">Item 10</li>

2. Style the list

.list-group ul {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
.list-group li {
padding: 1em;
margin: 0.4em 0;
list-style: none;
border: 1px solid #eee;
.list-group li.selected {
color: #fff;
background-color: #3276b1;
border-color: #285e8e;
.list-group li.context-selected {
color: #fff;
background-color: #2AB782;
