jQuery Plugin To Generate Animated Dynamic Gauges - dynameter

Dynameter is a tiny jQuery plugin used to generate & animate semicircular gauges/meters with support for real-time value updates. jQuery UI is required to generate a draggable handle to update the corresponding gauges/meters.

Basic Usage:

1. Include the needed jQuery & jQuery UI in your document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.11.2/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css"> 

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.11.2/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

2. Include the jQuery dynameter plugin in the document. Make sure to load the jquery.dynameter.js after jQuery library.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/jquery.dynameter.css">
<script src="js/jquery.dynameter.js"></script>

3. Create an empty element that will serve as a gauge container.

<div id="fuel-gauge"></div>

4. Create an empty element for the jQuery UI slider widget to update the gauge created in the previous steps.

<div id="fuel-gauge-control"></div>

5. Initialize the gauge and slider control.

var $myFuelGauge;

$( function () {
  $myFuelGauge = $("div#fuel-gauge").dynameter({
    width: 200,
    label: 'fuel',
    value: 7.5,
    min: 0.0,
    max: 15.0,
    unit: 'gal',
    regions: { // Value-keys and color-refs
      0: 'error',
      .5: 'warn',
      1.5: 'normal'

  // jQuery UI slider widget
    min: 0.0,
    max: 15.0,
    value: 7.5,
    step: .1,
    slide: function (evt, ui) {
