Creating An Animated Speedometer with jQuery and CSS3

Creating An Animated Speedometer with jQuery and CSS3

A jQuery plugin helps you create an animated & highly customizable speedometer representing the number you type into an input field. Based on jQuery and CSS3 transitions & transforms. No image needed.

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery library together with speedometer.css and speedometer.js in the document.

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

2. Create an input field in the document.

<input id="demo">

3. Initialize the plugin. The plugin will automatically render a speedometer appending to the input you just created.


4. All the default settings.
