About 3 weeks back I saw a progress bar tracking the progression through reading articles on a site that, for the life of me, I can’t find right now. I looked around and wasn’t able to (quickly) find any jQuery plugins that did that out of the box in a way that I was happy with, so I wrote my own.

Introducing progressify

progressify is a small jQuery plugin that provides a visual representation of your progress through an article or page. It can be instantiated on the whole page, or just a single element inside.

It accepts several options, is very extendable for just about any purpose, and can be styled to your hearts content with custom classes, or by targeting the created classes directly.

Check it out on Github¬†and give it a go. I’d be interested to hear any thoughts or improvements!
