Progress bar is an important part of web design. There could be various reasons to use the progress bar but it is not as easy as it looks. You can either build it from scratch or use existing libraries to make this work easier. ProgressBar.js is an awesome library that lets you build responsive progress bars easily.
This is a free open source library and it supports all major browsers.
Progress bars are available in multiple shapes. This is the reason you must try it once. These are the shapes available to use as the progress bar.
- Single line
- Full circle
You can also design your own custom shape as the progress bar.
The library works on SVG and you can create your custom shape by using SVG markup. You can also animate the text and animate logo by using this library.
Use of this library is also easy. First, include the JS file in your HTML document and then use the following JS code.
var ProgressBar = require('progressbar.js')
var line = new ProgressBar.Line('#container');
The best thing is that the code for various shapes is available on JS fiddle. So, you can easily use this code as it is or use it to learn how to create custom shape. Check these examples here on ProgressBar.js homepage.
You can download the JS from GitHub page.
