Smart Timer And Counter is a jQuery plugin that can be used to add timers and clocks to the web page. Plugin is highly configurable and expandable through custom skins (visual component), modes (clock/timer logic) and languages (translate labels).

All styling is done using CSS (and Canvas for Circular skin), and all included styles are pure CSS with no images used. Controls are responsive, uses media queries to change counter sizes, and it can break into multiple lines on smaller screens.

Plugin is tested with current Android (with 4.4, 5.1 and 6.0) browsers, iPhone and iPad Safari and Chrome (with iOS 7, 8, 9), all modern desktop browsers (IE8 and IE9 will not show some of the styling). It requires JavaScript and jQuery support to work.

Clock and Counter Modes, Custom Layouts

Plugin can work as clock or as counter. If used as clock, you can show current date/time, or you can start from any date. Counter can countdown to any date, countdown any number of seconds or countup to any seconds limit. Plugin can display different combination of time and date elements, dividers and labels.

List of Modes Controls
  • Layout: combine order for ‘years, ‘months’, ‘days’, ‘hours’, ‘minutes’, ‘seconds’.
  • Dividers: several dividers available to split date / time elements.
  • Number of Digits: customize number of digits for each date / time element.
List of Counter Methods
  • Date: it must be in the future set using JavaScript Data object. Plugin will count to zero to reach set date.
  • Elapsed: it must be in the past set using JavaScript Data object. Plugin counts how much time has elapsed since past date.
  • Seconds: count to zero from specified number of seconds.
  • Target: count from zero to specified number of seconds.

Numbers based count up and down module

Plugin can also use number based format to count up or down with great flexibility. It allows for custom number of digits, decimal places, decimal and thousand separators, custom step (even randomized from set range). You can specify one character before and after the counter (like currency sign).

All included skins (with the exception of Circular) work with the numbers module. Some skins can have a bit different settings.
