I have always wanted to create a jQuery plugin, so I did a bit of research and it is very simple to create one. To demonstrate I created one called FreedomTimer, which is just a simple countdown plugin made to be used by anyone wanting countdown functionality on their site. The code for this plugin can be found on GitHub. Please feel free to fork or contribute.
All I needed to create this plugin, I got from these resource’s:
How to create a basic plugin - This covers the basics and the minimum needed to create a plugin.
Advanced Plugin Concepts – This covers some very need tips on improving your plugin and how to make it more usable.
That’s how simple it is. Now go ahead and create!!
