How to Make Animated Counter Using jQuery

How to Make Animated Counter Using jQuery

In this tutorial I will show you how to implement a custom animated counter using just html css and jquery, no plugin. To achieve this functionality we will have to get the jquery library and add it to the website, and create 3 new files. index.html, style.css and main.js

Animated Counter Using jQuery steps:

First of all we will have to create the HTML structure which will be used to create the counter and then we will animate it using jquery. Just copy paste the following HTML structure in your index.html file.

<div id="counter">
    <div class="counter-value" data-count="300">0</div>
    <div class="counter-value" data-count="400">100</div>
    <div class="counter-value" data-count="1500">200</div>

As you can see we added the desired value in the data-count attribute. Next in jquery we will check when you scroll down until you reach the section. If the section is in viewport we will have to animate the numbers to increase to the value which is in the data-count attribute. To do that we will add the following code in main.js file, we just created.

var a = 0;
$(window).scroll(function() {

  var oTop = $('#counter').offset().top - window.innerHeight;
  if (a == 0 && $(window).scrollTop() > oTop) {
    $('.counter-value').each(function() {
      var $this = $(this),
        countTo = $this.attr('data-count');
        countNum: $this.text()
          countNum: countTo


          duration: 2000,
          easing: 'swing',
          step: function() {
          complete: function() {

    a = 1;


That's all the code we need to do this functionality, test it and let me know if this worked for you. The next step is to customize the counter as you wish. To do that open your style.css file and start design your counter as you wish. To test better this script you should add margin-top to body at least 1000px because you will have to scroll in order to find out if the functionality is really working.
