Count Everest Countdown | Responsive jQuery Plugin

Get your own easily customizable countdown script without any further JS knowledge! Count Everest is quickly integrated into your own markup. It’s extendable with callback functions, provides many options (e.g.: left-hand zeros), and comes with an easy-to-follow documentation. Localize it within seconds. Use your own font. And enjoy it even in Internet Explorer. We can’t wait to see what you create with it.
The layout above is using the HTML5 canvas element, which is NOT compatible with older Internet Explorers like 6, 7 and 8.
Please refer to our Demonstration Page to see all examples in action.
Lightning Fast Integration
Set up the plugin within minutes. Choose your favourite layout, set your target date for the countdown and upload all necessary files. It’s really that easy.
No Javascript Knowledge Required
You don’t need any further JavaScript knowledge to use our countdown plugin. Some ready to use special examples you will find in our documentation.
Easily Extendable and Customizable
With a little bit more technical understanding of HTML/CSS and/or JavaScript you can easily extend and customize the plugin.
Responsive Example Layouts
We included 10 responsive layouts that you can use on your website.
Well Documented
We have a powerful and detailed documentation online and also packaged in the plugin zip folder.
Easily Define the Time Units for your Countdown
You just want to display the remaining hours of your target date? No problem! You can easily handle this within your HTML markup. You can show days, hours, minutes, seconds, deciseconds and milliseconds.
Translate Labels in your Language
You can define your own wording for every time unit label.
Left-Hand Zeros
Use this option to force left-hand zeros. Every value will have two digits unless there are more digits necessary to display the remaining time (e.g. days and milliseconds).
Server Time
You can define your own current date and time (e.g. the server time via PHP). Otherwise the plugin uses the current time of the browser or operating system.
Time Zones
Define the offset from coordinated universal time (UTC) for the location of your target date to sync the countdown in the browsers of the users around the world.
Callback Functions
The plugin provides the following callback functions:
onInit, beforeCalculation, afterCalculation, onChange and onComplete
API Methods
After initialization you can control the countdown with API methods:
pause, resume, destroy, getOption and setOption.
Performance Optimized
The code of our plugin is as little as possible, so the minified JavaScript file is less than 10kb.
