    If you want to clone the repo always use the files under dist folder, they are optimized for production and development.

    Install via Bower

    bower install jquery.countdown

    Add a script to your html:

    <script src="/bower_components/jquery.countdown/dist/jquery.countdown.js"></script>

    Getting started

    <div id="getting-started"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
      $('#getting-started').countdown('2015/01/01', function(event) {
        $(this).html(event.strftime('%w weeks %d days %H:%M:%S'));


    Since version 2.0.0 we only support jQuery above 1.7 (including 2.x and 3.x). For legacy 1.6 support please use the version 1.0.2.


    Our documentation is powered by Jekyll (see gh-page branch) and hosted in GitHub Pages at http://hilios.github.io/jQuery.countdown/.


    There are few ways to get started, from the most simple example to advanced, we support many different countdown styles, see wich one fits your scenario, and if anyone doesn't it's a good starting point to customize your output.

    The Final Countdown uses Grunt and Bower with convenient methods for developing the plugin. It's how we compile our code and run tests. To get started install NodeJS, Bower, and then run some Grunt/Bower commands.

    bower install
    npm install
    grunt test  # Lint code and run test suite 
    grunt build # Generate the release files (dev, min and zip) 
    grunt       # Watch for updates than test and build 

    This plugin is tested with QUnit, under jQuery 1.7 up to 2.1, Bootstrap 3.0 and RequireJS.

    The functional tests made against:

    • Chrome >= 12
    • Safari >= 5
    • Firefox >= 5.0
    • IE 7/8/9
