Released jQuery Upvote plugin

Published my first ever jQuery plugin just now: jQuery Upvote

The plugin simply generates a voting widget like the one used on Stack Exchange sites:

  • You can either upvote or downvote, not both at the same time
  • You can cancel an upvote or downvote by clicking again
  • The count is update accordingly
  • You can star (= favorite) and unstar
  • A callback method is fired on any update (upvote, downvote, star, and their reverse)

See it in action:


I’ve been needing this BADLY to add voting features on Hopefully that’s coming soon too 😉

    Seems like the link to is broken.
    Might be a problem with gh-pages.

      Ouch, so I broke it… It’s more or less back now, except some styling issues that got broken with the upgrade of bootstrap upstream. Thanks for pointing out!
