noUiSlider is a lightweight jQuery range slider plugin. It offers a wide selection of options and settings, but it is (much!) less bloated than the jQueryUI slider. noUiSlider supports touch on a wide range of devices, including those running iOS, Android, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.


noUiSlider is lightweight plugin, developed to be a jQuery UI alternative. It features cross-browser support, a just-another-input-type style of getting and setting values, a wide range of options and support for a bunch of touch devices. It works wonders on Android phones, iPhone & iPad, Windows phone and touch-screen laptops and tablets. It works excellent on the desktop too; All modern browsers and IE7+ are supported. The end result? A lean, extendible and bloat-less plugin that'll just do its job. To add even more flexibility, noUiSlider is compatible with both jQuery and Zepto.js. Oh, and the licensing terms are simple: just do what you want.


An extensive documentation, including examples, options and configuration details, is available here: noUiSlider documentation.


Changelog for version 6.0.0:

Please note: noUiSlider 6 is a major revision, which means it isn't compatible with version 5. Your stylesheet will keep working, but the JavaScript API has changed, and your current implementation will no longer work.

  • Added optional non-linear ranges, including stepping.
  • Added new behaviour settings.
  • Added object-oriented serialization.
  • Change events to use jQuery's/Zepto's .on and .off.
  • Removed block event.

Unit Testing

Unit tests where added with noUiSlider 6. The event testing coverage isn't 100% yet, but coverage of the Link is extensive. More tests will be added eventually.

Compression and Error checking

CSS (CSSMinifier)
The stylesheet is trimmed to remove whitespace and comments to provide a min version.

JS (Google Closure Compiler)
The plugin is compressed using the Google Closure compiler. The source was adapted to facilitate the ADVANCED_OPTIMIZATIONS level.

Code (JsLint)
The plugin code is checked using JsLint. Any remaining errors and warnings are intentional.

Known issues

There are some minor issues remaining in noUiSlider. It is a priority to fix these issues, but they may be fixed by browser updates in the future.

  • Firefox and Safari on Windows will emulate mouse-events on touch screens, but prefer scrolling to dragging the slider.
