Timeglider – Impressive jQuery Plugin For Data-Driven Timelines
Timeglider is a jQuery plugin for displaying any number of events in a highly-flexible timeline.
Its interface has support for zooming in/out (mouse wheel can be used too) and panning where you can quickly navigate through the time and find events.
Events are clickable and can display a detailed view of them inside a modal box.
JSON is used as the data source for the items in the timeline. Within the data source, it is possible to attach items to categories for filtering them (filtering can also be done keyword-based).
There are also many other features like "the ability to use images in the timeline", "attaching icons to events, "setting an importance for each item" and more.
