“Brilliant work & Superb support.”
“I don’t normally give product reviews, however I feel that I’ve got to write something here. Firstly, this is a brilliant plugin, very neat and easy enough to use. The code’s written really well and the supporting documentation is very good. Secondly, I had an issue with something I was trying to make my particular countdown do. I contacted support and they went out of their way to help. Fair play guy’s. I highly recommend this plugin. Keep up the great work!”
“My countless hours of searching for a truly responsive jQuery timer came to a triumphant end when I found this plugin. This is the most flexible timer out there! Well done for an awesome plugin!”
“This is by far the most elegant designed countdown tool – and that does not only refer to the great looks, but also to the internal design of code, css and API. Since our pages are full of legacy code and 3rd-party-scripts, I had to cry my way through countless futile test installs of counters, but this one has covered every aspect and any problem that a real-live page would cause. Great work!! To be seen on koeln.de soon.”
“Excellent support! Very responsive and quick. Thanks!”
“This plugin is beautiful and easy to use. Thanks!”
Just drag the sliders, pick a color, choose a due date, and presto, you’re presented with you’re Soon HTML and CSS code. It’s really as easy as that, now anyone can create stunning counters.
Soon ships with 15 unique and responsive counter templates. You can use them as is, or tweak them to fit your style. All templates can be viewed on the Soon Live Preview landing page.
Soon is responsive and works on a wide range of modern mobile, tablet and desktop browsers. Soon will automatically measure the available space of the parent container and resize the different counters accordingly.
Soon contains 3 different clock faces. Flip, Matrix and Text. Each face has it’s own animations and customization options. Combined with the two visual styles there’s bound to be a configuration that suits your specific needs.
You can combine the 3 clock faces with 2 different progress visualisations. There’s a circular and a fill visualiser which each have rich customization and animation options.
Set duration mode to have Soon count down a fixed amount of minutes or seconds since page load. In day mode it will count to a certain time on a certain day of the week.
You can have Soon use the server time instead of the browser time by using the fixed date option.
COUNT UP AND DOWN
You can configure Soon to count down towards a date or count up since a date. Useful for counting time since an event.
If no due date is set, Soon will render a Clock instead of a countdown. Perfect for testing if Soon has been setup correctly.
Soon detects if you’re a fan of jQuery, if so, it enables the jQuery API. If you’re not using jQuery, no problem, Soon brings it’s own API.
You can execute scripts on each tick or when the timer runs out by using the available callback methods.
Each face and visual has it’s own animation options to make your counters look extra professional.
Still cool right?
Available for every counter type.
Use the Visual Builder to build your own counters. No coding required. Pick a preset or a blank canvas, select colours, counter types, fonts, sizes. Just copy and paste the resulting snippet and you’re ready to roll.
jQuery (not required)
Soon has got jQuery support, but if you’re not into jQuery that’s not a problem as Soon works without just as well.
Animations & Special Effects
All Soons counters are animated. For instance the text counter can be tweaked with different animation types like slide, roll, twirl and fade. On top of these animations Soon brings reflections to the table.
Soon scales to the available space around it. It’s as simple as that. It does not matter where you place it, Soon will make sure it looks great.
There’s three different clock faces to choose from. You’ve got your basic Text. There’s a classic Flipper and as a bonus there’s the Dot Matrix counter. All three faces can be animated in various ways and have all kinds of sub styles.
Easily create an awesome circular counter. Use solid colours, gradients, define counter direction and set the offset, length and width of the ring. There’s visual effects like glow and shadow plus the ring progress is animated.
Next to the ring you’ve got the option to select a background fill. This is sort of like a vertical, horizontal or diagonal progress bar. Animated and colours can be changed.
Soon comes with a wide range of countdown options. Also, well tested support of timezones.
2016—02-25count down towards a date;
2010—02-25count up since a date;
in 2 hourscount down a fixed amount of hours, minutes or seconds ;
at 12:30:15count down repeatedly towards a time;
sunday at 10count down repeatedly towards a time of day;
Pick between Year, Month, Week, Day, Hour, Minute, Seconds and Milliseconds. The cascade feature allows you to move values between groups, so you can for instance count the total number of seconds till next year.
By default if you don’t set a due or since date, Soon will render a clock, so if you’re looking for a fancy clock, Soon is the way to go.
You can manually set the current time which Soon will use to do it’s calculations.
