noUiSlider is lightweight JavaScript range slider, originally developed to be a jQuery UI alternative.

It features cross-browser support, a wide range of options and support for a bunch of touch devices. It has been tested on Android phones, iPhone & iPad, Windows phone and touch-screen laptops and tablets and desktops.

All modern browsers and IE8+ are supported. The end result? A lean, extendible and bloat-less plugin that'll just do its job.

The best part? noUiSlider has no dependencies! As of version 8, jQuery is no longer required!

Oh, and the licensing terms are simple: just Do What the Fuck You Want with it.


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

Bower users can install all compiled and minified files easily using bower install nouislider --save. Supporting bower unfortunately means keeping all compiled and minified versions in the repository.


This library is UMD compatible, so you can use it in this way:

var noUiSlider = require('nouislider');

var slider = document.getElementById('slider');

noUiSlider.create(slider, {
  start: 40,
  connect: "lower",
  range: {
    min: 0,
    max: 100

Browser support

All major browsers are supported. To support IE8 you'll need to shim several ES5 features.

You can use to easily do so:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge">
<!--[if lte IE 8]>
<script src=""></script>

Version numbering

Version numbering follows the 'Semantic versioning' style. You'll find an excellent documentation at
