jQuery NiceScroll

2013-01-22

I would like to share a tip today. Nicescroll, a jQuery plugin that gives your site custom made scrollbars. With a lot of customization options, it’s easy to add them on the whole page or on individual boxes. They’re descrete and by default they look similar to the scrollbars in OSX. It really feels like a solid, well-made plugin with great compatibility with older browsers, mobile and other touchscreen devices. The plugin doesn’t mess with your other code and leaves the native browser functionality alone.

I’ve used it in many projects which have required a customized scrollbar with great result and customer satisfaction. I’ll also be using it myself in the new theme which is currently in production. A great addition to any site. You can download it from the official site where you can also find the documentation and examples.
