Animated number counters are seen on many landing pages. They bring a cool effect (movement) to the page and convey some important information or quick facts in numbers.

There are limitless ways to put the number counters to use. Could be projects done, clients, staff, lines of code, etc.

We used 4 animated number counters in Oxygen, when redesigning our landing page for PIT Designs & Consultancy - Melbourne Web Design.

So let's get started with a step by step tutorial on how to create this cool element in Oxygen, using JS and CSS for styling.

Creating animated number counters in Oxygen, using JS & CSS

Add Counter-Up JS

For this to work, we will take advantage of jquery.counterup.js by @bfintal. head to https://github.com/bfintal/Counter-Up
And download jquery.counterup.min.js, upload it to your server.

Include Both JS in Code Box

Add Code block in Oxyge, in the HTML section, add two external JS links. First is the one you uploaded from step one.
The second is this
https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/waypoints/2.0.3/waypoints.min.js
So you have two JavaScripts now. Refer to the above image.

jQuery to Trigger the Effect

In the same Code Block you added, go to JavaScript section and add this jQuery code:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
jQuery('.fancycount').counterUp({
delay: 10,
time: 1500
});
});

This jQuery basically calls the counter up script we added in step one. Which makes the whole thing work.

Add the Numbers

At this point, we have the scripts ready to animate number counters. All that's left is adding a text element, and writing the number we want in.
Add text element, and give it a class of fancycount. as shown in the above image.

Final Step

Duplicate the text element, for as many times as you want, edit each text with a different number. And style it as you wish with CSS.
since you will be using the same class for all text elements, styling one of them, will apply to all.
