🔥 Create a progress circle without a plugin

Need to create a progress circle in your app?

Here’s some sneaky code so you can do it for free without a plugin :wink: :point_down:

Step 1

Add the following code to the HTML header of the page(s) where you want to display the progress circle.

Why? This imports a javascript library that contains a lot of the necessary underlying code.

Pro tip: download this file and add to the file manager of your app (self-host) in case this file becomes unavailable at some point

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/appforest_uf/f1653801289839x298259557076639100/progressbar.js" async></script>

Step 2

Create an HTML element wherever you’d like to display the progress circle, and add this code

#container {
  width: 140px;
  height: 140px;
  position: relative;

var bar = new ProgressBar.Circle(container, {
  color: '#aaa',
  // This has to be the same size as the maximum width to
  // prevent clipping
  strokeWidth: 8,
  trailWidth: 1,
  easing: 'easeInOut',
  duration: 0,
  text: {
    autoStyleContainer: false
  from: { color: '#33CD5F', width: 4 },
  to: { color: '#33CD5F', width: 4 },
  // Set default step function for all animate calls
  step: function(state, circle) {
    circle.path.setAttribute('stroke', state.color);
    circle.path.setAttribute('stroke-width', state.width);

    var value = Math.round(circle.value() * 100);
    if (value === 0) {
    } else {
      circle.setText(value + '%');

bar.text.style.fontFamily = 'Montserrat';
bar.text.style.fontSize = '1.25rem';

bar.animate(0.75);  // Number from 0.0 to 1.0

<div id="container"></div>

Step 3

Customize it.

Change the width/height to a size of your liking (make sure this is slightly smaller than the size of your HTML element so it doesn’t get clipped

Set the progress

Make the ‘0.75’ dynamic to show progress

Change the color & width

The default is a gradient, but in this case, I’ve set the color to a solid green. You can also change the width here.
