Zoomable & Scrollable jQuery Schedule Plugin – jquery-sked-tape

Today I am going to share highly customizable jQuery Plugin which help you to create Zoomable & Scrollable jQuery Schedule management system for your web based application. The jQuery skedTape generates a dynamic, zoomable and scrollable timeline to visualize scheduled events/tasks in a timesheet manner.


  • Allows to adjust the zooming level of the timeline using +/- keys.
  • Allows to scroll through the timeline with mouse wheel.
  • Allows to show/hide the duration in entries.
  • Allows to show/hide the date bar.
  • Useful event handlers.



Add the following libraries on page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="jquery.skedTape.css">
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.min.js" 
<script src="jquery.skedTape.js"></script>


Create html container to display scheduler

<div id="scheduler">


Call the plugin and display scheduler.

var $sked = $('#scheduler').skedTape({
    caption: 'Cities',
    start: yesterday(22, 0), 
    end: today(12, 0),
