Timeline tools let you visualize events in time, chronologically, on a web page. They can be a great alternative to plain text for telling a story, using rich media and interactive features.


Timeline.js is an open-source tool that enables you to build visually-rich interactive timelines and is available in 40 languages.


Timeline will help you createa vertically-structured timeline. It utilizes a handful of libraries, including Tabletop.js (for the data storage) and Isotope for the layout.
