Counter in JavaScript with source code


Counter project is a counting number-based web project. This project deals with displaying counting number animation. It is coded in HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript.

In this tutorial, we will be creating counting numbers showing the current status. First, we need to create a folder with html, css, and js files. This type of counting number can be seen in different types of websites. These counting number determines the current number of different fields. Such as total employee, no of codes, awards, and many more.

We are using a container that includes icons and text. We will be using font awesome icons. The project is responsive from small to large devices.

We will be using CSS for styling the whole counter project. Such as background colour, icons, text, aligning, flex-items, colours and many more.


@import url('');

* {
    box-sizing: border-box;

body {
  font-family: 'Roboto Mono', sans-serif;
  background-color: rgb(68, 146, 214);
  color: aliceblue;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  height: 100vh;
  overflow: hidden;
  margin: 0;


.counter-container {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  justify-content: center;
  text-align: center;
  margin: 30px 50px;
  font-weight: 700;


.counter {
  font-size: 60px;
  margin-top: 10px;
  font-weight: 500;

@media(max-width: 580px) {
  body {
    flex-direction: column;


The JavaScript code is added for making counting number. The special animation is added from JavaScript code. The speed of the numbers can be increased or decreased. Check the js code below.


const counters = document.querySelectorAll('.counter')
counters.forEach(counter => {
    counter.innerText = '0'
    const updateCounter = () => {
        const target = +counter.getAttribute('data-target')
        const c = +counter.innerText
        const increment = target / 1000

        if(c < target) {
            counter.innerText = `${Math.ceil(c + increment)}`
            setTimeout(updateCounter, 1)
        } else {
            counter.innerText = target
