noUiSLider is a jQuery plugin for turning an HTML object into a nice range slider.
The plugin is well-built, featuring a callback for every possible thing the user can do with the slider.
Of course, you can build a more powerful slider with jQuery’s UI library, but this alternative weighs only 6 kb, and is thus a better fit if you simply need a slider.
The slider is stylable via CSS, and, of course, allows reading values from the slider.
