Drag & Drop List or Draggable List using HTML CSS & JavaScriptHello readers, Today in this blog you’ll learn how to create Drag & Drop List using HTML CSS & JavaScript. Earlier I have shared a blog on how to create Responsive Counter up Animation on Scroll using HTML CSS & jQuery and now it’s time to create a Draggable List in JavaScript using SortableJS.

 
Drag and drop is a marking device gesture in which the user selects a virtual thing by “grabbing” it and dragging it to a separate area or onto another virtual thing. Sortable JS is a Javascript library that lets you sort or reorder lists by dragging and dropping list items.

In this program [Drag & Drop List or Draggable List], there are five lists or cards on the webpage and these are draggable items or lists. Users can easily reorder the items in an underorder list, giving users a visual dimension to particular actions and modifications. If you’re feeling difficult to understand what I am saying. You can watch a full video tutorial on this program [Drag & Drop List or Draggable List].

Video Tutorial of Drag & Drop List or Draggable List

 
In the video, you have seen the drag & drop list or draggable list and how we can easily reorder items in an unordered list. I hope you have understood the codes behind creating this program. As you know, to make an item draggable I used the JavaScript SortableJS library, so there are no vast codes for JavaScript.


We can also create this type of draggable card using pure JavaScript without using any library or plugin but in there we have to codes more. So using this library how we can easily create these cards or lists which can be drag and drop.

  1. I enjoy your tutorials, and I would like to request a tutorial.
    I've been searching for a quiz app tutorial (I know you have a great tutorial about this), but I need to have draggable answers.
    So, when a user drags a correct answer the program marks it in green (or keeps it there) and when it is wrong, it's marked red. It would be great if wrong answers moved down with the rest of answers when it's wrong.
    As said, it would be great to see this tutorial soon.
    Thank you for your tutorials and your inspiration!
