You've seen them on many sites. If time is involved, there's usually a countdown clock somewhere.
After all, you only have 2 days, 4 hours, 12 minutes and 2 seconds to grab that unbelievable Groupon deal. And your sister-in-law's website is launching in 3 months and 4 days (somebody was playing with the website builder widgets).
Whether it's the end of a sale, an upcoming event, or just a clock showing the current time, there are numerous uses for adding a time clock or countdown clock to your site. In this article, I'll show you exactly how to add a flip clock or a text clock to your site. Thanks to the builder tool, it will only take seconds.
As the starting point for creating these clocks, we're going to use two different helper libraries (FlipClock.js and jQuery.countdown). We could write it all by hand, but other kind folks have already done most of the heavy lifting for us!
