4. Building Custom Scrollbars > Time for action – simple custom scrollbars

Time for action – simple custom scrollbars

You can see that the operating system's default scrollbars stick out like a sore thumb in the middle of our nicely designed page. Let's fix that, shall we?

  1. First, we've got to get our hands on the plugin we'd like to use to create our custom scrollbars. Head over to http://jscrollpane.kelvinluck.com/ and click on the Download link in the navigation menu:
    Time for action – simple custom scrollbars

    This will jump you down to the Download section of the site, where you'll see Kelvin Luck is using Github to host his code. Github is a social coding hub – a sort of Facebook for developers – where the main focus is on writing, sharing, and discussing code. Hosting jQuery plugins and other open source code projects with Github is becoming more and more common these days as Github offers developers an easy way to share and collaborate on their code with others.

    Don't worry – downloading a plugin from Github is simple. I'll walk you through it.
