Spree Showcase

Spree Showcase is a simple extension that allows you to create the good ol' slideshow. The goal is to create a slideshow extension that makes things easy for the users and programmers. Minimal effort needed.

The secondary objective is to create a slideshow template that allows most types of JS slider to be implemented easily into Spree.

Remember to run rake assets:clean, otherwise the javascript library might not be loaded.

Supports Spree 1.1 and 1.3


The default Deface override is automatically added to your Project in


This default override acts to add the Showcase slide show to the main spree_application_home layout, at the top of the #wrapper div.

To change where the slide show appears, simply edit this Deface override in add_showcase_to_home_layout.

For example to add it to a home page at top of div id main-slideshow :
  :virtual_path => 'spree/home/index',
  :name => 'add_spree_slider_to_home_index',
  :insert_top => "#main-slideshow",
  :partial => "spree/slides/showcase.html.erb"
