In your web page:
<script src="jquery.js"></script> <script src="dist/responsive-carousel.min.js"></script> <link href="src/responsive-carousel.css" rel="stylesheet"> <div class="carousel"> <div> <!-- carousel item content here --> </div> <div> <!-- carousel item content here --> </div> </div>
The default build includes the slide/drag transition that you can apply by adding a data attribute and including some additional CSS.
<script src="jquery.js"></script> <script src="dist/responsive-carousel.min.js"></script> <link href="src/responsive-carousel.css" rel="stylesheet"> <link href="src/responsive-carousel.slide.css" rel="stylesheet"> <div class="carousel" data-transition="slide"> <div> <!-- carousel item content here --> </div> <div> <!-- carousel item content here --> </div> </div>
There are other extensions in the
src folder, such as flip and fade transitions, autoplay, keyboard handling, pagination, and more. If you'd like to create a build that includes certain extensions, just add them to the JS files listed under
concat in the
Gruntfile.js file, and run
grunt from a command line.

Preventing Content Looping
The default carousel (
responsive-carousel.js) returns to the initial active item(s) once it reaches the end of its list. This behavior can be disabled by annotating the carousel DOM element with
data-loop='false' and including
responsive-carousel.loop.js directly after the core carousel JS. For example:
... <script src="path/to/responsive-carousel.js"></script> <script src="path/to/responsive-carousel.loop.js"></script> ... <div class="carousel" data-loop="false"> <div> <img src="..."> </div> ... </div>
Then, after both the carousel and plugin have loaded you can initialize as normal.
$( ".carousel" ).carousel();
When the carousel reaches the end or beginning of the list, the inserted navigation links (
a.prev) will be decorated with an additional
disabled class. This class receives no properties from the library by default.

Set the Carousel Speed
To declaratively set the speed of the carousel, add a
data-interval to the carousel container with a value set in milliseconds.
<!-- set the carousel to change every 5 seconds --> <div class="carousel" data-autoplay data-interval="5000"> <div> <img src="..."> </div> ... </div>

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
Also, please don't edit files in the "dist" subdirectory as they are generated via grunt. You'll find source code in the "src" subdirectory!
