jquery.formslider Build Status Coverage Status Code Climate npm Beerpay


This jquery.formslider integrates a modified Flexslider with logical slide pages that can have features and behaviors provided by plugins.

The main goal is to have different actions and policies triggered depending on what role the actual slide is. For example: You can stop going forward when a formula input is invalid.

The jquery.formslider runs in production, is performance optimized, full responsive and touch capable. You can easily write you own plugins and implement custom slide behaviors.

Check out the demo implementation:


bower install jquery.formslider --save

# or

npm install -g bower
npm install jquery.formslider --save

# if you want to develop the source you also have to:

npm install gulp-cli -g

Example use case

This is a typical use case for marketer customers journey:

  • you have a few question slides the user can answer and go forth and back
  • there is a zipcode slide the user can enter a 4-5 digit zipcode
  • the loader slide shows a loading animation while navigation is blocked
  • the contact slide collects contact information and submits them together with the answers
  • the confirmation slide shows error/success message and gives more deeplinks

This functionality is provided by core or optional plugins. You can also develop your own logical flow by extend, interact or configure these plugins.
