Pluit Carousel

One of the most widely used Javascript widgets is carousel, it is used everywhere from photo slides, product highlights, page navigation, top stories panel, and others. All literally are carousel but with different look and feel.

Pluit Carousel is a simple carousel written to be as bare and simple as possible; so you can use it right away, or easily customize to meet your carousel needs. The idea is to use the same semantically structured HTML and Javascript initialization codes, and applying different skins for customized look and feel. And If you need more advanced behavior, you can easily extend Pluit.Carousel.

If you have created new skins that you would like to share with others, ping me so that I can include the references on this page. Thanks!

Tested on Prototype 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous 1.8.3.
