Table of Contents


This app uses our store builder with the blocks architecture. To know more about Store Builder click here.

We add the carousel as a block in our Store.

To configure or customize this app, you need to import it in your dependencies in manifest.json.

  dependencies: {
    "vtex.carousel": "2.x"

Then, add carousel block into your app theme as we do in our Store theme app.

Now, you can change the behavior of the carousel block that is in the store header. See an example of how to configure:

"carousel#home": {
    "props": {
      "autoplay": true,
      "autoplaySpeed": 4,
      "banners": [],
      "height": 440,
      "showArrows": true,
      "showDots": true

Blocks API

When implementing this app as a block, various inner blocks may be available. The following interface lists the available blocks within carousel and describes if they are required or optional.

"carousel": {
  "component": "Carousel"

For now this block does not have any required or optional blocks.


Through the Storefront, you can change the carousel's behavior and interface. However, you also can make in your theme app, as Store theme does.

Styles API

This app provides some CSS classes as an API for style customization.

To use this CSS API, you must add the styles builder and create an app styling CSS file.

  1. Add the styles builder to your manifest.json:
  "builders": {
    "styles": "1.x"
  1. Create a file called vtex.carousel.css inside the styles/css folder. Add your custom styles:
.container {
  margin-top: 10px;
