We do not need more JS sliders, there is plenty of alternatives. But while look at them, I realized they all force you into learning their small quirks. That is a total annoyance and waste of time, so I set myself to write a super simple, super easy and understandable slider: the qndslider, the Quick and Dirty Slider.
You can download and use at your leisure: https://github.com/federicojacobi/qndslider
The beauty of it, is that I coded the basics of any slider to save you time, but you are in control of the interaction. I.E. you can call mySlider.next() to move to the next slide, but have a callback on what happens after the slider changes. All the basic funcionality is in, next(), previous(), timers, start(), stop().
It is NOT a jQuery plugin, but it does use jQuery to find the elements.
You don’t have to use Divs, it could be UL/LI or P/SPAN as long as the slides have the “slide” class and the wrapper the id you call in the JS, in this case “GreatSlider”.
No, it doesnt have NEXT or PREV arrows, that is up to you. How you place them, how you style them, etc. it is ALL up to you. That way, is a bit hard, but you understand exactly what’s going on. Same goes for current slide and stuff like that. See more detailes at Github.
