Harper Banner is an ultra-light jQuery plugin for creating a responsive fullscreen slideshow that automatically fades through a list of background images at a specific speed. The background images will automatically resize to fit the size of the viewport.

How to use it:

1. The required html structure for the background slideshow.

<div class="banner">
  <div class="overlay"></div>
  <ul class="slides">
    <li data-background="1.jpg">
      <div class="holder">
        <h1>Slide 1</h1>
        <h2>This is slide 1</h2>
      </div>
    </li>
    <li data-background="2.jpg">
      <div class="holder">
        <h1>Slide 2</h1>
        <h2>This is slide 2</h2>
      </div>
    </li>
    <li data-background="3.jpg">
      <div class="holder">
        <h1>Slide 3</h1>
        <h2>This is slide 3</h2>
      </div>
    </li>
  </ul>
  <ul class="controls"></ul>
</div>

.banner ul.slides { background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5); }

.banner ul.slides li, .banner .overlay {
