marquisina.js is a simple and lightweight jQuery plugin that makes it easier to implement an infinite-looping image carousel/slider on your web page.

How to use it:

1. Insert a list of images into a container element as shown below.

<div id="carousel">
  <ul>
    <li><img src="http://lorempixel.com/230/167/city" alt=""></li>
    <li><img src="http://lorempixel.com/230/167/food" alt=""></li>
    <li><img src="http://lorempixel.com/230/167/animals" alt=""></li>
    <li><img src="http://lorempixel.com/230/167/cats" alt=""></li>
    <li><img src="http://lorempixel.com/230/167/fashion" alt=""></li>
  </ul>
</div>

2. Create prev/next controls for the image carousel.

<a href="#" id="prev">&laquo;</a>
<a href="#" id="next">&raquo;</a>

3. Load the jQuery marquisina.js plugin after you have jQuery library loaded.

#carousel {
  display: inline-block;
  vertical-align: middle;
}

#carousel {
  background-color: #88BC40;
  border-radius: 4px;
  border: 10px solid white;
  box-shadow: 0px 0px 25px 5px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);
  overflow: hidden;
  position: relative;
  width: 460px;
  z-index: 5;
}

#carousel ul {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  position: relative;
  width: 1200px;
}

#carousel li {
  float: left;
  font-size: 30px;
  height: 167px;
  line-height: 167px;
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0;
  position: relative;
  width: 230px;
}

#next { left: -35px; }

#next:hover { left: -25px; }

#prev { right: -35px; }

#prev:hover { right: -25px; }

4. The required CSS styles for the image carousel.

#carousel {
  display: inline-block;
  vertical-align: middle;
}

#carousel {
  background-color: #88BC40;
  border-radius: 4px;
  border: 10px solid white;
  box-shadow: 0px 0px 25px 5px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);
  overflow: hidden;
  position: relative;
  width: 460px;
  z-index: 5;
}

#carousel ul {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  position: relative;
  width: 1200px;
}

#carousel li {
  float: left;
  font-size: 30px;
  height: 167px;
  line-height: 167px;
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0;
  position: relative;
  width: 230px;
}

#next { left: -35px; }

#next:hover { left: -25px; }

#prev { right: -35px; }

#prev:hover { right: -25px; }

5. Call the plugin on document ready and specify the CSS selectors of prev/next controls.

$('#carousel').marquesina('#prev', '#next');
