A simple and easy-to-use jQuery & CSS3 carousel slider which allows to cycle through a set of Html contents with smooth sliding effect.

How to use it:

1. Include the Font Awesome 4 for the control icons.

<link href="//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.1.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Create a content slider with controls as follows. Use Html5 data-color attribute to specify the background color for each slide.

<div id="slider-wrap">
  <ul id="slider">

    <li data-color="#1abc9c">
      <div>
        <h3>Slide #1</h3>
        <span>Sub-title #1</span>
      </div>
    </li>

    <li data-color="#1abc9c">
      <div>
        <h3>Slide #2</h3>
        <span>Sub-title #2</span>
      </div>
    </li>

    <li data-color="#1abc9c">
      <div>
        <h3>Slide #3</h3>
        <span>Sub-title #3</span>
      </div>
    </li>
  </ul>
  
  <!--controls-->
  <div class="btns" id="next"><i class="fa fa-arrow-right"></i></div>
  <div class="btns" id="previous"><i class="fa fa-arrow-left"></i></div>
  <div id="counter"></div>
  <div id="pagination-wrap">
    <ul>
    </ul>
  </div>
  <!--controls--> 
  
</div>

5. The JQuery script to enable the content slider.

var pos = 0; // current position

var totalSlides = $('#slider-wrap ul li').length;

var sliderWidth = $('#slider-wrap').width();


$(document).ready(function(){

$('#slider-wrap ul#slider').width(sliderWidth*totalSlides);

$('#next').click(function(){
slideRight();
});

$('#previous').click(function(){
slideLeft();
});

var autoSlider = setInterval(slideRight, 3000);

$.each($('#slider-wrap ul li'), function() { 
   var c = $(this).attr("data-color");
   $(this).css("background",c);
   
   var li = document.createElement('li');
   $('#pagination-wrap ul').append(li);   
});

countSlides();

pagination();

$('#slider-wrap').hover(
  function(){ $(this).addClass('active'); clearInterval(autoSlider); }, 
  function(){ $(this).removeClass('active'); autoSlider = setInterval(slideRight, 3000); }
);

});


function slideLeft(){
pos--;
if(pos==-1){ pos = totalSlides-1; }
$('#slider-wrap ul#slider').css('left', -(sliderWidth*pos)); 

countSlides();
pagination();
}

function slideRight(){
pos++;
if(pos==totalSlides){ pos = 0; }
$('#slider-wrap ul#slider').css('left', -(sliderWidth*pos)); 

countSlides();
pagination();
}

function countSlides(){
$('#counter').html(pos+1 + ' / ' + totalSlides);
}

function pagination(){
$('#pagination-wrap ul li').removeClass('active');
$('#pagination-wrap ul li:eq('+pos+')').addClass('active');
}
