Touch Slider is a really simple jQuery plugin for creating a fully responsive, mobile-compatible content slider that supports any html content and touch swipe & mouse drag events.

How to use it:

1. Insert a list of images (or any html elements) into a container like this:

<div class="slider">
    <li><img src="1.jpg" /></li>
    <li><img src="2.jpg" /></li>
    <li><img src="3.jpg" /></li>

2. The required CSS styles for the touch slider.

.touch-slider-left, .touch-slider-right {
  display: inline-block;
  background: rgba(0,0,0,.1);
  width: 50px;
  height: 50px;
  border-radius: 25px;
  position: absolute;
  top: 50%;
  margin-top: -25px;
  -webkit-transition: background 0.2s;
  text-align: center;
  line-height: 50px;
  text-decoration: none;
  font-size: 20px

.touch-slider-left:hover, .touch-slider-right:hover { background: rgba(0,0,0,.2) }

.touch-slider-left { left: 2%; }

.touch-slider-right { right: 2%; }

.touch-slider-viewport {
  overflow: hidden;
  -webkit-backface-visibility: hidden;
  position: relative

.touch-slider-viewport ul {
  position: relative;
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  cursor: -webkit-grab;
  cursor: -moz-grab;
  overflow: hidden;
  -webkit-backface-visibility: hidden;
  -webkit-user-select: none;  /* Chrome all / Safari all */
  -moz-user-select: none;     /* Firefox all */
  -ms-user-select: none;      /* IE 10+ */
  /* No support for these yet, use at own risk */
  -o-user-select: none;
  user-select: none;

.touch-slider-viewport ul:active { cursor: -webkit-grabbing; }

.touch-slider-viewport li {
  float: left;
  -webkit-backface-visibility: hidden;
  -webkit-perspective: 100px;
  overflow: hidden;

.touch-slider-viewport img {
  display: block;
  max-width: 100%;
  margin: 0 auto;

.touch-slider-menu { text-align: center; }

.touch-slider-menu a {
  display: inline-block;
  font-size: 0;
  width: 8px;
  height: 8px;
  background: #ddd;
  border-radius: 4px;
  margin: 0 2px;

.touch-slider-menu, .touch-slider-menu a:hover { background: #999 }

/* Media Queries */

@media screen and (max-width: 500px) {

.touch-slider-left, .touch-slider-right { display: none }

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="jquery.touchSlider.js"></script>

4. Initialize the touch slider.
