How to use it:

1. Install & download the library with NPM.

# NPM
$ npm install @glidejs/glide --save

2. Import the Glide.js into your project.

// Core Stylesheet
@import "node_modules/@glidejs/glide/src/assets/sass/glide.core";
// Theme Stylesheet
@import "node_modules/@glidejs/glide/src/assets/sass/glide.theme";

import Glide from '@glidejs/glide'

3. Or directly load the JavaScript and CSS files in the document.

<!-- Local -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/css/glide.core.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/css/glide.theme.min.css">
<script src="dist/glide.min.js"></script>

<!-- CDN -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@glidejs/[email protected]/dist/css/glide.core.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@glidejs/[email protected]/dist/css/glide.theme.min.css">
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@glidejs/[email protected]/dist/glide.min.js"></script>

4. Create the html for the slides, pagination bullets and navigation arrows.

<div class="glide">
  <!-- Slides here -->
  <div class="glide__track" data-glide-el="track">
    <ul class="glide__slides">
      <li class="glide__slide">Slide 1</li>
      <li class="glide__slide">Slide 2</li>
      <li class="glide__slide">Slide 3</li>
    </ul>
  </div>
  <!-- Navigation -->
  <div class="glide__arrows" data-glide-el="controls">
    <button class="glide__arrow glide__arrow--left" data-glide-dir="<">prev</button>
    <button class="glide__arrow glide__arrow--right" data-glide-dir=">">next</button>
  </div>
  <!-- Pagination -->
  <div class="glide__bullets" data-glide-el="controls[nav]">
    <button class="glide__bullet" data-glide-dir="=0"></button>
    <button class="glide__bullet" data-glide-dir="=1"></button>
    <button class="glide__bullet" data-glide-dir="=2"></button>
  </div>
</div>

5. Create custom controls for the slider (OPTIONAL).

<div data-glide-el="controls">
  <button data-glide-dir="<">Previous</button>
  <button data-glide-dir=">">Next</button>
  <button data-glide-dir="<<">First</button>
  <button data-glide-dir=">>">Last</button>
  <button data-glide-dir="=1">Goto The Slide 2</button>
</div>

6. Initialize the Glide.js with default settings. That's it.

new Glide('.glide').mount();

7. Possible options to customize the slider.

new Glide('.glide', {

    // Auto change slides after specifed interval.
    autoplay: 4000,

    // Slider type. 
    // carousel, slider or slideshow.
    type: 'carousel',

    // Start slider at specifed slide number.
    startAt: 1,

    // Pause autoplay on mouseover the slider.
    hoverpause: true,

    // Change slide on left/right keyboard arrow press.
    keyboard: true,

    // The number of slides to show per screen
    perView: 1,

    // 'center' or 1,2,3...
    focusAt: 0,

    // Space between slides
    gap: 10,

    // Stop running perView number of slides from the end

    // False for turning off touch.
    swipeThreshold: 80,

    // Maximum number of slides moved per single swipe or drag
    perTouch: false,

    // Alternate moving distance ratio of swiping and dragging
    touchRatio: .5,

    // False for turning off drag.
    dragThreshold: 120,

    // Call the resize events at most once per every wait in milliseconds.
    throttle: 16,

    // Enable infinite loop on slider type
    rewind: true,

    // Duration of the rewinding animation
    rewindDuration: 800,

    direction: 

    // The value of the future viewports which have to be visible in the current view
    // e.g. 100 or { before: 100, after: 50 }
    peek: 0,

    // Options applied at specified media breakpoints
    breakpoints: {},

    // Default CSS classes
    classes: {
      direction: {
        ltr: 'glide--ltr',
        rtl: 'glide--rtl'
      },
      slider: 'glide--slider',
      carousel: 'glide--carousel',
      swipeable: 'glide--swipeable',
      dragging: 'glide--dragging',
      cloneSlide: 'glide__slide--clone',
