Slim Slider is a really simple jQuery plugin used to create a nice clean, infinite-looping image carousel/slider from a plain Html list.

How to use it:

1. Insert a list of images into the carousel.

<div id="slider-inner">
  <ul>
    <li><img src="img/1.jpg" alt=""></li>
    <li><img src="img/2.jpg" alt=""></li>
    <li><img src="img/3.jpg" alt=""></li>
    <li><img src="img/4.jpg" alt=""></li>
    <li><img src="img/5.jpg" alt=""></li>
  </ul>
</div>

2. Create links for next/prev navigation.

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

3. Wrap the image list & navigation into a container. The full markup structure should be like this:

<div class="slider-demo">
  <a href="#" id="previous">&laquo;</a>
  <div id="slider-inner">
    <ul>
      <li><img src="img/1.jpg" alt=""></li>
      <li><img src="img/2.jpg" alt=""></li>
      <li><img src="img/3.jpg" alt=""></li>
      <li><img src="img/4.jpg" alt=""></li>
      <li><img src="img/5.jpg" alt=""></li>
    </ul>
  </div>
  <a href="#" id="next">&raquo;</a> 
</div>

4. Load the needed jQuery library and the slider.jquery.js script at the bottom of the html page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.2.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/slider.jquery.js"></script>

5. Initialize the image carousel.

$('#slider-inner').slider('#previous', '#next');

6. The sample CSS to style the image carousel. Feel free to add your own styles to the image carousel as you like.

/* Next/prev navigation */

a#next {
  left: -35px;
  transition: all ease 0.5s;
}

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

a#previous {
  right: -35px;
  transition: all ease 0.5s;
}

a#previous:hover { right: -25px; }

.slider-demo {
  margin: 70px auto;
  text-align: center;
  width: 650px;
}

/* Sider wrapper */

.slider-demo a {
  background-color: #ededed;
  border-radius: 50%;
  color: #444;
  font-size: 5em;
  line-height: 60px;
  padding-bottom: 12px;
  position: relative;
  text-decoration: none;
  width: 72px;
  z-index: 2;
}

.slider-demo a:hover {
  color: black;
  background-color: #cdcdcd;
}

.slider-demo a,
#slider-inner {
  display: inline-block;
  vertical-align: middle;
}

/* Primaty styles */

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

#slider-inner ul {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  position: relative;
  width: 1200px;
}

#slider-inner li {
  background-color: #88BC40;
  font-size: 30px;
  float: left;
  height: 167px;
  line-height: 167px;
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0;
  position: relative;
  width: 230px;
}
