swipeSlider is a very basic touch swiper/slider plugin for jQuery that enables the users to slide through images (or any other elements) via mouse drag and touch swipe.

How to use it:

1. The basic HTML markup structure for the slider. You're allowed to embed any html content to the slides as follow:

<div id="slider">
    <div class="slide-1">
      Slide 1
    <div class="slide-2">
      Slide 2
    <div class="slide-3">
      Slide 3

2. The basic CSS styles:

.ss-slider {
  height: 100%;
  overflow: hidden;

.ss-slider > .ss-slides {
  height: 100%;
  overflow: hidden;
  user-select: none;
  width: 100%;

.ss-slider > .ss-slides > .ss-slide {
  float: left;
  height: 100%;
  overflow: hidden;
  position: relative;

3. Link to the latest version of jQuery library and the jQuery swipeSlider plugin.

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

4. Enable the touch slider with default options.

var slider = $('#slider').swipeSlider();

5. If you'd like to create custom controls to slide through the slides manually.

<a href="#" class="previous">Previous</a>
<a href="#" class="next">Next</a>
$('.next').on('click', function() {

$('.previous').on('click', function() {

6. All default configuration options and callback functions.

var slider = $('#slider').swipeSlider({
    animationDuration: 300,
    autoReverse: false,
    autoTransitionDuration: false,
    bounce: true,
    drag: true,
    infinite: false,
    onSlideStartCallback: undefined,
    onSlideCompleteCallback: undefined,
    onMoveCallback: undefined,
    onStartCallback: undefined,
    startIndex: 0
