Basic Responsive Fullscreen Slideshow with jQuery - extendo

extendo is a very small (~1kb minified) jQuery plugin to create a responsive fullscreen slideshow that automatically resizes & crops the images to fit your window's size.

How to use it:

1. Add any number of images into a container element.

<div id="slideshow">
  <img src="1.jpg" alt="Slideshow 1" class="active">
  <img src="2.jpg" alt="Slideshow 2">
  <img src="3.jpg" alt="Slideshow 3">
  <img src="4.jpg" alt="Slideshow 4">
  <img src="5.jpg" alt="Slideshow 5">

2. Include jQuery library and the jQuery extendo plugin on your webpage.

<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.extendo.min.js"></script>

3. Call the plugin on the container.

  order: "list" // or 'random'

4. The core CSS styles to make the slideshow responsive.

#slideshow {
  position: relative;
  height: 350px;
  z-index: -1;

#slideshow img {
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  z-index: 8;
  opacity: 0.0;

#slideshow {
  z-index: 10;
  opacity: 1.0;

#slideshow img.last-active { z-index: 9; }

#slideshow img {
  /* Set rules to fill background */
  min-height: 100%;
  min-width: 1024px;
  /* Set up proportionate scaling */
  width: 100%;
  height: auto;
  /* Set up positioning */
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;

@media screen and (max-width: 1024px) { {
  left: 50%;
  margin-left: -512px;
