glide.js is a simple, flexible, and heavily customizable image slideshow/carousel/slider plugin that features image preloading, animated captions, pagination & keyboard navigation, auto-rotation, custom animations and much more. You can find more demos under the demos folder in the zip. Licensed under the Apache License.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery glide.js plugin after your jQuery JavaScript library.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="path/toglide.css">
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.2.min.js"></script>
<script src="path/to/glide.js"></script>

2. Load the jQuery easing plugin if you would like to use more easing effects.

<script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery-easing/1.3/jquery.easing.min.js"></script>

3. Add you images as slides into the slider as shown below.

<div id="demo">
  <div class="slider_container">
    <div class="slide">
      <img title="Image Caption 1" 
    <div class="slide">
      <img title="Image Caption 2" 
    <div class="slide">
      <img title="Image Caption 3" 

4. Call the glide() methods on the parent container to create a basic image slider with default options.


5. All customization options.
