Lightweight Responsive Slideshow Plugin with jQuery - eS-slideshow

eS-slideshow is a simple, lightweight, flexible, responsive jQuery slideshow plugin featuring keyboard navigation, pagination, fade in/out transitions and much more.


  • Responsive: This is default by design. All slides must have equal width / height. This plugin is not for variable height photos
  • Lightweight: Only 3KB (compressed)
  • Navigation: Options for previous and next buttons, pager, as well as keyboard navigation.
  • Easy to use: Just include the js/css and called .eSslideshow() any div containing slides
  • Flexible: Use images for slides, or use div content (must be equal wide/height). Slideshow adds .eS-active class to active slides so that you can customize CSS3 animations if wanted.

Basic Usage:

1. Load jQuery library together with eS-slideshow.v1.0.css and eS-slideshow.v1.0.min.js in your web page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/eS-slideshow.v1.0.css">
<script src="//"></script>
<script src="js/eS-slideshow.v1.0.min.js"></script>

2. Insert your images into a DIV container.

<div class="slideshow">
  <img src="">
  <img src="">
  <img src="">
  <img src="">
  <img src="">
  <img src="">

3. Call the plugin to initialize the slideshow with default options.
