    A Better Simple Slideshow

    This is a fairly basic slideshow, written in javascript. This is a dual-purpose project, it's meant to be something you can drop right into your page and use if you so choose, but it's also meant as an example/tutorial script showing how to build a simple DIY slideshow from scratch on your own. Here is a tutorial/walkthrough.


    • fully responsive
    • option for auto-advancing slides, or manually advancing by user
    • multiple slideshows per-page
    • supports arrow-key navigation
    • full-screen toggle using HTML5 fullscreen api
    • swipe events supported on touch devices (requires hammer.js)
    • written in vanilla JS--this means no jQuery dependency (much 💖 for jQuery though!)
    • can be used with require()

    Getting Started

    1. HTML markup for the slideshow should look basically like this, with a container element wrapping the whole thing (doesn't have to be a <div>) and each slide is a <figure>.

          <div class="bss-slides">
                  <img src="path/to/img" width="100%" />
                  <figcaption>Caption goes here</figcaption>
              <!-- more figures here as needed -->
    2. Include the script: js/better-simple-slideshow.min.js or js/better-simple-slideshow.js

    3. Include the stylesheet css/simple-slideshow-styles.css

    4. Initialize the slideshow:



    To customize functionality, create an options object, then pass it into makeBSS() as the second argument, as seen below:

    var opts = {
                //auto-advancing slides? accepts boolean (true/false) or object
                auto : {
                    // speed to advance slides at. accepts number of milliseconds
                    speed : 2500,
                    // pause advancing on mouseover? accepts boolean
                    pauseOnHover : true
                // show fullscreen toggle? accepts boolean
                fullScreen : true,
                // support swiping on touch devices? accepts boolean, requires hammer.js
                swipe : true
    makeBSS('.bss-slides', opts);

    Better Than What?

    The name "Better Simple Slideshow" isn't meant to disparage your favorite javascript slideshow, or to imply that this is the best slideshow script out there (far from it, actually). It's just meant to be better than the earlier version that it evolved out of :)
