How the SSR mode works?

  • Demo for the SSR are at here
  • Try to disable JavaScript to test if it renders on the server-side.

Here is a lighter version of the library for detecting the user's device type alternative

If you are using Nextjs, you can choose to only bundle it on the server-side.

Minimum working set up.

import Carousel from "react-multi-carousel";
import "react-multi-carousel/lib/styles.css";
const responsive = {
  superLargeDesktop: {
    // the naming can be any, depends on you.
    breakpoint: { max: 4000, min: 3000 },
    items: 5,
  },
  desktop: {
    breakpoint: { max: 3000, min: 1024 },
    items: 3,
  },
  tablet: {
    breakpoint: { max: 1024, min: 464 },
    items: 2,
  },
  mobile: {
    breakpoint: { max: 464, min: 0 },
    items: 1,
  },
};
<Carousel responsive={responsive}>
  <div>Item 1</div>
  <div>Item 2</div>
  <div>Item 3</div>
  <div>Item 4</div>
</Carousel>;

Common Usage

import Carousel from "react-multi-carousel";
import "react-multi-carousel/lib/styles.css";
 
const responsive = {
  desktop: {
    breakpoint: { max: 3000, min: 1024 },
    items: 3,
    slidesToSlide: 3, // optional, default to 1.
  },
  tablet: {
    breakpoint: { max: 1024, min: 464 },
    items: 2,
    slidesToSlide: 2, // optional, default to 1.
  },
  mobile: {
    breakpoint: { max: 464, min: 0 },
    items: 1,
    slidesToSlide: 1, // optional, default to 1.
  },
};
<Carousel
  swipeable={false}
  draggable={false}
  showDots={true}
  responsive={responsive}
  ssr={true} // means to render carousel on server-side.
  infinite={true}
  autoPlay={this.props.deviceType !== "mobile" ? true : false}
  autoPlaySpeed={1000}
  keyBoardControl={true}
  customTransition="all .5"
  transitionDuration={500}
  containerClass="carousel-container"
  removeArrowOnDeviceType={["tablet", "mobile"]}
  deviceType={this.props.deviceType}
  dotListClass="custom-dot-list-style"
  itemClass="carousel-item-padding-40-px"
>
  <div>Item 1</div>
  <div>Item 2</div>
  <div>Item 3</div>
  <div>Item 4</div>
</Carousel>;

Custom Arrows.

You can pass your own custom arrows to make it the way you want, the same for the position. For example, add media query for the arrows to go under when on smaller screens.

You custom arrows will receive a list of props/state that's passed back by the carousel such as the currentSide, is dragging or swiping in progress.

An Example

Code

const CustomRightArrow = ({ onClick, ...rest }) => {
  const {
    onMove,
    state: { currentSlide, deviceType },
  } = rest;
  // onMove means if dragging or swiping in progress.
  return <button onClick={() => onClick()} />;
};
<Carousel customRightArrow={<CustomRightArrow />} />;

Custom button group.

This is very useful if you don't want the dots, or arrows and you want to fully customize the control functionality and styling yourself.

Example

Code

const ButtonGroup = ({ next, previous, goToSlide ...rest }) => {
  const { carouselState: { currentSlide } } = rest;
  return (
    <div className="carousel-button-group"> // remember to give it position:absolute
      <ButtonOne className={currentSlide === 0 : 'disable' : ''} onClick={() => previous()} />
      <ButtonTwo onClick={() => next()} />
      <ButtonThree onClick={() => goToSlide(currentSlide + 1)}> Go to any slide </ButtonThree>
    </div>
  );
};
<Carousel arrows={false} customButtonGroup={<ButtonGroup />}>
  <ItemOne>
  <ItemTwo>
</Carousel>

Custom dots.

You can pass your own custom dots to replace the default one.

Custom dots can also be a copy or an image of your carousel item. See example in this one

The codes for this example

You custom dots will receive a list of props/state that's passed back by the carousel such as the currentSide, is dragging or swiping in progress.

An Example

Code

const CustomDot = ({ onClick, ...rest }) => {
  const { onMove, index, active, carouselState: { currentSlide, deviceType }  } = rest;
  const carouselItems = [<CarouselItem1, CaourselItem2, CarouselItem3];
  // onMove means if dragging or swiping in progress.
  // active is provided by this lib for checking if the item is active or not.
  return (
    <button className={active ? 'active' : 'inactive'} onClick={() => onClick()}>
      {React.Children.toArray(carouselItems)[index]}
    </button>
    )
}
<Carousel showDots customDot={<CustomDot />}>
{carouselItems}
</Carousel>

partialVisbile props.

Shows the next items partially, this is very useful if you want to indicate to the users that this carousel component is swipable, has more items behind it.

This is different from the "centerMode" prop, as it only shows the next items. For the centerMode, it shows both.

An Example.

const responsive = {
  desktop: {
    breakpoint: { max: 3000, min: 1024 },
    items: 3,
    partialVisibilityGutter: 40 // this is needed to tell the amount of px that should be visible.
  },
  tablet: {
    breakpoint: { max: 1024, min: 464 },
    items: 2,
    partialVisibilityGutter: 30 // this is needed to tell the amount of px that should be visible.
  },
  mobile: {
    breakpoint: { max: 464, min: 0 },
    items: 1,
    partialVisibilityGutter: 30 // this is needed to tell the amount of px that should be visible.
  }
}
<Carousel partialVisbile={true} responsive={responsive}>
  <ItemOne />
  <ItemTwo />
</Carousel>

centerMode

Shows the next items and previous items partially.

<Carousel centerMode={true} />

afterChange callback.

This is a callback function that is invoked each time when there has been a sliding.

An Example.

<Carousel
  afterChange={(previousSlide, { currentSlide, onMove }) => {
    doSpeicalThing();
  }}
/>

beforeChange call back

This is a callback function that is invoked each time before a sliding.

An Example.

<Carousel
  beforeChange={(nextSlide, { currentSlide, onMove }) => {
    doSpeicalThing();
  }}
/>

Combine beforeChange and nextChange, real usage.

They are very useful in the following cases:

  • The carousel item is clickable, but you don't want it to be clickable while the user is dragging it or swiping it.
<Carousel
  beforeChange={() => this.setState({ isMoving: true })}
  afterChange={() => this.setState({ isMoving: false })}
>
  <a
    onClick={e => {
      if (this.state.isMoving) {
        e.preventDefault();
      }
    }}
    href="https://w3js.com"
  >
    Click me
  </a>
</Carousel>
  • Preparing for the next slide.
<Carousel beforeChange={nextSlide => this.setState({ nextSlide: nextSlide })}>
  <div>Initial slide</div>
  <div
    onClick={() => {
      if (this.state.nextSlide === 1) {
        doVerySpecialThing();
      }
    }}
  >
    Second slide
  </div>
</Carousel>

focusOnSelect

Go to slide on click and make the slide a current slide.

<Carousel focusOnSelect={true} />

Using ref.

<Carousel ref={(el) => (this.Carousel = el)} arrows={false} responsive={responsive}>
  <ItemOne />
  <ItemTwo />
</Carousel>
<button onClick={() => {
    const nextSlide = this.Carousel.state.currentSlide + 1;
     // this.Carousel.next()
     // this.Carousel.goToSlide(nextSlide)
  }}>Click me</button>

additionalTransfrom Props.

This is very useful when you are fully customizing the control functionality by yourself like this one

Code

For example if you give to your carousel item padding left and padding right 20px. And you have 5 items in total, you might want to do the following:

<Carousel ref={el => (this.Carousel = el)} additionalTransfrom={-20 * 5} /> // it needs to be a negative number
