Stimulus Carousel

A Stimulus controller to deal with carousel.

This controller is using Swiper behind the scene.


$ yarn add stimulus-carousel

And use it in your JS file:

import { Application } from "stimulus"
import Carousel from "stimulus-carousel"

const application = Application.start()
application.register("carousel", Carousel)

πŸ‘€ Demo

See Demo

Before starting

You must import the Swiper CSS in your js or in your sass:

// In your application.js (for example)
import 'swiper/swiper-bundle.min.css'

// Or in your sass
@import "~swiper/swiper-bundle"


Basic usage:

<div data-controller="carousel" class="swiper-container">
  <div class="swiper-wrapper">
    <div class="swiper-slide">Slide 1</div>
    <div class="swiper-slide">Slide 2</div>
    <div class="swiper-slide">Slide 3</div>

With options:

  data-carousel-options-value='{"direction": "vertical"}'
  <div class="swiper-wrapper">
    <div class="swiper-slide">Slide 1</div>
    <div class="swiper-slide">Slide 2</div>
    <div class="swiper-slide">Slide 3</div>

πŸ›  Configuration

Attribute Default Description Optional
data-carousel-options-value {} Options for lightgallery.js as JSON string. βœ…

πŸŽ› Extending Controller

You can use inheritance to extend the functionality of any Stimulus component:

import Carousel from "stimulus-carousel"

export default class extends Carousel {
  connect() {
    console.log("Do what you want here.")

    // The swiper instance.

    // Default options for every carousels.

  // You can set default options in this getter.
  get defaultOptions () {
    return {
      // Your default options here

This controller will automatically have access to targets defined in the parent class.

If you override the connect, disconnect or any other methods from the parent, you’ll want to call super.method() to make sure the parent functionality is executed.
