Swiper, no Swiping… Swiper, no….You’re Toooooo Late!

I’ll expand on this post with a specific example in a few days, but I wanted to get a shout out to¬†Vladimir Kharlampidi for his new Swiper library.

It’s a Carousel, it’s an app-store slider, it’s Windows Metro, all in one slick, performant package. It’s new, it’s FREE, and it just works.

It even asks you to Touch it. How lascivious!

There are some bugs and missing API calls ( .index() and .currentSlide() need to be fixed, and you absolutely need to get to the baseSlides when params.loop = true — I’ll prob. submit the pull requests) so if you want to get programmatic you have to do a little bit of landscaping, but it’s competitive with any other HTML slider out there, works 100% with touch, and it’s fast.

Oh, and did I mention it’s FREE?

Check it out, and tell your friends.

  1. Hi, Strack!

    Thanks for your kind words about Swiper) Let me know what you want to improve/add in API or if you found bugs please submit them on GitHub

    If it’s okay with you, and if I get time, I may just do a pull request – Most of my issues are around usage when .loop === true, which I see that you warn about, but still needs to be addressed.

    So, if I get time, I’ll write the code myself. If I don’t, I’ll submit Github requests as you mentioned.

    I used your library today in a demo I did. It went over very very well. Thanks again for your efforts!
