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:

// Probably in app/javascript/controllers/index.js

import { Application } from '@hotwired/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 file:

// In your application.js (for example)
import 'swiper/css/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:

<div data-controller="carousel" class="swiper-container" 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>

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.
