jCarouselLite - Project

Update: Version 1.1 is out ! - Sept, 2014

jCarousel Lite is a jQuery plugin that carries you on a carousel ride filled with images and HTML content. Put simply, you can navigate images and/or HTML in a carousel-style widget. It is super light weight, at about 2 KB, yet very flexible and customizable to fit most of our needs.

Did I mention that it weighs just 2 KB?

As if that wasn't enough, the best part is yet to come... You don't need any special CSS file or class name to get this to work. Include the JS file. Supply the HTML markup - div enclosing an ul. Then, construct the carousel with just a simple function call. It is all explained in the installation section. Don't forget to check out the demo for more details or just download now and play with it.

This demo is just a teaser. Try clicking on the « and » buttons. Demos for all possible configurations can be found in the menu towards your right ------->

Thanks for dropping by.

Why? - We have other carousel plugins

Ofcourse you do, and yes, there are many great carousel plugins out there. They offer a host of features and many are so customizable that you are limited only by your imagination.

jCarousel Lite is not a replacement for those heavy-weight plugins; rather it is a light-weight alternative for users (like me) whose primary focus is not to build a full-blown image gallery. For instance, my use-case needed a very simple carousel widget that was going to sit in one corner of the screen. Not much customizations were needed. I figured that other carousels, with all its options and weight was overkill. So, I started developing my own light-weight carousel. Thanks to all of you developers, jCarouselLite is being used by hundreds of thousands of developers today.

Ok. Sold! How do I proceed?
