    Flickity works with a container element and a set of child cell elements

    <div class="carousel">
      <div class="carousel-cell">...</div>
      <div class="carousel-cell">...</div>
      <div class="carousel-cell">...</div>


    var flky = new Flickity( '.gallery', {
      // options, defaults listed
      accessibility: true,
      // enable keyboard navigation, pressing left & right keys
      adaptiveHeight: false,
      // set carousel height to the selected slide
      autoPlay: false,
      // advances to the next cell
      // if true, default is 3 seconds
      // or set time between advances in milliseconds
      // i.e. `autoPlay: 1000` will advance every 1 second
      cellAlign: 'center',
      // alignment of cells, 'center', 'left', or 'right'
      // or a decimal 0-1, 0 is beginning (left) of container, 1 is end (right)
      cellSelector: undefined,
      // specify selector for cell elements
      contain: false,
      // will contain cells to container
      // so no excess scroll at beginning or end
      // has no effect if wrapAround is enabled
      draggable: '>1',
      // enables dragging & flicking
      // if at least 2 cells
      dragThreshold: 3,
      // number of pixels a user must scroll horizontally to start dragging
      // increase to allow more room for vertical scroll for touch devices
      freeScroll: false,
      // enables content to be freely scrolled and flicked
      // without aligning cells
      friction: 0.2,
      // smaller number = easier to flick farther
      groupCells: false,
      // group cells together in slides
      initialIndex: 0,
      // zero-based index of the initial selected cell
      lazyLoad: true,
      // enable lazy-loading images
      // set img data-flickity-lazyload="src.jpg"
      // set to number to load images adjacent cells
      percentPosition: true,
      // sets positioning in percent values, rather than pixels
      // Enable if items have percent widths
      // Disable if items have pixel widths, like images
      prevNextButtons: true,
      // creates and enables buttons to click to previous & next cells
      pageDots: true,
      // create and enable page dots
      resize: true,
      // listens to window resize events to adjust size & positions
      rightToLeft: false,
      // enables right-to-left layout
      setGallerySize: true,
      // sets the height of gallery
      // disable if gallery already has height set with CSS
      watchCSS: false,
      // watches the content of :after of the element
      // activates if #element:after { content: 'flickity' }
      wrapAround: false
      // at end of cells, wraps-around to first for infinite scrolling
