    Looking for old documentation? Wiki contains archived documentation of Glide.js in version ^2.0.0.


    Glide.js is an open source project licensed under the MIT license. It's completely free to use. However, it would be great if you buy me a cup of coffee once in a while to keep me awake :)

    Getting started

    Pull-in a latest version with NPM ...

    npm install @glidejs/glide

    ... provide <link> to the required core stylesheet. You can also optionally add an included theme stylesheet ...

    <!-- Required Core stylesheet -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="node_modules/@glidejs/glide/dist/css/glide.core.min.css">
    <!-- Optional Theme stylesheet -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="node_modules/@glidejs/glide/dist/css/glide.theme.min.css">

    ... then, prepare a little bit of necessary markup ...

    <div class="glide">
      <div data-glide-el="track" class="glide__track">
        <ul class="glide__slides">
          <li class="glide__slide"></li>
          <li class="glide__slide"></li>
          <li class="glide__slide"></li>

    ... and finally, initialize and mount a Glide.

    import Glide from '@glidejs/glide'
    new Glide('.glide').mount()

    Need a few selected modules? Import and mount only what you need.

    import Glide, { Controls, Breakpoints } from '@glidejs/glide/dist/glide.modular.esm'
    new Glide('.glide').mount({ Controls, Breakpoints })


    The issue channel is especially for improvement proposals and bug reporting. If you have implementing problems, please write on StackOverflow with glidejs tag.
