Usage

Swipe only needs to follow a simple pattern. Here is an example:

Above is the initial required structure– a series of elements wrapped in two containers. Place any content you want within the items. The containing div will need to be passed to the Swipe function like so:

window.mySwipe = Swipe(document.getElementById('slider'));

I always place this at the bottom of the page, externally, to verify the page is ready.

Also Swipe needs just a few styles added to your stylesheet:

.swipe {
  overflow: hidden;
  visibility: hidden;
  position: relative;
}
.swipe-wrap {
  overflow: hidden;
  position: relative;
}
.swipe-wrap > div {
  float:left;
  width:100%;
  position: relative;
}

Config Options

Swipe can take an optional second parameter– an object of key/value settings:

  • startSlide Integer (default:0) - index position Swipe should start at

  • speed Integer (default:300) - speed of prev and next transitions in milliseconds.

  • auto Integer - begin with auto slideshow (time in milliseconds between slides)

  • continuous Boolean (default:true) - create an infinite feel with no endpoints

  • disableScroll Boolean (default:false) - stop any touches on this container from scrolling the page

  • stopPropagation Boolean (default:false) - stop event propagation

  • callback Function - runs at slide change.

  • transitionEnd Function - runs at the end slide transition.

Example

window.mySwipe = new Swipe(document.getElementById('slider'), {
  startSlide: 2,
  speed: 400,
  auto: 3000,
  continuous: true,
  disableScroll: false,
  stopPropagation: false,
  callback: function(index, elem) {},
  transitionEnd: function(index, elem) {}
});

Swipe API

Swipe exposes a few functions that can be useful for script control of your slider.

prev()
slide to prev

next()
slide to next

getPos()
returns current slide index position

getNumSlides()
returns the total amount of slides

slide(index, duration)
slide to set index position (duration: speed of transition in milliseconds)

Browser Support

Swipe is now compatible with all browsers, including IE7+. Swipe works best on devices that support CSS transforms and touch, but can be used without these as well. A few helper methods determine touch and CSS transition support and choose the proper animation methods accordingly.
