5 Best jQuery Slider/Carousel

Are you looking for some creative, easy to use jquery slider/carousel plugins for your works, websites? There are a ton of plugins out there and it is hard to choose one. So we have listed some of script here for you to consider.

1. Scattered Polaroids Gallery

A flat-style Polaroid gallery where the items are scattered randomly in a container. When a specific item is selected, it will move to the middle while the other Polaroids will make space for it by moving to the sides. Optionally, an item can have a backface which will be shown by flipping the Polaroid when clicking on the current navigation dot again.

2. Flickity

Flickity is touch friendly, fully responsive, clickable web and mobile galleries for the modern developer. Suitable for creating full scale slideshows and galleries, Flickity’s modern design choices are what keeps developers coming back for more. Full use of HTML5 and CSS3 within this library.

3. gridslide.js

Grid Slide library does what you would expect it to do, it provides the user with an option to display visual content in grid oriented manner. So you can select a number of visual items and showcase them individually in a grid, and the user can then easily select between the grid items to open them up within the slider. We can see this plugin having a lot of use for displaying product demos, for wallpaper websites who want to give its users the full preview of content before they click on it, and creatives who want to display as much of their work within a single page as possible.

4. Simple Multi-Item Slider

The idea was inspired by the Aplle product slider where several little items fly in with a bouncing animation. We wanted to translate this concept to a modern-looking alternative for a minimal online store design where the items represent different categories. Categories as use-case fit quite well because of the limited nature of this type of slider. For more items to be shown, this is certainly a far-from-optimal solution. If the amount of items is limited this might give an interesting little touch to the experience.
