If you are familiar with
css and a little
A slider stack (Splider) based on this code is available (from Shaking the Habitual) but there is an alternative (and a more powerful, flexible!) way to incorporate this great slider into Rapidweaver.....
If you are new to dealing with code then there is an alternative approach. Over on the RapidWeaver Academy we have a full video course dedicated to setting up Splide sliders in RapidWeaver. We cover all of the following areas:
This really is a great introduction into adding code to RapidWeaver. Not only that you will end up with quite possibly the most powerful, flexible and lightweight slider in your whole stacks collection!
Below are some example sliders built in RapidWeaver using this library. Many more examples are available on the Splide web page (all of which can easily be replicated once you know how!).
Default settings used.

A 'live' version of this approach is used for the Examples slider on the Source home page.
Obviously, initially at least, it would be easier for you if I simply made this into a stack and sold it to you. However, besides a very short initial learning curve there are a lot of advantages to you for going with an approach such as this. The following tables attempt to highlight some of these.
It is quicker to add / edit settings to control the slider directly in code as opposed to via stack settings
Using raw code is much faster than using stacks (as no stack's settings / logic needs to be processed when previewing / publishing).
Stacks have to limit what options are included. Not so when you do it yourself!
This course costs less than what a stack based on this library would likely cost. And it's more powerful. A no brainer!!
Once you know how to incorporate code like this you can do the same thing with other code (or on other platforms outside of RW!).
Initially it takes a bit more work to set up the files etc than simply dragging a stack onto a page
Dealing with code may be intimidating for beginners but you will soon see that everything is very logical and it will soon make sense
If this approach sounds good to you and you fancy flexing your coding skills a little then sign up now and we'll see you in the RapidWeaver Academy. You'll be adding amazing sliders like this into your RapidWeaver projects in no time!!
