In a previous post I showed you how to  a custom image gallery with slick.js. Today I’ll cover the process of creating an animated, , full-screen with owl.js (or “Owl Carousel”).

As usual, to get an initial idea of what we’ll be building, take a look at the related CodePen demo (check out the larger version for a better experience):

What is Owl Carousel?

Owl.js is a popular jQuery plugin created by David Deutch that lets you build attractive, responsive carousels. To better understand what this plugin can offer you, check out the demos.

Happily enough, it has great browser support, having been tested on the following devices:

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Opera
  • IE7/8/10/11
  • iPad Safari
  • iPod4 Safari
  • Nexus 7 Chrome
  • Galaxy S4
  • Nokia 8s Windows8

For more details take a look at the documentation.

Getting Started With Owl.js

To get started with owl, begin by downloading and installing the following files in your project:

  • jQuery
  • owl.carousel.css or its minified version
  • owl.carousel.js or its minified version

Optionally, you might want to import the owl.theme.default.css file.

You can grab a copy of the corresponding owl files by visiting its Github repo, by using a package manager (e.g. npm), or by loading the necessary assets through a CDN (e.g. cdnjs). For this tutorial, I’ll choose the last option.

For the purposes of this tutorial, beyond the owl files, I’ve also incorporated Babel and Bootstrap 4.

With that in mind, if you look under the Settings tab of our demo pen, you’ll see that I’ve included three external CSS files and two external JavaScript files.

1. The HTML

To kick things off we define a carousel which has three slides. Each of those slides contains a title, a subtitle, and a call-to-action button.

Here’s the required structure for our demo page:
