Coin Slider: Image Slider with Unique Effects
After jqFancyTransitions I decided to release new jQuery image slider plugin with more unique transitions effects. I have ideas for new effects and after I didn’t find that somebody already implement that I create Coin Slider.
Thanks to you and your comments Coin Slider have lot of features that jqFancyTransitions didn’t have at the beginning. Basically it’s a latest (and improved) version of jqFancyTransitions but with new ‘fancy’ transitions effects.
jqFancyTransitions slice your images in stripes, while Coin Slider slice them in squares. And that’s the main difference. With changing order of appearing those squares I achieve random, swirl, rain and straight effects.
While I was working on this I felt like I’m on college again. Creating order of squares appearance remind me on my college projects when I spent few night and days trying to solve some problem. Random and straight was simple, but swirl effect give me some trouble. Fortunately, I’m working with Milos Popovic who like to solve those kind of problems and he help me about swirl function. Kudos to Milos!
For rain effect I spent few rainy hours to built it and that’s why I gave him that name. Naming things is something that I’m not good at.
How to use
Add slider content and create one div with an id and put images and image descriptions, similar to:
<div id='coin-slider'> <a href="img01_url" target="_blank"> <img src='img01.jpg' > <span> Description for img01 </span> </a> ...... ...... <a href="imgN_url"> <img src='imgN.jpg' > <span> Description for imgN </span> </a> </div>
At the end all you have to do is to call Coin Slider:
Coin Slider have a lot of options for helping you set slider as you want. If you want to have 900px wide slider, without navigation and with 5sec delay between images you’ll do this:
List of all options
width: 565, // width of slider panel height: 290, // height of slider panel spw: 7, // squares per width sph: 5, // squares per height delay: 3000, // delay between images in ms sDelay: 30, // delay beetwen squares in ms opacity: 0.7, // opacity of title and navigation titleSpeed: 500, // speed of title appereance in ms effect: '', // random, swirl, rain, straight navigation: true, // prev next and buttons links : true, // show images as links hoverPause: true // pause on hover
Be careuful with spw and sph because large numbers can cause transitions problems.
If you don’t set effect all effects will be implemented by random.
