Data Attribute Settings

In slick 1.4 you can now add settings using the data-slick attribute. These elements get $.slick called on them automatically if the slick-data attr is present.

// on your img tags and leave off the src

and a whole lot more...

Getting Started

Set up your HTML markup.


<div class="your-class">
  <div>your content</div>
  <div>your content</div>
  <div>your content</div>
</div>
				

Move the /slick folder into your project


Add slick.css in your <head>


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="slick/slick.css"/>
// Add the new slick-theme.css if you want the default styling
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="slick/slick-theme.css"/>
				

Add slick.js before your closing <body> tag, after jQuery (requires jQuery 1.7 +)


<script type="text/javascript" src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-migrate-1.2.1.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="slick/slick.min.js"></script>
				

Initialize your slider in your script file or an inline script tag


$(document).ready(function(){
  $('.your-class').slick({
    setting-name: setting-value
  });
});
				

When complete, your HTML should look something like:


<html>
  <head>
  <title>My Now Amazing Webpage</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="slick/slick.css"/>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="slick/slick-theme.css"/>
  </head>
  <body>

  <div class="your-class">
    <div>your content</div>
    <div>your content</div>
    <div>your content</div>
  </div>

  <script type="text/javascript" src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-migrate-1.2.1.min.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="slick/slick.min.js"></script>

  <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function(){
      $('.your-class').slick({
        setting-name: setting-value
      });
    });
  </script>

  </body>
</html>
				

NOTE: I highly recommend putting your initialization script in an external JS file.

Events

In slick 1.4, callback methods have been deprecated and replaced with events. Use them as shown below:


// On swipe event
$('.your-element').on('swipe', function(event, slick, direction){
  console.log(direction);
  // left
});

// On edge hit
$('.your-element').on('edge', function(event, slick, direction){
  console.log('edge was hit')
});

// On before slide change
$('.your-element').on('beforeChange', function(event, slick, currentSlide, nextSlide){
  console.log(nextSlide);
});
        
Event Arguments Description
afterChange slick, currentSlide Fires after slide change
beforeChange slick, currentSlide, nextSlide Fires before slide change
edge slick, direction Fires when an edge is overscrolled in non-infinite mode.
init slick Fires after first initialization.
reInit slick Fires after every re-initialization
setPosition slick Fires after position/size changes
swipe slick, direction Fires after swipe/drag

Methods

Methods are called on slick instances through the slick method itself in version 1.4, see below:


// Add a slide
$('.your-element').slick('slickAdd',"<div></div>");

// Get the current slide
var currentSlide = $('.your-element').slick('slickCurrentSlide');
        

This new syntax allows you to call any internal slick method as well:


// Manually refresh positioning of slick
$('.your-element').slick('setPosition');
        
Method Arguments Description
slickCurrentSlide none Returns the current slide index
slickGoTo int : slide number, boolean: should animate Navigates to a slide by index
