45+ Very Functional Javascript Sliders and Scrollers


Every web developer needs to use Javascript in creating web applications, and when it comes to displaying multiple items on a page with a focus on a single item, sliders and scrollers come in handy. You can use Javascript sliders and scrollers with news, images or products to display data in an organized and user friendly way. In this article, I compiled a list of 46 very functional Javascript sliders and scrollers for you to use in developing web applications.


Cluster has a great solution to fit the large bold text. They’re using a slider in their banner area by making the image full width and place the large bold text to fit in. When text & images slide, they attract your attention. You focus only on the text. like what they are saying on the banner. This is great when you are promoting some products. Launch it by  just throwing some catchy headlines.


Of course, there are many various solutions in the list as well. Implementing large backgrounds, zooming images, optimizing them for retina displays, responsive/mobile friendly, using videos in your galleries – you’ll find it all below.

    These are great the best on that I have seen is from fancybox. Lots of clear examples and is well like by the internet community. However, it can be a little tricky to setup at first.

    It’s a great collection of javascript sliders and scrollers, but maybe you could include Galleriffic too, a free jQuery plugin that provides a rich, post-back free experience optimized to handle high volumes of photos while conserving bandwidth.
