Getting started

Pull-in a latest version with NPM ...

npm install @glidejs/glide

... provide <link> to the required core stylesheet. You can also optionally add an included theme stylesheet ...

<!-- Required Core stylesheet -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="node_modules/@glidejs/glide/dist/css/glide.core.min.css">

<!-- Optional Theme stylesheet -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="node_modules/@glidejs/glide/dist/css/glide.theme.min.css">

... then, prepare a little bit of necessary markup ...

<div class="glide">
  <div data-glide-el="track" class="glide__track">
    <ul class="glide__slides">
      <li class="glide__slide"></li>
      <li class="glide__slide"></li>
      <li class="glide__slide"></li>

... and finally, initialize and mount a Glide.

import Glide from '@glidejs/glide'

new Glide('.glide').mount()

Need a few selected modules? Import and mount only what you need.

import Glide, { Controls, Breakpoints } from '@glidejs/glide/dist/glide.modular.esm'

new Glide('.glide').mount({ Controls, Breakpoints })
