Mobile Slider: Swipe JS

Swipe JS is a lightweight mobile slider (3.7kb minified) with 1:1 touch movement, resistant bounds, scroll prevention, and completely library agnostic. (sliding content based on exact touch position).

Swipe brings content sliding to the mobile web to preserve space and allow for new types of interaction. Many mobile web sliders currently exist but few embody all the rules a slider like this should follow.


1:1 touch movement

1:1 movement, as described above, is about tracking the position of the touch and moving the content exactly how the touch interacts. This interaction is very common in native apps.

Resistant bounds

When Swipe is at the left-most position, sliding any more left will increase the resistance to slide, making it obvious that you have reached the end. This detection/resistance occurs at both left and right bounds.

Rotation/resize adjustment

When a user rotates their device (in turn resizing the browser window), the slider resets to make sure the sliding elements are the right size. This is only necessary for sliders without declared widths.

Variable width containers

Swipe allows you to set a width to the container, which designates the width of each slide element. This is important if you do not want a full width slider (the default).

Scroll prevention

Scroll prevention is one of the most overlooked pieces of mobile sliders. Swipe detects if you’re trying to scroll down the page or slide content left to right.

Library agnostic

Swipe doesn’t rely on any library. Trust me this is a good thing. All you have to do is pass in the container element, set some parameters, and BOOM goes the dynamite– you’re all set. You may choose to pass the element to Swipe with a library, but it’s not necessary.

Swipe is a standalone slider which doesn’t rely on any JavaScript library and has few configuration options like:

  • the slide to be displayed on initial load
  • speed of transitions
  • auto slideshow to be on/off
  • and callback fired after successfully displaying a slide

Also, it has API methods for custom interactions including the display of prev-next items and getting the current position.

Compatibility: All Modern Touch-Enabled Devices
