20+ Useful jQuery Content Slider Scripts and Tutorials

Maybe you’ve seen some businesses with beautifully designed websites that also have a slider which displays their available products and services; and since then you’ve been asking yourself how it’s done? If you still haven’t found out, then lend me an ear, because here’s the answer. It’s done with jQuery.

So what is jQuery? As you probably know, there’s JavaScript – a scripting language, but Query is just a branch. jQuery is used to make easier the effects and interaction with the development code and works just like JavaScript.

Released in January 2006, it gains popularity pretty quickly as it’s a nice technology that helps making the websites over the internet more interactive and fun. Also it takes less code than with JavaScript to create effects like drop down menus, animations, drag and drop elements and form validation.

jQuery Content Slider for Designers and Developers

So, as it is easy and simple to use, needs less coding and creates interesting and beautiful effects, why not try making a slider with your recent products to put on your website? Here are 20+ of the most useful jQuery content slider scripts and tutorials.

Hope to have inspired at least some of you and soon we will see more sites that are interactive and client oriented, saving space and showcasing their offer into nicely designed sliders.

    Nivo Slider and Slide Deck are the nice sliders included here. However, jQuery Cycle plugin from Malsup is missing here. It has 28 browser effects and offers a lot of customization. I am using for the last three months, found it good.

    A beautiful collection of slider, my compliments!

    The Awkward Showcase seems to be OK for my needs. I have the problem that I need for my home page a slider where y can click on the content and it must happens “somethink”. In comparison with the sliders here I have database content that is generated dynamically. Just text from the database. I will try to modify the Awkward Showcase slider that I can use it.

    Thanks for including SlideDeck! We’re working hard to create a powerful slider that can accommodate virtually any type of content you throw at it, as well as be easy to maintain by your non-technical clients.

    I have created a nice jquery touch enabled slider for iPhone/iPad that mimics the elastic/physics of the native applications. I would love to see it added to this list for variety :).

    Nice post and I would also like to add few awesome jQuery sliders to this collection.
    However, I still think that Nivo is the best, but let’s see if that changes.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for sharing such sliders, I was amazed to see that big websites are using same open source scripts that listed in this post.

    Still shocking for me.
