ResponsiveSlides.js v1.55

Simple & lightweight responsive slider plugin (in 1kb)

ResponsiveSlides.js is a tiny jQuery plugin that creates a responsive slider using elements inside a container. It has been used on sites like Microsoft's Build 2012 and Gridset App. ResponsiveSLides.js works with wide range of browsers including all IE versions from IE6 and up. It also adds css max-width support for IE6 and other browsers that don't natively support it. Only dependency is jQuery (1.6 and up supported) and that all the images are same size.

Biggest difference to other responsive slider plugins is the file size (1.4kb minified and gzipped) + that this one doesn't try to do everything. Responsive Slides has basically only two different modes: Either it just automatically fades the images, or operates as a responsive image container with pagination and/or navigation to fade between slides.



1. Link files

<script src=""></script>
<script src="responsiveslides.min.js"></script>

2. Add Markup

<ul class="rslides">
  <li><img src="1.jpg" alt=""></li>
  <li><img src="2.jpg" alt=""></li>
  <li><img src="3.jpg" alt=""></li>

3. Add CSS

.rslides {
  position: relative;
  list-style: none;
  overflow: hidden;
  width: 100%;
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;

.rslides li {
  -webkit-backface-visibility: hidden;
  position: absolute;
  display: none;
  width: 100%;
  left: 0;
  top: 0;

.rslides li:first-child {
  position: relative;
  display: block;
  float: left;

.rslides img {
  display: block;
  height: auto;
  float: left;
  width: 100%;
  border: 0;

4. Hook up the slideshow

  $(function() {
