Simple Carousel using HTML, CSS and JavaScript – Coding Torque

Share your love

Hello Guys! Welcome to Coding Torque. In this blog, I’m going to explain to you how to make a Simple Carousel(Slider) using HTML CSS, and JavaScript. You must create this project if you are a beginner or intermediate-level programmer. Let’s get started 🚀.

Before we start, here are some JavaScript Games you might like to create:

1. Snake Game using JavaScript

2. 2D Bouncing Ball Game using JavaScript

3. Rock Paper Scissor Game using JavaScript

4. Tic Tac Toe Game using JavaScript

5. Whack a Mole Game using JavaScript

I would recommend you don’t just copy and paste the code, just look at the code and type by understanding it.

 

HTML Code 

Starter Template

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">

<head>
    <!-- Required meta tags -->
    <meta charset="utf-8">

    <title>Simple Carousel using HTML CSS and JavaScript - @codingtorque</title>

</html>

Paste the below code in your <body> tag

<div class="slideshow-container">
    <div class="mySlides fade">
        <div class="numbertext">1 / 3</div>
        <img src="../imgs/sea.jpg" style="width:100%">
        <div class="text">River View</div>
    </div>
    <div class="mySlides fade">
        <div class="numbertext">2 / 3</div>
        <img src="../imgs/work.jpg" style="width:100%">
        <div class="text">Work</div>
    </div>
    <div class="mySlides fade">
