Steps to Create Responsive Card Slider in HTML & JavaScript

To create a responsive card slider using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (SwiperJS), follow these simple step-by-step instructions:

  • Create a folder with any name you like, e.g., card-slider.
  • Inside it, create the necessary files: index.html, style.css, and script.js.
  • Download the Images folder and put it in your project directory. This folder contains all the images you’ll need for this card slider. Alternatively, you can also use your images.

In your index.html file, add the essential HTML markup with different semantic tags and SwiperJS CDN links to create the card slider layout.

In your script.js file, add JavaScript code to initialize SwiperJS, and make your card slider functional.

const swiper = new Swiper('.slider-wrapper', {
  loop: true,
  grabCursor: true,
  spaceBetween: 30,

  // Pagination bullets
  pagination: {
    el: '.swiper-pagination',
    clickable: true,
    dynamicBullets: true
  },

  // Navigation arrows
  navigation: {
    nextEl: '.swiper-button-next',
    prevEl: '.swiper-button-prev',
  },

  // Responsive breakpoints
  breakpoints: {
    0: {
      slidesPerView: 1
    },
    768: {
      slidesPerView: 2
    },
    1024: {
      slidesPerView: 3
    }
  }
});

That’s it! If you’ve added the code correctly, you’re ready to see your card slider. Open the index.html file in your preferred browser to view the slider in action.
