Carousel Slider in React using react-slick

Today we’ll show you how to implement a carousel slider in react using react-slick. It’s very easy to implement in a react project. As we are using the react-slick npm package to create a responsive carousel slider that you can use as a product slider or full screen banner slider as well.

In this article, we will show you how to configure a responsive slider for div based content or just images. Basically we are using the NPM package and the custom CSS to design the slider.

Steps to implement carousel slider

  1. Create react application
  2. Install npm packages for slider
  3. Implement carousel slider
  4. Enable center mode
  5. Output

1. Create react application

To begin the example, let’s create a sample react application where we can implement a responsive carousel slider.

Refer to the link: Create React Application

2. Install npm packages for slider

In the second step, we have to install the react-slick npm package to add a slider in react application.

Run the following command to install package.

Also we need to install the dependency for css and fonts.

3. Implement carousel slider

First, we have to import the react-slick and css by adding the following code.

Now we need to use some configuration for the slider. It’s optional, if you want then you can ignore it for a full screen slider.

Check out here for more information about the slider configuration.

Let’s use the products array for example to display as a card in a slider.

Use the below HTML to render a slider with the help of the products array.

To design a product card use below css.

After successful configuration, you can see the below output in your browser.

You have to add two more settings in your configuration to enable center mode.

After updating the configuration, your output should look like below.

So at last, we will implement the above both configurations in single file using React Hooks and also we will use a checkbox field that helps us to switch between two settings.
