Carousel with gestures support

Mobile - Material Design for Bootstrap

Click on the button below to launch a live example and see the Carousel with a gestures support in action.

Live preview

To make it work, use the code below together with one of MDB carousels.

Note: Remember to set a corresponding ID in both Carousel and script.



        $(document).ready(function () {
          $('#carousel-example-1').hammer().on('swipeleft', function () {
              $(this).carousel('next');
          })
          $('#carousel-example-1').hammer().on('swiperight', function () {
              $(this).carousel('prev');
          })
      });

      

Usage

It’s easy to use, just include the library and create a new instance.



        var hammertime = new Hammer(myElement, myOptions);
        hammertime.on('pan', function(ev) {
          console.log(ev);
        });

      

By default it adds a set of tap, doubletap, press, horizontal pan and swipe, and the multi-touch pinch and rotate recognizers. The pinch and rotate recognizers are disabled by default because they would make the element blocking, but you can enable them by calling:



        hammertime.get('pinch').set({ enable: true });
        hammertime.get('rotate').set({ enable: true });

      

Enabling vertical or all directions for the pan and swipe recognizers:



        hammertime.get('pan').set({ direction: Hammer.DIRECTION_ALL });
        hammertime.get('swipe').set({ direction: Hammer.DIRECTION_VERTICAL });

      

Also the viewport meta tag is recommended, it gives more control back to the webpage by disabling the doubletap/pinch zoom. More recent browsers which support the touch-action property don’t require this.



        <meta name="viewport" content="user-scalable=no, width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1">

      

More control

You can setup your own set of recognizers for your instance. This requires a bit more code, but it gives you more control about the gestures that are being recognized.



          var mc = new Hammer.Manager(myElement, myOptions);

          mc.add( new Hammer.Pan({ direction: Hammer.DIRECTION_ALL, threshold: 0 }) );
          mc.add( new Hammer.Tap({ event: 'quadrupletap', taps: 4 }) );

          mc.on("pan", handlePan);
          mc.on("quadrupletap", handleTaps);


      

The example above creates an instance containing a pan and a quadrupletap gesture. The recognizer instances which you create are being executed in the order they are added, and only one can be recognized at the time.



          hammertime.get('pan').set({ direction: Hammer.DIRECTION_ALL });
          hammertime.get('swipe').set({ direction: Hammer.DIRECTION_VERTICAL });

    'none' means 'this component doesn't require anything except core files'

    A file wrapped by `< >` means that this file make the base component prettier but it isn't necessary for the proper working
