Bootstrap 5 Carousel

What is Bootstrap Carousel?

Carousel is a slideshow cycling through different elements such as photos, videos, or text.


Installation

Manual installation (zip package)

To take advantage of our Bootstrap images component and use them in your project, you first need to install the MDB 5 Free package


MDB CLI

Watch our Quick Start Tutorial to discover and use the full potential of MDB 5 and MDB CLI


NPM

Prerequisites

Before starting the project make sure to install Node LTS (12.x.x recommended).

Installation

To install MDB UI KIT in your project easily type the following command in the terminal:

npm i mdb-ui-kit 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Importing JS modules

You can import the entire library or just individual modules:

import * as mdb from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // lib
import { Input } from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // module 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Importing CSS file

To import MDB stylesheet please use the following syntax:

@import '~mdb-ui-kit/css/mdb.min.css'; 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Importing SCSS modules

You can also import individual SCSS modules. To do it properly, we recommend to copy them from the node_modules/mdb-ui-kit/src/scss location directly to your project and import in the same way as CSS files.

Webpack integration

You can significantly speed up the process of creating a new project based on Webpack using our Starter.


CDN

Installation via CDN is one of the easiest methods of integrating MDB UI KIT with your project. Just copy the latest compiled JS script tag and CSS link tag from cdnjs to the application.

Don't forget to add also Font Awesome and Roboto font if you need. Here's an example code:

CSS
<!-- Font Awesome -->
<link
  href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/5.15.1/css/all.min.css"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
<!-- Google Fonts -->
<link
  href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:300,400,500,700&display=swap"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
<!-- MDB -->
<link
  href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mdb-ui-kit/3.3.0/mdb.min.css"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
JS
<!-- MDB -->
<script
  type="text/javascript"
  src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mdb-ui-kit/3.3.0/mdb.min.js"
></script>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Slides only

Here’s a carousel with slides only. Note the presence of the .d-block and .w-100 on carousel images to prevent browser default image alignment.

<div id="carouselExampleSlidesOnly" class="carousel slide" data-mdb-ride="carousel">
  <div class="carousel-inner">
    <div class="carousel-item active">
      <img
        src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/new/slides/041.jpg"
        class="d-block w-100"
        alt="..."
      />
    </div>
    <div class="carousel-item">
      <img
        src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/new/slides/042.jpg"
        class="d-block w-100"
        alt="..."
      />
    </div>
