Tailwind Carousel

Responsive carousel built with Tailwind. Carousel is a slideshow cycling through different elements such as photos, videos, or text.


Installation

Quick Start

In order to start using Tailwind simply download our starter.

DOWNLOAD ZIP STARTER

Tailwind Elements does not change or add any CSS to the already one from TailwindCSS.

You can directly copy our components into your Tailwind design and they will work straight away.

In some dynamic components (like dropdowns or modals) we add Font Awesome icons and custom JavaScript. However, they do not require any additional installation, all the necessary code is always included in the example and copied to any Tailwind project - it will work.
