Carousel Complete

Rob Beattie reviews Jeremy’s new carousel and slider stack and finds it very flexible. General Hearty agrees.

Carousel Complete is two stacks in one. First, you get a responsive slideshow with animated captions, second the ability to display photos – and videos – as a responsive carousel. Let’s look at the two setups in turn.

Start by dropping the Slide Container stack onto a Stacks page and then add as many Inner Element stacks as you require for the slideshow. For each slide you can choose from the following ‘themes’ – Content, Image or Video – depending on what the slides are going to contain.

Each slideshow supports 37 different CSS animations for transitions (both slide in and slide out) as well as a subtle fade effect; in addition you can animate your captions using the same palette of transitions. (As always, please use transitions responsibly).

Selecting ‘Captions’ in the HUD opens a new empty stack area on top of the slide into which you can place other stacks. We had really good results with Doobox’ Header X and Elixir’s Flat Button stack to produce simple, elegant calls to action but you can populate the area with all manner of other stacks.

Editorial » Marten Claridge » 28th July 2015

The mind is a funny thing. For a few inglorious seconds I was sorely tempted to name this stack the RippleButtonThing — but fortunately the moment passed and common sense prevailed.

So what’s it all about then? Well, seeing as Google spent billions creating ‘a visual language that synthesizes classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science’, we sane few developers left at RapidWeaver Central decided to come up with our own visual language which we have since trademarked ‘Immaterial Design’.

We firmly believe that this is a giga-trend in the making and even in the unlikely event that we sober up next week and realise it’s nothing but a dodgy dream, we shall persevere in our endeavour because our principles are sound and our philosophy is vague enough to give the impression we know what we’re talking about.

So with little further ado we’d like to introduce RippleButtonThing, our first Immaterial Design button. It will be the first of many, if not two.
