Carousel component built with React. It is a react port of slick carousel



npm install react-slick


yarn add react-slick

⚠️ Also install slick-carousel for css and font

npm install slick-carousel
@import "~slick-carousel/slick/slick.css";
@import "~slick-carousel/slick/slick-theme.css";

But be aware slick-carousel has a peer-dependancy on jQuery which you, or your colleagues may not like to see in your console output, so you can always grab the CSS from there and convert it into any CSS in JS solution that you might be using.

or add cdn link in your html

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" charset="UTF-8" href="" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="" />



Use CodeSandbox template to try react-slick with different settings.

Starter Kit

Checkout yeoman generator to quickly get started with react-slick.


var React = require('react');
var Slider = require('react-slick');

class SimpleSlider extends React.Component {
  render: function () {
    var settings = {
      dots: true,
      infinite: true,
      speed: 500,
      slidesToShow: 1,
      slidesToScroll: 1
    return (
      <Slider {...settings}>


Props Type Default Value Description Working
accessibility bool true Enable tabbing and arrow key navigation Yes
className string '' CSS class for inner slider div Yes
adaptiveHeight bool false Adjust the slide's height automatically Yes
arrows bool true Yes
nextArrow React Element null React element for next arrow. Example Yes
prevArrow React Element null React element for prev arrow. Example Yes
autoplay bool false Yes
autoplaySpeed int 3000 Delay between each auto scroll (in milliseconds) Yes
centerMode bool false Center current slide Yes
centerPadding '50px'
cssEase 'ease'
customPaging func i => <button>{i + 1}</button> Custom paging templates. Example Yes
dots bool Default Yes
dotsClass string 'slick-dots' CSS class for dots Yes
draggable bool true Enable scrollable via dragging on desktop Yes
easing string 'linear'
fade bool Default Yes
focusOnSelect bool false Go to slide on click Yes
infinite bool true Infinitely wrap around contents Yes
initialSlide int 0 Index of first slide Yes
lazyLoad bool false Load images or render components on demand Yes
pauseOnHover bool true Prevents autoplay while hovering Yes
responsive array null Customize based on breakpoints (detailed explanation below) Yes
rtl bool false Reverses the slide order Yes
slide string 'div'
slidesToShow int 1 Yes Yes
slidesToScroll int 1
speed int 500
swipe bool true
swipeToSlide bool false Enable drag/swpie irrespective of slidesToScroll Yes
touchMove bool true
touchThreshold int 5
variableWidth bool false

init func null componentWillMount callback. () => void Yes
afterChange func Default Index change callback. index => ... Yes
beforeChange func null Index change callback. (oldIndex, newIndex) => ... Yes
slickGoTo int Default Go to the specified slide number

responsive property

Array of objects in the form of { breakpoint: int, settings: { ... } } The breakpoint int is the maxWidth so the settings will be applied when resolution is below this value. Breakpoints in the array should be ordered from smallest to greatest. Use 'unslick' in place of the settings object to disable rendering the carousel at that breakpoint. Example: [ { breakpoint: 768, settings: { slidesToShow: 3 } }, { breakpoint: 1024, settings: { slidesToShow: 5 } }, { breakpoint: 100000, settings: 'unslick' } ]


  • slickNext() - function called to change current slide on next slide (Example)
  • slickPrev() - function called to change current slide on previous slide (Example)
  • slickGoTo(slideNumber) - function called to change current slide to given slide number (Example)
  • slickPause() - function called to pause a slider that is autoplaying
  • slickPlay() - function called to resume a paused slider (requires autoplay: true)

Custom next/prev arrows

To customize the next/prev arrow elements, simply create new React components and set them as the values of nextArrow and prevArrow.

class LeftNavButton extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return <button {...this.props}>Next</button>

Important: be sure that you pass your component's props to your clickable element like the example above. If you don't, your custom component won't trigger the click handler.

You can also set onClick={this.props.onClick} if you only want to set the click handler.

Flexbox support

If you have flex property on container div of slider, add below css

* {
  min-height: 0;
  min-width: 0;

Test Setup

If you try to run tests with jest in a project that uses react-slick, you may run into this error

matchMedia not present, legacy browsers require a polyfill

To fix this issue add below snippet in test-setup.js

window.matchMedia = window.matchMedia || function() {
    return {
        matches : false,
        addListener : function() {},
        removeListener: function() {}

and add below jest config in package.json

"jest": {
    "setupFiles": ["test-setup.js"]


Want to run demos locally

git clone
cd react-slick
npm install
npm start
open http://localhost:8080

Polyfills for old IE support

matchMedia support from media-match
