A Bootstrap Love Affair, Part Three

Jump on the Bootstrap Carousel.

jan jorgensenWritten by Jan Jorgensen


During the last couple of months, I have taken you around a part of the Bootstrap universe and hopefully covered enough of the elements and methods to give you an idea of what you, together with jQuery, can accomplish with it. My Aim Is True!



In the previous article, I promised you that I would combine all of what we have seen so far and, on top of that, give you some information about my lifelong passion for Elvis Costello, so that’s what I will try to do. In this article of our Bootstrap series, I’ll look at the Bootstrap Carousel plugin, which is a component for cycling through elements, like a carousel or slideshow.
