A flexible and responsive carousel component for react.

Why do we need yet another carousel component?

  • Element resize support (true responsiveness)
    Most of the carousel components are responsive to the viewport size, but this is not a real responsive support as we can have an element with a width:500px on a 1200px screen, most carousel component will "think" we are on a 1200px mode because they "watch" the view-port's size and not the wrapping element's size.
    This is the reason why react-eleastic-carousel is using the resize-observer which gives us a true responsive support, not matter on what screen size we are.

  • RTL (right-to-left) support
    Supporting right-to-left languages requires a full support for right-to-left rendering and animations which is not supported in most of the carousel components out there. also, right-to-left support is important and should be a standard for most applications.


npm install --save react-elastic-carousel


import React, { Component } from 'react';
import Carousel from 'react-elastic-carousel';

class App extends Component {
  state = {
    items: [
      {id: 1, title: 'item #1'},
      {id: 2, title: 'item #2'},
      {id: 3, title: 'item #3'},
      {id: 4, title: 'item #4'},
      {id: 5, title: 'item #5'}

  render () {
    const { items } = this.state;
    return (
        { => <div key={}>{item.title}</div>)}
