🎠 Image Carousel
This project demonstrates a responsive image carousel that displays three images in a slideshow format. The carousel transitions automatically every three seconds and allows manual navigation between images.
Clone the repository to your local machine using:
git clone https://github.com/mirayatech/image-carousel-test.git
Navigate to the project directory:
Install the required dependencies:
Start the development server:
- Displays three images in a slideshow format.
- Transitions automatically between images every three seconds.
- Allows manual navigation to the next or previous image.
- Implements an infinite loop so that after reaching the last image, the carousel starts again with the first image.
- Provides a reusable carousel component that supports independent instances.
- Fetches images from a provided API (https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/albums/1/photos).
- Open the web application in your browser after starting the development server.
- You will see two carousels side by side, each displaying three random images.
- The carousels transition automatically every three seconds.
- Use the “Previous” and “Next” buttons to navigate manually between images.
- Indicator dots below the carousel indicate the current image index. These dots are equipped with ARIA attributes for enhanced accessibility.
🤓 Future Improvements
If I had more time, I could think about making the following things better:
- Adding swipe gestures for devices you can touch.
- Making the transitions between pictures smoother for a nicer experience.
- Putting in options to change how the picture slideshow works, like how fast pictures change and if they change by themselves.
- Adding e2e tests to double-check that the image carousel works perfectly in all situations and is super reliable. These tests will make sure the carousel does what it’s supposed to do without any problems.
