Ken Wheeler is announcing that Slick with version number 1.5.6 is already available to download.
What is Slick ?
Slick is A fully-customizable, mobile optimized, responsive, and open source jQuery plugin for building carousels, sliders, slideshows, rotators, or whatever you may want to call them .
As all UI and UX experts might tell you, there’s no actual value in having a slider or carousel on your website. It’s actually the other way around. The slideshows helps break the user’s focus from more important site controls, it’s pretty heavy, and slows down page load times, a crucial factor for the site’s SEO ranking.Unfortunately almost all clients love them, and since developers get paid and make a living by the customer’s taste and whims, carousels are a main-stay in today’s Web development market.But that doesn’t mean you got to randomly pull slider plugins off the Internet and embed them in your site’s code. You got to closely analyze their features and make the best decision based on that.The Slick jQuery plugin is quite a new carousel slider on the slideshow market, packed with lots of features, yet fully responsive and mobile-ready.The plugin uses CSS 3 for transitions whenever they’re supported, and falls back on jQuery animations where they’re not.All the basic features are included, along with the proper documentation and examples to get you started on using the plugin.Other features like support for responsive layouts, navigational controls, autoplay, callbacks, infinite loops, customizable breakpoints, and so on, are also included and easy to modify, even without delving too much in the documentation.
