Getting Started


Include CSS

First, include two CSS files into your HTML head:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="owlcarousel/owl.carousel.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="owlcarousel/owl.theme.default.min.css">

owl.carousel.css file is required and should be included before any *.js files.

Second owl.theme.default.css file is optional and feel free to edit it. However, it is required if you'd like the default nav controls like dots or next buttons. Inside the source package you can also find SCSS files for easy generation of your own themes.

Include JS

Yep, include jQuery and owl.carousel.min.js into the footer.

<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="owlcarousel/owl.carousel.min.js"></script>


You don't need any special markup. All you need is to wrap your divs(owl works with any type element a/img/span..) inside the container element <div class="owl-carousel">. Class "owl-carousel" is mandatory to apply proper styles that come from owl.carousel.css file. If you want the default nav controls like dots or buttons, you must also include the "owl-theme" class on that same div.

<!-- Set up your HTML -->
<div class="owl-carousel">
  <div> Your Content </div>
  <div> Your Content </div>
  <div> Your Content </div>
  <div> Your Content </div>
  <div> Your Content </div>
  <div> Your Content </div>
  <div> Your Content </div>

Call the plugin

Now call the Owl initializer function and your carousel is ready.
