The slide show is a functionality to create a presentation of a series of images or data. With the help of views, modules, easily we can create slideshow in Drupal.
For creating a slideshow in a drupal8, we need to install 'Views Slideshow' module and appropriate libraries. It helps us to create the slideshow of any content appear in a Views and customizable too. Without the libraries the Slideshow won't work. It only displays the last slide without any transition.
Required libraries are :
https://malsup.github.io/jquery.cycle.all.js http://cherne.net/brian/resources/jquery.hoverIntent.js https://raw.githubusercontent.com/douglascrockford/JSON-js/master/json2.js
Create a /libraries/jquery.cycle/ folder and save these files.
We can also download it from the https://github.com/malsup/cycle. Then Extract the downloaded folder and rename it as 'jquery.cycle' and save it into the /libraries/ of our project folder.
we can use the terminal to save the libraries :
&&mkdir -p libraries/jquery.cycle && cd $_ && wget https://malsup.github.io/jquery.cycle.all.js \ &&mkdir -p ../../libraries/jquery.hoverIntent && cd $_ && wget http://cherne.net/brian/resources/jquery.hoverIntent.js \ && mkdir -p ../../libraries/json2 && cd $_ && wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/douglascrockford/JSON-js/master/json2.js
It requires proper updates too , then just it works splendidly.
Now you can create a block view of a content type with image field and choose the 'Display format' as 'Slideshow', as well as choosing the image style.
Finally, you can add controls for the slideshow including Previous / Next buttons, a counter and a pager.
