Polymer element for displaying slides in a carousel. Have a quick look at the Component page


Install with bower

First you need bower, see their site for details

bower install --save l2t-paper-slider


Each slide must be within a paper-slide tag, but other than that you have complete control.


There is also auto progression and slide duration for how long it should remain on one slide

  <l2t-paper-slider auto-progress slide-duration="2">

You can set a different default start position, the first start postion is 0 (as opposed to 1)

  <l2t-paper-slider position="1">
