HTMLelements in the slides
Behind the Design
As always, here are some insights from the designer:
FlexSlider serves beginners by being virtually plug and play, needing only the FlexSlider files and some images to get started. To seasoned developers, FlexSlider should be seen as a tool that gets them rolling quickly. It doesn’t add unnecessary markup and gives complete freedom to
use any HTML element within each slide.
The most exciting thing about FlexSlider at this point, in my mind, is the slide animation. It was a challenge to construct, but the resulting responsive behaviour is very cool. When you mix the slide animation with touch gestures, it creates a great experience across iOS and Android devices.
