Swiper is the most modern free mobile touch slider with hardware accelerated transitions and amazing native behavior. It is intended to be used in mobile websites, mobile web apps, and mobile native/hybrid apps.
Swiper is not compatible with all platforms, it is a modern touch slider which is focused only on modern apps/platforms to bring the best experience and simplicity.
By default, Swiper provides 1:1 touch movement interaction, but this ratio can be configured through Swiper settings
Swiper has an option to enable Mutation Observer, with this feature Swiper will be automatically reinitialized and recalculate all required parameters if you make dynamic changes to the DOM, or in Swiper styles itself
Swiper comes with a very rich API. It allows creating your own pagination, navigation buttons, parallax effects and many more
Swiper is the only slider that provides 100% RTL support with correct layout
Swiper allows a multiple row slides layout, with a few slides per column
There are 3 new transition effects in addition to the usual Slide: Fade, 3D Cube and 3D Coverflow
Now Swiper may be used as controller for any number of other Swipers, and even be controlled at the same time
Swiper comes with all required built-in navigation elements, such as Pagination, Navigation arrows and Scrollbar
Swiper uses modern flexbox layout for slides layout, which solves a lot of problems and time with size caclulations. Such layout also allows configuring the Slides grid using pure CSS
Swiper has a lot of parameters on initialization to make it as flexible as possible. You can control slides per view, per column, per group, space between slides, and many more
Swiper supports modern parallax transition effects that can be used on any element inside of Swiper: images, text blocks, headings, backgrounds, etc.
Swiper Lazy Loading delays loading of images in inactive/invisible slides until the user swipes to them. Such feature could make the page load faster and improve Swiper performance
Swiper 4 comes with new Virtual Slides features which is great when you have a lot of slides or content-heavy/image-heavy slides so it will keep just the required amount of slides in DOM
