Getting started


  • include jQuery (Version >= 1.8.0)
  • include coverflowjs files (css + js)

Your html may look like this:

<div id="coverflow">
    <!-- these children will be part of the coverflow -->
    <div class="something_fancy"></div>
    <img src=".." />
    <picture><source .. /></picture>

<!-- put this in your html header -->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="coverflow.css" />
<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>

<!-- include coverflow after all dependencies-->
<script src="coverflow.min.js"></script>
    $(function() {
		// and kick off

This minimal implementation should already work.

When to use the standalone version

If you are already using jQueryUI, just drop in the standalone version and save a few bytes.

Swipe support

Momentum swipe support is based on external libraries. Officially supported libraries are jQuery mobile and Hammer.js. Drop in any on these libraries and momentum swipe should work.

Simple swipe support with any other library may work - as long as this library is triggering swipeleft / swiperight events.
