Create Interactive Carousels with the JavaScript 'Slick' Library

Create and customize interactive carousels using the 'Slick' JavaScript library and the 'htmlwidgets' package. The carousels can contain plots produced in R, images, 'iframes', videos and other 'htmlwidgets'. These carousels can be used directly from the R console, from 'RStudio', in Shiny apps and R Markdown documents.

We are happy to bring the slick JavaScript library to R. It is self described as "the last carousel you'll ever need". This carousel is based on putting the elements of the carousel in a div HTML tag. This makes the carousel very versatile in what can be placed inside. Regular objects that are placed in a carousel can be for example: images, plots, tables, gifs, videos, iframes and even htmlwidgets.

This tool helps review multiple outputs in an efficient manner and saves much needed space in documents and Shiny applications, while creating a user friendly experience.

These carousels can be used directly from the R console, from RStudio, in Shiny apps and R Markdown documents.
