Framework Integration

Blaze Slider is framework agnostic, all it requires is the DOM element on which you want to initialize the slider and configuration object.

All Frameworks provide a way to get the underlying DOM element once the framework has rendered the component.

Such as:

You can use this API to get the reference to the DOM element and then initialize the slider with BlazeSlider constructor


You must make sure that you don't initialize the BlazeSlider on the same element more than once!

Example: React

In React, you can create a custom hook to integrate blaze-slider with react in a reusable way.

import React from 'react'
import BlazeSlider from 'blaze-slider'

function useBlazeSlider(config) {
const sliderRef = React.useRef()
const elRef = React.useRef()

React.useEffect(() => {
// if not already initialized
if (!sliderRef.current) {
sliderRef.current = new BlazeSlider(elRef.current, config)
}, [])

return elRef

The above function is also available on NPM via react-blaze-react package. You can use this package if you like, or create a custom hook or component - whatever you prefer.

Usage in React Components

function App() {
const elRef = useBlazeSlider({
all: {
slidesToShow: 3,

return (
<div className="blaze-slider" ref={elRef}>
<div className="blaze-container">
<div className="blaze-track-container">
<div className="blaze-track">
<div> 1 </div>
<div> 2 </div>
<div> 3 </div>
<div> 4 </div>
