Existing slider libraries are not designed with performance in mind. They block the main thread for a long time when initializing a slider which results in poor UX and poor FID metrics for your website.
They also create layout shifts that negatively impact the UX and CLS metric of your website. These libraries don't provide any idiomatic way to reduce the layout shifts.
Blaze slider is built to fix these issues. It can initialize the slider incredibly fast. It initializes the slider 30x faster than the Slick slider, and 15x faster than the Swiper slider.
- The Fastest Slider Library
- Zero layout shifts by providing a CSS config
- Tons of features and fully customizable
- Powerful CSS Media Query-based responsive configuration
- No slide cloning
- Full TypeScript support
- Extremely small bundle size (~2KB)
Blazing Fast Performance 🔥
|Speed Rank||Slider Library||Time to initialize||Speed Comparison|
|2||Glide||12.2 ms||5.8x slower|
|3||Flickity||13.29 ms||6.32x slower|

|5||Slick||60.0 ms||28.5x slower|
Benchmark measures the time taken to create a slider with 10 slides by each slider, which is reported in the above table as "Time to initialize" ( all libraries configured with the same configuration, content and style )
Benchmark is measured on Apple M1 Pro CPU with 6X slowdown on Google Chrome 103
