VTEX Slider-Layout

Slider-Layout is a flexible solution for building sliders of blocks within VTEX IO Store Framework.

Blocks API

The API for slider-layout is very permissive, similar to the flex-layout interface:

"slider-layout": {
  "component": "SliderLayout",
  "composition": "children",
  "allowed": "*"

Notice that you could use any array of blocks as children, given that they are allowed by the block that is directly above your slider-layout.


This props should be edited at your theme's blocks.json:

Prop nameTypeDescriptionDefault value
labelStringAria label to be used by the <Slider /> component.'slider'
showNavigationArrowsmobileOnly|desktopOnly|always|neverControls when should navigation arrows be rendered.'always'
showPaginationDotsmobileOnly|desktopOnly|always|neverControls when should pagination dots be rendered.'always'
infiniteBooleanControls if the slider should or should not be infinite.false
navigationStepNumber|'page'How many slides should be slid when the user navigates. When set to 'page', the number of slides that will slide is equal to the number of slides in a page of the slider.'page'
usePaginationBooleanToggles whether or not to use a fluid scroll for navigation, disabling the notion of a "page".true
itemsPerPage{ destop: Number, tablet: Number, phone: Number }Controls how many slides should be shown on each type of device.{ destop: 5, tablet: 3, phone: 1 }
slideTransition{ speed: Number, delay: Number, timing: String }Controls the transition animation between slides.{ speed: 400, delay: 0, timing: '' }
autoplay{ timeout: Number, stopOnHover: Boolean }Controls the autoplay feature.undefined

Styles API

This app provides some CSS classes as an API for style customization.

To use this CSS API, you must add the styles builder and create an app styling CSS file.

  1. Add the styles builder to your manifest.json:
"builders": {
  "styles": "1.x"
  1. Create a file called vtex.slider-layout.css inside the styles/css folder. Add your custom styles:
.slide {
  margin-top: 10px;
