How to Add Owl Carousel Slider in Magento 2 Products

In this tutorial, I am going to explain to you how you can add owl carousel slider in Magento 2. When making the user interface of Magento, it has to be taken care of that how to show more and better content in less space.

Add owl carousel Slider Magento 2

Owl carousel slider is very helpful to have that user interface look good. This slider is most widely used in eCommerce websites.

Magento 2 website owners mostly use the Owl Carousel slider to display various types of products such as new arrival products, most viewed products, more liked products slider, featured product slider, best seller product slider, etc.

 

How to Add Owl Carousel Slider in Magento 2

1) In the first step, we will add

 app/code/Wishusucess/OwlSlider/view/frontend/templates/slider.phtml file
<!--
/**
* Created By : Hemant Kumar Singh Magento 2x Developer
*/
-->
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<div class="carousel-wrap">
<div class="owl-carousel">
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=1"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=2"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=3"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=4"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=5"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=6"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=7"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=8"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=9"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=10"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=11"></div>
<div class="item"><img src="http://wishusucess.com/350x300?text=12"></div>
</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>

 

2) In the second step you have to add this javascript file to your custom extension.

app/code/Wishusucess/OwlSlider/view/frontend/web/js/common.js
/**
* Created By : Hemant Kumar Singh Magento 2x Developer
*/
require(['jquery', 'owlcarousel'], function($) {
$(document).ready(function() {
$('.owl-carousel').owlCarousel({
loop: true,
margin: 10,
nav: true,
navText: [
"<i class='fa fa-caret-left'></i>",
"<i class='fa fa-caret-right'></i>"
],
autoplay: true,
autoplayHoverPause: true,
responsive: {
0: {
items: 1
},
600: {
items: 3
},
1000: {
items: 5
}
}
});
});
});

 

3) Now in the third step you have to add the javascript file in the phtml file so you have to create a file.

app/code/Wishusucess/OwlSlider/view/frontend/owlslider_index_index.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!--
/**
* Created By : Hemant Kumar Singh Magento 2x Developer
*/
-->
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
layout="1column"
xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
<head>
<script src="Wishusucess_OwlSlider::js/common.js" async="async" />
</head>
<body>
<referenceBlock name="content">
<block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template"
name="proslider"
template="Wishusucess_OwlSlider::productslider.phtml" />
</referenceBlock>
</body>
</page>

 

4) In the fourth step we have to add an owl slider

app/code/Wishusucess/OwlSlider/view/frontend/requirejs-config.js
/**
* Created By : Hemant Kumar Singh Magento 2x Developer
*/
var config = {
paths: {
owlcarousel: "Wishusucess_OwlSlider/js/owl.carousel"
},
shim: {
owlcarousel: {
deps: ['jquery']
}
}
};

 

Now in order to make your slider more attractive and beautiful, you can add extra CSS and js files in your Magento 2 custom OwlSlider module’s web folder. We can add this code as per our requirement and can add this slider on any cms page also.

That’s it !!!

You can check the full module here: GitHub

How to Call Owl Slider in Magento2 Related Products

This step will help you to add the Owl Slider in Magento 2.x You just have to follow the below steps.

I assume that you are using a custom Magento 2 theme so here I am taking as an example.

ThemeVender : Wishusucess

ThemeName:   WishusucessTheme

Let's start

If you want to put the slider in the related product on the product details page of Magento 2 then you can follow the steps given below.

This step will help you to add Owl Slider for Related Product in the product detail page.

You need to update

app/design/frontend/Wishusucess/WishusucessTheme/Magento_Theme/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/list/items.phtml

The file to implement OwlCarousel for Related Products.

 

Step 1: Download OwlCarousel from here: Owl Carousel

Please put all OwlCarousel JS files owl.carousel.min.js and owlcarousel.js in this directory

app/design/frontend/Wishusucess/WishusucessTheme/Magento_Catalog/web/js

After that put all OwlCarousel CSS files owl.carousel.css and owl.theme.default.css etc... in this directory

app/design/frontend/Wishusucess/WishusucessTheme/web/css/owlcarousel/assets

 

Step 2: Include OwlCarousel CSS files using default_head_blocks.xml layout XML file.

For that create

app/design/frontend/Wishusucess/WishusucessTheme/Magento_Theme/layout/default_head_blocks.xml

default_head_blocks.xml file code.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!--
/**
* Hemant Kumar Singh Magento 2x Developer
* Website url: http://www.wishusucess.com/
*/
-->
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
<head>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no"/> 
<css src="css/owlcarousel/assets/owl.carousel.min.css" />
<css src="css/owlcarousel/assets/owl.theme.default.min.css" />
</head>
</page>

 

Step 3: Include OwlCarousel JS using requirejs config file.

Now you have to create a file

app/design/frontend/Wishusucess/WishusucessTheme/Magento_Catalog/requirejs-config.js

requirejs-config.js file code.

var config = {
paths: { 
'owlcarousel': "Magento_Catalog/js/owlcarousel"
}, 
shim: {
'owlcarousel': {
deps: ['jquery']
}
}
};

 

Step 4: Update items.phtml File

Copy from

/vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/frontend/templates/product/list/items.phtml

and paste to

app/design/frontend/Wishusucess/WishusucessTheme/Magento_Theme/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/list/items.phtml

Now update the item.phtml file to implement OwlCarousel

Here, I am giving you the items.phtml code, you can just copy and paste.
