Getting started

Install react-coverflow using npm.
$ npm install react-coverflow

The required stylesheet using css-module and include in package(js file), so you don't need include other stylesheet.


import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import Coverflow from 'react-coverflow';

const fn = function () {
  /* do your action */

  <Coverflow width="960" height="500"
      onClick={() => fn()}
      onKeyDown={() => fn()}
        alt='title or description'
          display: 'block',
          width: '100%',
    <img src='image/path' alt='title or description' data-action=""/>
    <img src='image/path' alt='title or description' data-action=""/>


In order to pass functions to the images, you can simply wrap the <img /> in a <div>. You should make sure to give your img specific styling properties to confine it to the parent div.

| Name | Type | Default | Description | |----------------------|-----------|-------------------|----------------------------------------------| | children | node | | should be <img /> nodes | | infiniteScroll | boolean | false | Allows the carousel to scroll from the last image to the (upon clicking the next button) or from the first to the last (by clicking the previous button). infiniteScroll is not supported by mouse scrolling. | | displayQuantityOfSide| number | | The number of display image from center to the one side end.| | navigation | boolean | false | Enable navigation arrows. This will disable image-click navigation. | | enableHeading | boolean | true | Shows the img alt as the label for the img. | | enableScroll | boolean | true | Enable scrolling feature. | | media | object | | To support media query, if you want responsive with parent element you can ignore width and height props or set it to auto. | | active | number | middle child node | The index of the image you want to be active.| | clickable | boolean | true | Makes images clickable, setting to false will disable clickability of images. | | currentFigureScale | number | 1.5 | The scale factor (float) to be applied on the active image. | | otherFigureScale | number | .8 | The scale factor (float) to be applied on the inactive images.|


Now, you can use media props to support responsive design. The syntax part is come form Radium You can reference to this doc.

        '@media (max-width: 900px)': {
          width: '600px',
          height: '300px'
        '@media (min-width: 900px)': {
          width: '960px',
          height: '600px'
      <img src='images/album-1.png' alt='Album one' data-action=""/>
      <img src='images/album-2.png' alt='Album two' data-action=""/>
