I don't use Webflow hosting (nothing against their service... I haven't even tried it)
As a (server admin / exchange host / developer / designer / receptionist / dishwasher)...
I am an end-to-end consultant who runs my own dedicated servers.
I've got 4 servers now that I use exclusively for my clients.
You can use jquery with your Webflow site......
...but accessing the images might be a problem. I might be wrong about this.
Someone who hosts with webflow and uses jquery would better answer this.
I took the jssor code and forked it to my own (it's open source, so as long you credit the original author... you're good).
There are quiet a few examples there as well... take a look.
I liked it because it
- has a ton of transitions
- has the ability to jump directly to an image
- and autoloads
- and allows "folders"
- and is touch friendly
The original jquery code is actually quite small.
When I came across the (fully docucmented) code... I added 12 images which took the line count to about 350. Each images requires 4 lines. (open div / close div / image / thumb)... so 48 lines for the images... which means the actual code is about 300 lines or so (I use lot of line spacing... and as I said... the code is documented).
The code itself contains all the transitions... even if you don't use them.... so I went in and removed all the unneeded transition code (transitions that I didn't want / need) and all the documentation (since I already knew what the code does).
I rewrote a couple sections... resulting in (with 12 images)... 110 lines of code. That's tiny. Very fast to load.
If you rip it apart... you have to be careful with the transition code - as there is quite a bit of math going in there.
Hope this helps.
