Material Carousel

Build Status npm version Live demo


I no longer use Angular. By not using Angular anymore, it means I no longer use this component, what prevents me from pushing quality commits, doing assertive code reviews and being up-to-date with new Angular releases. I don't do open source for stars, I do to help people, so I don't want people that depend on this component to have a bad support.

That said, for the sake of the community, I suggest you to use this fork instead (thanks gabrielbusarello!). There are a bunch of small issues to be solved and also some major ones but I'm sure someone actively using Angular will handle them with ease.

Thanks for the support and take care!


This package is a carousel component for Angular using Material Design.

Until v1 is reached, breaking changes may be introduced.


npm install --save @ngmodule/material-carousel


import { MatCarouselModule } from '@ngmodule/material-carousel';

  // ...
  imports: [
    // ...
    // ...
export class AppModule {}



import { MatCarousel, MatCarouselComponent } from '@ngmodule/material-carousel';

Size Considerations and Recommendations

By default, maintainAspectRatio is true, which means height is controlled through proportion.

If you want to have a carousel with constant height (regardless of width), you must set maintainAspectRatio to false.

By default, slideHeight is set to 100%, which will not work if the parent element height isn't defined (i.e. relative heights do not work if the parent height is auto). In that case you could pass a valid css string for slideHeight. You can use any valid css height string like 100px or 25vh.

Play around with the demo to see how you can use this carousel with or without explicit parent height.

With parent elements that have height:auto

  • use proportion if you want a carousel that resizes responsively (this is the default configuration).
  • use maintainAspectRatio="false" and a non-percentage slideHeight if you want a fixed height carousel.
  • DO NOT use relative (%) values for slideHeight; the carousel will not render.

With parent elements that have a set height

  • use maintainAspectRatio="false" if you want a fixed height carousel that fills the parent element (slideHeight is 100% by default).
  • DO NOT use maintainAspectRatio="false" and slideHeight (unless slideHeight="100%"); the carousel will not render correctly because the buttons and indicators will be positioned with respect to the parent.
  • DO NOT use proportion; this will lead to gaps or unwanted overflow.


import { MatCarouselSlide, MatCarouselSlideComponent } from '@ngmodule/material-carousel';

image string Image displayed in the slide.
overlayColor string Color of the slide's overlay. '#00000040'
hideOverlay boolean Toggle overlay on/off. false
disabled boolean Skip slide when navigating. false
