Bootstrap Carousel Builder


What is it?

Quickly build and style the default Twitter Bootstrap 3 Carousel. Although Bootstraps Carousel already come with a default style, sometimes it is just nice to have a styled slideshow on your site.

Start from the default Twitter Bootstrap style and then just add the slideshow items and styles that will suit your site.

Some features, like gradient, border radius and font icons, might not be available in older browsers.

Along with the default styles, you also have a few extra options, such as:

  • 2 types of indicators styles with multiple positions
  • 7 different caption styles
  • 8 control styles with 3 different icons


In 2 easy steps, you can create 1000's of different style combinations for your Twitter Bootstrap Carousel and then copy the CSS classes to your stylesheet.

  1. Add carousel slides
  2. Select styles
