SliderBuilder: Make responsive sliders and carousels online
SliderBuilder is an interactive web-based WYSIWYG editor for creating slideshows, content sliders, and carousels for a website or blog. You manipulate slides, layers, images, and text through a web interface, then either generate HTML code to paste into your site or publish your slider at

Here is a demo of a slider that might advertise a site's recent content. (MetaFilter's content, in this case.)

The backstory: SliderBuilder implements animations through the excellent third-party Jssor Slider package, but the coding required to prepare content for Jssor to process is tedious. The third time I had to make one, I decided there needed to be a better way to construct and edit them. Six weeks (and over 2000 lines of Javascript code) later, there's SliderBuilder, an in-browser creator that doesn't require Flash, Java, or an app download.

The sliders are viewable on mobile, and are responsive by default, but you need a desktop browser to build your own.
