Lof JSliderNews jQuery Plugin - Now with RTL Support

I've received a request asking to add RTL support to a jQuery slider plugin called Lof JSliderNews Plugin . Adding the RTL support was so simple and easy. Here's how it went:

1. Adding the rtloption

First thing I did is adding the rtl option to the settings object of the plugin.

this.settings = {
	direction : '',
	mainItemSelector  : 'li',
	navInnerSelector	: 'ul',
	navSelector : 'li' ,
	navigatorEvent : 'click'/* click|mouseenter */,
	wapperSelector:  '.sliders-wrap-inner',
	interval : 5000,
	auto  : false, // whether to automatic play the slideshow
	maxItemDisplay	 : 3,
	startItem : 0,
	navPosition : 'vertical',/* values: horizontal|vertical*/ 
	navigatorHeight	 : 100,
	navigatorWidth : 310,
	duration : 600,
	navItemsSelector : '.navigator-wrap-inner li',
	navOuterSelector  : '.navigator-wrapper' ,
	isPreloaded : true,
	easing : 'easeInOutQuad',
	onPlaySlider:function(obj, slider){},
	onComplete:function(slider, index){  }
	,rtl:false
}	

This will make you turn on the RTL mode when initializing the plugin:

 $('#jslidernews1').lofJSidernews( { rtl:true} );	

2. Update the Plugin's JavaScript

Scan the plugin's JS for any "directional" statements and flip them based on the rtl setting. This plugin had only 3:
1.

this.wrapper.css({'left':'-'+this.currentNo*this.maxSize+'px', 'width':( this.maxWidth ) * this.slides.length } );

...will be:

if(this.settings.rtl)
	this.wrapper.css({'right':'-'+this.currentNo*this.maxSize+'px', 'width':( this.maxWidth ) * this.slides.length } );
else
	this.wrapper.css({'left':'-'+this.currentNo*this.maxSize+'px', 'width':( this.maxWidth ) * this.slides.length } );

2.

return ['left', this.settings.navigatorWidth];

...will be:

if(this.settings.rtl)
	return ['right', this.settings.navigatorWidth];
else
	return ['left', this.settings.navigatorWidth];

3.

return ['left','width'];

...will be:

if(this.settings.rtl)
	return ['right','width'];
else
	return ['left','width'];

3. RTL the CSS

The CSS is really simply and most of it is "design/style" related. I've created -rtl.css files that flipped the directional CSS rules in each one. For example, in style1.css, the slider layout section will be in the style1-rtl.css file:

/* slider layout */
.lof-slidecontent .preload{	left:auto;	right:0;	}
.lof-slidecontent  ul.sliders-wrap-inner li{float:right;}
.lof-slidecontent  .lof-opacity  li{left:auto;	right:0; }
.lof-slidecontent  .navigator-content { right:auto; left:10px;}
.lof-slidecontent  .navigator-wrapper{float:right}
.lof-slidecontent  ul.navigator-wrap-inner li{ margin-right:0px;float:right;}

4. Enabling the RTL mode

We'll make use of the changes we made by :

  1. Linking the new RTLed CSS files:

    
    
    
    
    
  2. Enabling the rtl option in the initialization code:

    $('#jslidernews1').lofJSidernews( { interval : 4000,
    						direction	: 'opacitys',	
    						easing: 'easeInOutExpo',
    						duration: 1200,
    						auto	: true,
    						maxItemDisplay  : 4,
    						navPosition  : 'horizontal', // horizontal
    						navigatorHeight : 32,
    						navigatorWidth  : 80,
    						mainWidth	: 980,
    						buttons	: buttons 
    						,rtl:true} );	
    						});
    
  3. 5. Enjoy =)
