var React = require('react');
var Slider = require('react-slick');

var SimpleSlider = React.createClass({
  render: function () {
    var settings = {
      dots: true,
      infinite: true,
      speed: 500,
      slidesToShow: 1,
      slidesToScroll: 1
    return (
      <Slider {...settings}>

initialSlide int which item should be the first to be displayed Yes
lazyLoad bool Loads images or renders components on demands Yes
responsive array Array of objects in the form of { breakpoint: int, settings: { ... } } The breakpoint int is the maxWidth so the settings will be applied when resolution is below this value. Breakpoints in the array should be ordered from smalles to greatest. Use 'unslick' in place of the settings object to disable rendering the carousel at that breakpoint. Example: [ { breakpoint: 768, settings: { slidesToShow: 3 } }, { breakpoint: 1024, settings: { slidesToShow: 5 } }, { breakpoint: 100000, settings: 'unslick' } ] Yes
rtl bool Reverses the slide order Yes

Custom next/prev arrows

To customize the next/prev arrow elements, simply create new React components and set them as the values of nextArrow and prevArrow.

class LeftNavButton extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return <button {...this.props}>Next</button>  

Important: be sure that you pass your component's props to your clickable element like the example above. If you don't, your custom component won't trigger the click handler.

You can also set onClick={this.props.onClick} if you only want to set the click handler.
