Slick Content Element for Neos CMS

This is a ready-to-use implementation of the JavaScript package slick.


Most of the time you have to make small adjustments to a package (e.g., the configuration in Settings.yaml). Because of that, it is important to add the corresponding package to the composer manifest in your theme package. Mostly this is the site package located under Packages/Sites/. To install it correctly, go to your theme package (e.g. Packages/Sites/Foo.Bar) and run following command:

composer require unikka/neos-slick --no-update

The –no-update command prevents the automatic update of the dependencies. After the package was added to your theme composer.json, go back to the root of the Neos installation and run composer update. Your desired package is now installed correctly.

Content editing inside slides


This package uses background images as slides. If you want to use a fixed height for the slider you can use the following CSS to override the defaults:

slick-slide { min-height: <your-slide-height>; }

Disabling / enabling features

The Slide and the Slider element have a few mixins, which you can use to enable/disable and to add/remove a feature.


If you want to disable the autoplay option in the backend, you can do this:

    'Unikka.Slick:Mixin.Autoplay': false

Unikka.Slick:Content.Slider Mixins

Mixin Default value Description
Unikka.Slick:Mixin.Autoplay true Autoplay option
Unikka.Slick:Mixin.SlidesToScroll true How many slides scroll

Unikka.Slick:Mixin.BackgroundImage true Background image for Slide

Fade option

The fade options is disabled by default, because if you enable fade, the “slides to show” option isn’t working. But you can simply enable it like this:

    'Unikka.Slick:Mixin.Fade': true 
    'Unikka.Slick:Mixin.SlidesToShow': false


    # include the theme css file from slick
    theme: true
      # disables autoplay in backend
      disableAutoplay: true
    # breakpoints for the responsive tab
      sm: 576px
      md: 768px
      lg: 992px
      xl: 1200px


We’d love you to contribute to neos-slick. We try to make it as easy as possible.
We are using semantic versioning to have more time to concentrate on important stuff
instead of struggling in the dependency or release hell.

Therefore the first rule is to follow the eslint commit message guideline.
It is really easy if you always commit via yarn commit. Commitizen will guide you.

All PRs will be merged into the master branch. Travis and semantic release will check the commit messages and start
building a new release when the analysis of the latest commits will trigger that.

If you have questions just ping us on Twitter or Github.


The package is based on the Noerdisch/Slick package. We thank the Noerdisch team for
all the efforts. Part of the development has been sponsored by the Danske Folkekirken, we are proud that the Folkekirken is using the slider package and supports open source software.
