🤓 Future Improvements

If I had more time, I could think about making the following things better:

  • Adding swipe gestures for devices you can touch.
  • Making the transitions between pictures smoother for a nicer experience.
  • Putting in options to change how the picture slideshow works, like how fast pictures change and if they change by themselves.
  • Adding e2e tests to double-check that the image carousel works perfectly in all situations and is super reliable. These tests will make sure the carousel does what it's supposed to do without any problems.
