Getting Started with Bootstrap 5 Carousels:

Here's a breakdown of the code's key features and functionality:

HTML Structure:

Basic Structure:

The code creates a basic HTML structure with a heading "New Arrivals" and a container for cards (con-cards-1).

Card Template:

Defines a template for individual product cards using a JavaScript function (template(index)).

Each card contains:

  • Star icon for favorites
  • Product image with a blurred background duplicate for visual effect
  • Product title and description
  • Price
  • Add to cart button
  • Quantity input with plus and minus buttons

JavaScript Functionality:

  • Card Generation:

    Uses three loops to create 56 card elements, appending them to either con-cards-1, con-cards-2, or con-cards-3 containers (though only con-cards-1 is defined in the HTML).

  • Add to Cart Interaction:

    The handleAdd function:

    • Adds the add-active class to the clicked card, visually highlighting it.
    • Logs the card element to the console (likely for debugging purposes).
  • Quantity Adjustment:

    The plusLess function:

    • Handles clicks on the plus and minus buttons.
    • Increments or decrements the quantity value in the input field.
    • Removes the add-active class when the quantity reaches 1.


  • Card Styling:

    Uses CSS to style card elements with rounded corners, shadows, borders, and transitions for visual appeal.

  • Scroll Snapping:

    Applies scroll-snap-type: x mandatory to the card container for horizontal snapping.

  • Input Field Styling:

    Styles the quantity input and its surrounding buttons.

Additional Notes:

  • Missing Containers:

    he code refers to con-cards-2 and con-cards-3 containers in the JavaScript loops, but these elements are not present in the provided HTML.

  • Image Sources:

    Product images are fetched from a GitHub repository.

  • Bootstrap:

    Includes Bootstrap for basic styling and utility classes.
