Owl Carousel 2 is a very popular and easy to implement Image and HTML slider. This is the most loved and favorable image slider available. Most developers prefer to use this slider due to many reasons like responsiveness, touch device support and also support older browsers. It is a full package of many useful options to customize it.
Here we will discuss navigation arrows, next prev buttons available by default looks a bit simple and centralized in between, so adding some custom CSS we will align them on both corners of the slider.
jsPDF is a nice library to convert HTML content into PDF. We can put the different type of elements in PDF from HTML like an icon, images, text, CSS styles.

You can always find jQuery plugins or libraries for any type of requirement. But if we try to add plugins for every specific requirement, then we end up with a bunch heavy loaded library set which can take much time to load and can badly affect page efficiency. So I personally prefer to always try to code some specific function or method which can easily do the stuff without causing any hassle to page load time and including big sized libraries which always and have not required features which we will never need in future.
Here we will talk about very simple but very important function which can make longer texts look more concise and user-friendly. When we have a web page with longer texts in every section, it becomes very difficult for users to scroll those lengthy documents either they are on desktops or mobile devices. So “Read More” functionality comes to the rescue. This feature adds a read more link after longer texts trimming to 2-3 lines. So if a user wants to read the whole text, they can simply click on “Read More” and see the whole text.
