Hero is a plugin for making hero banners using Pages, Slides, Videos, Colour Panels, and Single Images. It was built to power the hero banners on The Work of Others. It is a little opinionated and out of the box requires a couple of other plugins:

It was also built around Tiny Slider. If you use a different slider or need to amend the classes or html markup, you can do so by overriding the snippets. The CSS is up to you, but an example sass file is provided and depends on Tiny Slider. You can find this in the css folder in the plugin.
