Fantastic 40 is back in SPFx form

Well, actually not, but I hope that the title of this post will make you want to check it out.
I would like to share a great project called "SPFx Fantastic 40 Web Parts". Except the name, this project has almost nothing to do with the old "Fantastic 40 Application Templates for SharePoint (WSS & MOSS)" because it is a collection of 40 SPFx Client Side Web Parts. It is open source project so you can use it as you find for useful. It was created by Olivier Carpentier, but the code is provided "as is" without support from Microsoft.
I am so excited because the web parts look great and they might be a solution to common needs that the out of the box modern webparts don't fulfill.
It is also a great learning resource and demonstration of what can be done with SPFx.
If it is not an issue for you to consume the web parts assets from CDNs you do not control you can download and deploy the *.sppkg as it is and it will work. I also tried most of the web parts on SharePoint Server 2016 with classic pages and they work and look great.
The web parts are grouped in seven categories and below you can find some samples.

Menu & Carousels & News Management: News Slider

The News Slider Web Part renders a simple news slider carousel to your page. You can manage your active news, manage the layout and easily render a cool slider to enhance your pages.

This web part helps to create a tab (you manage, add, delete, edit or move a tab dynamically) and the web part editor can easily modify the tabs content thanks a HTML editor (WYSIWYG). This tab control is responsive, so the layout will adapt the render with the screen size.
