Prompt

Create an image carousel that cycles through images fetched from an endpoint (displaying a new image every 3 seconds), and allows the user to skip to the next/previous image.

The example endpoint contains images within the response as follows:

{ data: { children: [ { data: { url_overridden_by_dest: "*.jpg" } }, ... ] } }

Below is a mockup of what the UI should look like (the carousel should be horizontally centered, with at least some top margin):
