Using a non-WordPress plugin

If I wanted to use a specific jquery slider plugin which isn’t available as a Wordpress plugin, whats the best way to integrate it?

Should I just enqueue the js file as if I was working on a static HTML site or should I look at converting it to a wordpress plugin? Obviously it will be a private plugin as it’s using someone else’ code.

The easiest option is to just static integrate it into your template files… you could always include an if /else statement so it will show only on your frontpage… but if you wanna make it dynamical, for example you want to add/change images in your administrator panel then i would suggest you build a plugin for it.
