Bootstrap - Lightbox Build Status

This is a plugin for Twitter Bootstrap that adds a lightbox that is based off the modal dialog

Quick start

You have several options. You can clone the repository git clone git://, grab an archive, or use cdnjs.

Once you have the files include the CSS and JavaScript files in your page and then give the example code below a shot.


<a data-toggle="lightbox" href="#demoLightbox">Open Lightbox</a>
<div id="demoLightbox" class="lightbox hide fade"  tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-hidden="true">
    <div class='lightbox-header'>
        <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="lightbox" aria-hidden="true">&times;</button>
    <div class='lightbox-content'>
        <img src="image.png">


Via data attributes

All you need to do is add data-toggle="lightbox" and href="#lightbox" or data-target="#lightbox" to a link, and set the href so it references the lightbox you want to display.

<a data-toggle="lightbox" href="#demoLightbox">Open Lightbox</a>

Via JavaScript

Open the lightbox with the id myLightbox.

Note: This only applies when using JavaScript to setup the lightbox.
