jQuery Lighter

Lighter is a jQuery plugin created to provide zoomable content like other light box plugins.

Installation

To install copy the javascripts and stylesheets directories into your project and add the following snippet to the header:

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.0.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="javascripts/jquery.lighter.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<link href="stylesheets/jquery.lighter.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

This plugin is also registered under http://bower.io/ to simplify integration. Try:

npm install -g bower
bower install lighter

Lastly this plugin is registered as a https://rails-assets.org/ to simplify integration with Ruby on Rails applications:

Gemfile

+ source 'https://rails-assets.org'
...
+ gem 'rails-assets-lighter'

application.css

/*
 ...
 *= require lighter
 ...
*/

application.js

//= require jquery
...
//= require lighter

Examples

Setting up a lighter is easy. The following snippet is a good start:

<a href="samples/sample-01.png" data-lighter>
  <img src="samples/preview-01.png" />
</a>
<a href="samples/sample-02.png" data-lighter>
  <img src="samples/preview-02.png" />
</a>
<a href="samples/sample-03.png" data-lighter>
  <img src="samples/preview-03.png" />
