It's been several years since this library was first released, and it's starting to feel a bit long in the tooth. It's probably time for a massive revamp (and potentially full rewrite) of jquery-modal so it's a nicer member of the modern JavaScript ecosystem.

Based on the feedback and issues I've seen, here's a list of things that could be addressed for Version 2.0:

  • Use latest best practices for jQuery plugin and JavaScript in general
  • Better support for packaging systems (npm, bower, etc)
  • Better build system (src/dist folders, task automation)
  • Support only modern browsers
  • Better mobile support
  • Move as much presentation to CSS as possible (animate.css support)
  • Maybe: Use ES6 and more object-oriented patterns?
  • Maybe: Better compatibility with bootstrap and other popular UI frameworks?
  • Maybe: Official React, Angular, etc. compatibility?

Would love input from others 鈥 please leave a comment below!
