h5-lightbox

A jQuery lightbox plugin built on HTML5. It uses the HTML5 data attribute to add a larger version of an image then displays that image in a simple modal lightbox.

How to use

  • Add jQuery (at least 1.7) and the plugin to your page.
  • Add a data-large-src attribute to the <img> element with the url of the larger version of your image.
  • Add the jQuery call to run the plugin on your images.
  • Click and enjoy.

Example:

<img src="http://placekitten.com/200/300" alt="kitteh!" 
width="200" height="300" 
data-large-src="http://placekitten.com/400/600" />

<script>
jQuery(function ($) {
	$("img").h5lightbox();
});
</script>

The plugin will go through each img element on the page; if it has the data-large-src (or your own defined attribute) it will wrap that in a link that opens a modal lightbox when clicked.
