Download: https://nkdev.info/downloads/advanced-wordpress-backgrounds/

Getting Started

ES6

npm install jarallax --save

import {
    jarallax,
    jarallaxElement,
    jarallaxVideo
} from 'jarallax';

jarallaxVideo();
jarallaxElement();

Note: in this way is not available jQuery and data-attribute automatic initialization. Use javascript call instead (Example).

Browser

<!-- Jarallax -->
<script src="jarallax/dist/jarallax.min.js"></script>

<!-- Include it if you want to use Video parallax -->
<script src="jarallax/dist/jarallax-video.min.js"></script>

<!-- Include it if you want to parallax any element -->
<script src="jarallax/dist/jarallax-element.min.js"></script>

CDN

Link directly from unpkg

<!-- Jarallax -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/jarallax@1.10/dist/jarallax.min.js"></script>

<!-- Include it if you want to use Video parallax -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/jarallax@1.10/dist/jarallax-video.min.js"></script>

<!-- Include it if you want to parallax any element -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/jarallax@1.10/dist/jarallax-element.min.js"></script>

Supported plugins

You can add these plugins before jarallax initialize.

Set up your HTML

<!-- Background Image Parallax -->
<div class="jarallax">
    <img class="jarallax-img" src="<background_image_url_here>" alt="">
    Your content here...
</div>

<!-- Background Image Parallax with <picture> tag -->
<div class="jarallax">
    <picture class="jarallax-img">
        <source media="..." srcset="<alternative_background_image_url_here>">
        <img src="<background_image_url_here>" alt="">
    </picture>
    Your content here...
</div>

<!-- Alternate: Background Image Parallax -->
<div class="jarallax" style="background-image: url('<background_image_url_here>');">
    Your content here...
</div>

Additional styles

These styles need to correct background image position before Jarallax initialized:

.jarallax {
    position: relative;
    z-index: 0;
}
.jarallax > .jarallax-img {
    position: absolute;
    object-fit: cover;
    /* support for plugin https://github.com/bfred-it/object-fit-images */
    font-family: 'object-fit: cover;';
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    z-index: -1;
}

You can include it from dist/jarallax.css.

Call the plugin

A. Data attribute way

<div data-jarallax data-speed="0.2" class="jarallax">
    <img class="jarallax-img" src="<background_image_url_here>" alt="">
    Your content here...
</div>

Note: You can use all available options as data attributes. For example: data-speed, data-img-src, data-img-size, etc...

B. JavaScript way

jarallax(document.querySelectorAll('.jarallax'), {
    speed: 0.2
});

C. jQuery way

$('.jarallax').jarallax({
    speed: 0.2
});

Background Video Usage Examples

<!-- Background YouTube Parallax -->
<div class="jarallax" data-jarallax-video="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ab0TSkLe-E0">
    Your content here...
</div>

<!-- Background Vimeo Parallax -->
<div class="jarallax" data-jarallax-video="https://vimeo.com/110138539">
    Your content here...
</div>

<!-- Background Local Video Parallax -->
<div class="jarallax" data-jarallax-video="mp4:./video/local-video.mp4,webm:./video/local-video.webm,ogv:./video/local-video.ogv">
    Your content here...
</div>

Note: for local videos required only 1 video type, not necessary use all mp4, webm and ogv. This need only for maximum compatibility with all browsers.

Any Element Parallax Usage Examples

<!-- Element will be parallaxed on -140 pixels from the screen center by Y axis -->
<div data-jarallax-element="-140">
    Your content here...
</div>

<!-- Element will be parallaxed on 250 pixels from the screen center by Y axis and on -100 pixels from the screen center by X axis -->
<div data-jarallax-element="250 -100">
    Your content here...
</div>

Note: this is more like experimental feature, so the behavior could be changed in the future releases.
