Scalable Lightbox

A jQuery plugin for building aesthetically minimalistic, responsive picture lightboxes. Features an index module for providing an overview with thumbnails as well as a lightbox module, for displaying high-res images in a responsive manner.

Please go to the plugin page for a complete documentation of the plugin.


ScalableLightbox is a jQuery plugin, which means you have to integrate the jQuery library (v1.7.1+ or even v2.0.0+) on your website. Then include one of the following versions of the plugin depending on your purpose:

  • jquery.scalable-lightbox.js — for development
  • jquery.scalable-lightbox.min.js — for production
<!-- ... -->

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.scalable-lightbox.js"></script>

<!-- ... -->


Even easier, you may install ScalableLightbox via Bower:

bower install scalable-lightbox

For personal, non-commercial, or open source projects and applications, you may use this software under the terms of the GPL v3 License. In short, this means you may use ScalableLightbox for free.
