Simple Responsive Image Lightbox – SimplBox.js

Description:

SimplBox.js is a standalone JS library for displaying your images in a fully responsive and touch-friendly lightbox, featuring image loader, fullscreen overlay and image caption.

Basic Usage:

Add a link with data-simplbox attribute to your thumbnail. Use <a> tag’s href attribute to define the large version of the image.

<a href="full.jpg" data-simplbox="demo">
    <img src="thumbnail.jpg" alt="My image description that will be used"/>
</a>

Include the simplbox.js script in the document.

<script src="js/simplbox.min.js"></script>

Initialize the  lightbox with a little Javascript.

var A = new SimplBox(document.querySelectorAll("[data-simplbox='demo']"), {

});
A.init();
