  • No jQuery needed, plain javascript
  • Fully responsive
  • The customizable theme includes SCSS files
  • You can push images uploaded via ajax to lightbox
  • Small in size (<10KB, <3KB compressed)
  • However, CSS3 animations and controls can be used to load GIFs and stock images
  • Licensed under MIT, the code is free for commercial and personal use. However, it would be great if you could send me a link to your websites using my Lightbox so I can see it live in action and post some real-world examples here. I’m also happy about the backlinks and GitHub stars 🙂 The included images are not free to use! Please contact me first if you want to use it!
  • IE8+ support:
