jQuery Lightbox Done Properly
There are a tonne of jQuery lightbox plugins in the world but none of them are as simple to set up and use as the Nivo Lightbox while still offering the flexibility and accessibility available with the Nivo Lightbox. It is responsive, retina-ready and simple to setup for mobile too.
Automatic Content Detection
The Nivo Lightbox automatically detects the type of content you are trying to show and loads it correctly. No extra setup required. So no matter if you are trying to show images, image galleries, AJAX, Flash, Youtube or Vimeo videos, another website or just inline HTML, Nivo Lightbox has you covered.
CSS Powered Effects
The Nivo Lightbox uses some cutting edge CSS transition effects to make your content display in as beautiful a way as possible. We employ some progressive enhancement to make the lightbox look stunning in newer browsers, but still function correctly in older browser (looking at your Internet Explorer).
Small, Semantic, Responsive & HiDPI Compatible
The Nivo Lightbox is also designed to have as small an impact as possible on your page load times, so the minified version only weighs 7kb. We also created the lightbox using the latest standards and made sure that everything is semantic and as compatible as possible. Oh yes and it’s completely responsive and has support for HiDPI (retina).
Free to Use & Abuse
The Nivo Lightbox jQuery plugin is open source and released under the MIT license. This means you can use it almost anywhere and for almost any kind of project, including personal and commercial websites and themes you make. It also means you can give back to the community by contributing your own improvements to the slider via GitHub.
