Chocolat.js: Free jQuery Lightbox Plugin

Chocolat is a responsive jQuery lightbox plugin that allows you to display one or more images on the screen at a time. You can group images as a series of photos as a link or use thumbnails in a full-page or block-style design.

The plugin is powerful and designed in a way that newbie-users or the most experienced programmers can appreciate. It comes with an API and multiple CSS classes. Chocolat is also cross-browser compatible and works with pretty much everything, even Internet Explorer 7.

To make things even sweeter, Chocolat is tiny — just 23 kb and only 10 kb when minified. And it is responsive, as you would expect, so it works on any device and allows you to create custom breakpoints as well.

Other plugin features include:

  • Block, full-screen and full-window views
  • Cropping or parent block styles for images
  • Loop playing to restart the flow once the last image shows
  • Keyboard navigation and assignment of shortcut keys

And you can do it all with just three files — jQuery library, plugin file and CSS file — in an easy set up.
