Strip: jQuery Responsive Lightbox

This plugin is a less intrusive responsive lightbox because Strip only partially covers the page. This makes it less intrusive and leaves room to interact with the page on larger screens while giving smaller mobile device screens a more classic lightbox experience.

Strip uses jQuery and works on all major browsers.

What’s nice about the Strip lightbox is that it is compatible with common image and video APIs, such as YouTube and Vimeo. The plugin automatically detects the included media type based on URL, making it easy for you to create a lightbox with varying images and videos.

Strip is also fully customizable with a variety of existing skins that come with the download. Users can install with the default skin or create website-specific looks using custom options.

The width and height of the plugin can also be adjusted to fit different size media and impact how animation and transitions display. The plugin has options for placement as well with top, bottom, left- and right-side options.

Strip is easy to install. Just add the class to a link, add using a data attribute or custom options attribute. Another alternative is to use an API that allows Strip to be used with Javascript.
