Litebox & LITBOX

GeeK Alert.

Litebox is a seriously modified version of Lightbox v2.0 created with one thing in mind, size reduction. It uses a tiny 3kb javascript library called moo.fx in association with prototype.lite (who knew). All in all a great piece of code.

Shoot over to the site and have a look at the demo. I am going to spend some time on the weekend trying to get it to work inside WordPress… wish me luck

and
Ryan Lowe has released LITBox 2.0 LITBox is appears to be a modified Thickbox made into a Prototype class based off of the Scriptaculous.

Here is the hype.

So with all of the light/thick/whatever-box methods out there today, why would I build my own… because I wasn’t all that thrilled with the other ones out there. Don’t get me wrong, LITBox is not perfect, but for what I am developing at SpinWeb, it is the best fit. Probably the biggest advantage of the LITBox, is that it is a lightbox written into a class. This gives it the ability to open multiple instances of the LITBox and be able to control each one with unique settings and controls.

I like this one as well. Damn it’s looking like a busy weekend.
