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

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.
