Featherlight.js The ultra slim lightbox.

Featherlight is a very lightweight jQuery lightbox.


Featherlight is very, very lightweight. 400 lines of JavaScript, 100 of CSS, less than 6kB combined.

Don't be fooled by Featherlight's small footprint! It's smart, responsive, supports images, ajax and iframes out of the box and you can adapt it to your needs.

To get started, simply add the "data-featherlight" with a selector, an image or an ajax-url. It's that simple.

For the Pro

Many lightbox plugins try to handle everything for you. Even the ones called «simple» or «lightweight». Featherlight is different. It's for the pro who knows what he’s doing and just needs a barebones plugin.

Thanks to very low specific css selectors and little code, it's easy to customize and to understand.

It's meant to be extended, like our gallery extension.

Battle tested

Featherlight works on IE8+, all modern browsers and on mobile platforms.

Featherlight has an extensive test suite.

Featherlight runs on hundreds of thousands of websites. That we know of.
