jQuery FancyBox plugin
The FancyBox is one of the plugin that I like the most. It's so easy to use and renders really nicely, especially with images. It's a Mac like zooming tool that you can customize quite well and really looks amazing. Source and © Janis Skarnelis
Thank You for Downloading
I'm glad that you found my work useful. If you did, it might help some other people too. So why not helping me spread the word with a tweet? You could also buy me a coffee to thank me for my code and explanations if you prefer ;).
I hope you'll enjoy your download. Regards. Jeremy.
How to setup
As usual, the first thing to do when you want to use a plugin is to include the required files in the header of your page.
For the FancyBox, those files are first the jQuery library, then the plugin script, and an additional stylesheet:
- /** jQuery Inclusion **/
- /** Plugin Inclusion **/
- /** Additional Style **/
- <link href="Path_to/fancybox.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
Very similar to the LightBox, the next step is to declare how and when the FancyBox will be displayed on your page.
So in the same fashion, the following code tells that every link that has a class fancybox will have its content opened in a fancybox.
It can be added in the page header or in a separate js file.
Finally, you just need to create a link whose class will have to be fancybox and whose href attribute will need to contain the path of the element you wish to open within the fancybox:
- <a href="Path_to_target" class="fancybox">Test FancyBox Plugin</a>

As a lead developer, I watch the web development market for solid trends (not the hype ones), and see if they could be a tangible addition to our workflow. Like Angular a few years ago, React has gained enough momentum to catch my attention. I decided to try it out in a side project to get a better understanding of how it works. Here are a few things I've noted from our first encounter. This is a beginner's point of view, not a React expert's one, so if you see any mistakes, don't hesitate to let me know, I'll update the article accordingly.Read more
Composer is an awesome and powerful tool for dependency management in PHP. It allows you to declare the libraries your project depends on and it will manage (install/update) them, and their respective dependencies for you. To make your own libraries or packages usable by composer users, you need to declare them towards composer. When the package is public, less steps are required. You could host your repository online on GitHub for example, then declare it towards the packagist.org index for example. When the repository is private, it's a bit trickier, and I spent some time figuring it out, so here's a little feedback on my attempts.Read more
