SLB: Templates

By Sol in Lab

Jumping right into adding templates to Simple Lightbox today.

My main reasons for adding this functionality:

  • Different styles of lightboxes generally require a completely different script.  Why not create one script and let users decide the style that they want?
  • Allow users to create and share templates with each other

I’m currently buttoning down the template “language”.  It will mostly be straight HTML, but with a few special “tags” sprinkled in to make the HTML compatible with the lightbox code.

Once I finalize the template specification tomorrow, the next step will be to build the lightbox UI from a template file.
