fancyBox 2 is out and I was happy to see that it is truly responsive. I tested it on iOS, Android and Opera Mobile it and works very nicely. Does anybody know of other good responsive lightbox scripts or is this still new territory? I notice a lot of very good responsive themes using lightboxes that are not very mobile friendly. I recently hacked prettyPhoto to make it behave on mobile devices but of course hack jobs are not the ideal solution.

The problem with fancyBox 2 is that the developer license ($89) does not allow for distribution within commercial themes, templates, etc. I love how Isotope is licensed to allow for redistribution in projects and would be thrilled to see fancyBox 2 do something similar. So my question is, how much would you be willing to pay for a license to include a truly responsive and mobile-friendly lightbox in your templates and themes?

PS. fancyBox 2 is hosted separately from the original fancyBox: http://fancyapps.com/fancybox/

Check this: http://codecanyon.net/item/flare-responsive-mobileoptimized-lightbox-plugin/2392703

Thanks but there does not seem to be an extended license option for that one so it’s not helpful to theme and template developers. It’d be great if it was offered with an extended license though.

Hi dudes,

That’s our responsive lightbox item, and like the rest of our stuff on CC, it will never be available with an extended licence while those ridiculous prices (5x) for extended licences remain on CC. That is a no brainer, even if the terms of the extended licences have recently changed.

DOK

Not an Envato item, but I used: http://finegoodsmarket.com/view/

Works a treat, and the extended licence isn’t expensive.

I’ve recently tested these.

Zurb’s Reveal http://www.zurb.com/playground/reveal-modal-plugin Which is part of Foundation also: http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/reveal.php

Colorbox http://www.jacklmoore.com/colorbox Which needs a rewrite, but ultimately fit my needs better.
