Google Images-esque thumbnail gallery jQuery plugin 1/27/14

By Chris Johnson

I’ve been making an effort to package more of my front-end code into reusable JavaScript and jQuery plugins. My latest creation is the Yo Thumbnail Gallery1. It’s inspired by what you find in the Google Images search results[^doge].

Example of the thumbnail gallery plugin

Clicking a thumbnail brings up a larger version of the image right beneath the thumbnail. You can navigate between thumbnails with the on-screen arrows or using your left and right arrow keys. The styling is intentionally sparse to make it easier to adapt to your own theme.

You can read the usage details on GitHub.
