A second version of the lightweight lightbox inspired component for Vue.js with local video support and more comming.



npm install --save vue-silentbox

Import the plugin into Vue:

import Vue from 'vue'
import VueSilentbox from 'vue-silentbox'


How to use?

Define an array of images in the data object of your Vue instance or component.

const app = new Vue({
    el: '#application',
    data: {
        images: [
                src: 'images/image001.jpg',
                description: 'Sunken dreams II. by Arbebuk',
                src: 'images/image002.jpg',
                description: 'Tunnel View Sunrise by Porbital',

Then in the template you can use a silent-box component to display gallery.

<silent-box :gallery="images"><!-- your additional content --></silentbox-single>

or to show single image by just renaming the property.

<silent-box :image="images[0]"><!-- your additional content --></silentbox-single>

Image object attributes

You can set following attributes to the image object to change the behaviour
of the SilentBox or display additional information. On the other hand, if you're
lazy, only src attribute is required.

Attribute required type Description
src yes string media source, it could be an image or a youtube / Vimeo video
thumbnail no string image used for thumbnail
thumbnailHeight no string height of the thumbnail in px
thumbnailWidth no string width of the thumbnail in px
description no string short description below image (doesn't work below videos yet)
alt no string alt description for images
autoplay no bool to autoplay youtube / Vimeo video
controls no bool works only for youtube videos, setting false will hide video controls

Supported services and formats

  • All image formats that can be displayed in browser
  • Local video files with following extensions .mp4, .ogg, .webm, .mov, .flv, .wmv, .mkv
  • YouTube and Viemo embed videos with autoplay

Upgrading from 0.1?

Version 2 brought many breaking changes. There are no more two separate components
to display single image or gallery. So, change all your silentbox-group and silentbox-single components to silent-box.
Source of images must be an array of objects or single object with previously mentioned attributes.
