Background Parallax Animation In jQuery - backgroundParallax.js

backgroundParallax.js is a really simple jQuery plugin which applies a subtle parallax scrolling effect to your background images using CSS position property.

How to use it:

1. Add your own background images to the containers using 'data-src' attribute as these:

<div class="panel" data-src="1.png"></div>
<div class="panel" data-src="2.png"></div>
<div class="panel" data-src="3.png"></div>

2. Set a fixed height to the container in the CSS:

.panel {
  height: 600px;

3. Put jQuery library (slim build is recommended) and the jQuery backgroundParallax.js script at the bottom of the html page.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="jQuery.parallaxBackground.min.js"></script>

4. Activate the parallax scrolling effect.


5. Override the default CSS styles of your background images.

  css: {
    backgroundSize: 'cover',
    backgroundPosition: '50% 0',
    backgroundRepeat: 'no-repeat',
    overflow: 'hidden'

6. Enable/disable the parallax effect on mobile devices.
