GI.TheWall.js is a jQuery plugin that allows you to show a photo wall gallery or any other content in a "Google Image Search" user interaction way. When an image is clicked, an image slider slides up from the bottom that allows you to cycle through large images with keyboard and arrows navigation.

How to use it:

1. Include the required Font Awesome 4 for the navigation & close icons.

<link href="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.1.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Create a photo wall gallery from a list of images with Html5 data-* attributes.

  • data-contenttype: Content type. image or ajax
  • data-href: Path to your large image or ajax file
<div class="GITheWall">
  <ul>
    <li data-contenttype="image" data-href="large.jpg"> <img src="thumb.jpg" /> </li>
    <li data-contenttype="ajax" data-href="ajax.html"> ajax text + image </li>
    ...
  </ul>
</div>

3. The required CSS to style the photo wall gallery.
