Responsive Lightweight Modal/Alert Plugin For jQuery - edbox2

edbox2 is a lightweight jQuery plugin for creating responsive, animated, customizable, AJAX-enabled modal windows and alert messages on the webpage.


  • Easy to style via CSS.
  • Custom modal header/footer content.
  • Content loading spinner.
  • Supports any content types: html, text, image, ajax content, etc.
  • 4 types of alert messages: success, info, warning and danger.
  • Custom open/close animations.
  • Callback functions.


$ npm install jquery.edbox

# Bower
$ bower install jquery.edbox

How to use it:

1. Include the edbox.css inside your head section and the edbox.js just before the closing body tag.

<link href="dist/edbox.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="//"></script> 
<script src="dist/jquery.edbox.js"></script>

2. Load an animation library of your choice for more animations (OPTIONAL).

<link rel="stylesheet" href="//">

3. Display your inline element in the modal.

<div id="modal-content">Your Modal Content</div>
<a href="#" data-box-target="#modal-content" class="trigger-link">Launch The Modal</a>

4. Or define your HTML content or plain text in the data-box-html attribute as this:

<a href="#" data-box-html="Hello World!" class="trigger-link">Launch The Modal</a>

5. If you'd like to load an external HTML file into the modal via AJAX requests.

<a href="ajax.html" class="trigger-link">Launch The Modal</a>

6. Image lightbox is supported as well.

<a href="#" class="trigger-link">Launch The Modal</a>
  image: '1.jpg'

7. All possible options to customize the modal window.


  // target container
  target       : null,

  // use a copy of the element target instead of the element itself
  // only works with target option
  copy: false,

  // html content
