npm install yet-another-react-lightbox

Minimal Setup Example

import * as React from "react";
import Lightbox from "yet-another-react-lightbox";
import "yet-another-react-lightbox/styles.css";

export default function App() {
  const [open, setOpen] = React.useState(false);

  return (
    <>
      <button type="button" onClick={() => setOpen(true)}>
        Open Lightbox
      </button>

      <Lightbox
        open={open}
        close={() => setOpen(false)}
        slides={[
          { src: "/image1.jpg" },
          { src: "/image2.jpg" },
          { src: "/image3.jpg" },
        ]}
      />
    </>
  );
}

Recommended Setup

Unlike many other lightbox libraries, Yet Another React Lightbox is not limited to just two images per slide ("thumbnail" and "original" / "full size"). Instead, we favor responsive images with automatic resolution switching and recommend you provide multiple files of different resolutions for each image slide. Yet Another React Lightbox automatically populates srcset / sizes attributes and lets the user's browser decide which image is more appropriate for its viewport size.

import * as React from "react";
import Lightbox from "yet-another-react-lightbox";
import "yet-another-react-lightbox/styles.css";

export default function App() {
  const [open, setOpen] = React.useState(false);

  return (
    <>
      <button type="button" onClick={() => setOpen(true)}>
        Open Lightbox
      </button>

      <Lightbox
        open={open}
        close={() => setOpen(false)}
        slides={[
          {
            src: "/image1x3840.jpg",
            alt: "image 1",
            width: 3840,
            height: 2560,
            srcSet: [
              { src: "/image1x320.jpg", width: 320, height: 213 },
              { src: "/image1x640.jpg", width: 640, height: 427 },
              { src: "/image1x1200.jpg", width: 1200, height: 800 },
              { src: "/image1x2048.jpg", width: 2048, height: 1365 },
              { src: "/image1x3840.jpg", width: 3840, height: 2560 },
            ],
          },
          // ...
        ]}
      />
    </>
  );
}

You can also integrate 3rd-party image components (e.g., Next.js Image or Gatsby Image) via a custom render function. See examples on the documentation website.
