# jQuery expandme plugin A jQuery JavaScript plugin for expanding images vertically in articles. ## Description This is a very simple plugin that can be useful when putting large images (i.e. website screenshots) inside articles. An image can occupy full width of an article while only the top part of it is visible. An expand/collapse bar at the bottom of the image view expands the image container vertically making the image fully visible. ## Usage Assume we have an article with embedded image inside .expandme wrapper and defined stylesheet similar to the one in ``jquery.expandme\css\expandme.css``. <article> <div class="expandme" style="height: 440px;"> <img src="image.jpg" /> <a href="#" class="expand-toggle"></a> </div> </article> Then the corresponding JS bit is: $('.expandme').expandme(); The plugin can also take callbacks so for example you may want to scroll to article top when collapsing an image: $('.expandme').expandme({ onBeforeCollapse: function(settings){ var $elem = $(this); // Expandable // requires scrollTo plugin $.scrollTo($elem.parents('article'), settings.speed); } }); ## Options All available plugin settings: var settings = $.extend({ height: null, // Initial height of image (usually specified in css) speed: 500, // Expansion/collapsing speed expandEasing: 'swing', // Expand easing for jQuery animate collapseEasing: 'swing', // Collapsing easing for jQuery animate activeClass: 'active', // Class added to expanded element expandToggleClass: 'expand-toggle', // Class for anchor element that triggers expand action onBeforeExpand: null, // Function to call before expanding onAfterExpand: null, // Function to call after expanding onBeforeCollapse: null, // Function to call before collapsing onAfterCollapse: null, // Function to call after collapsing contentSelector: 'img', // jQuery selector string of full-height content element namespace: 'expandme' // Plugin data namespace }, options); ## Resources See the ``css`` and ``img`` folders for stylesheet and image resources required by the plugin. ## Demo See ``index.html`` file in the demo folder or []( for examples.
