The Angular thumbnail grid you'll love

less than 1 minute read

Recently i’ve been reading a lot about how much carousels suck. Still, all of the alternatives i’ve found wouldn’t fit very well for my personal portfolio. By a bit of serendipism, i’ve stumbled upon an article on Codrops teaching how to create a thumbnail grid just like Google Images. And in my brief user testing, it worked pretty well!

Pick an interesting thumbnail, click on it…


… and you get a full screen preview!

As my website uses Angular, it would be very useful to have a directive to make it easier to integrate. As i couldn’t find one, i made one!
