Snowbridge Parallax

A Simple Parallax Plugin

Responsive Parallax Sections

Snowbridge is a 100% responsive and CSS3 transition driven parallax plugin. Ideal for highlighting key information or full sections.

Resource Files

Snowbridge requires the following resource files:

									<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/snowbridge.css" />
									<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.12.4.min.js"></script>
									<script type="text/javascript" src="js/"></script>

Parallax Image

Snowbridge requires that the parallax image be specified using the data-src attribute on the parallax wrapper. An initial height for the parallax section should be added to the class used for the parallax section. For illustrative purposes only it has been added as an inline style. Optionally use the classes .tmp-content and .tmp-content-inner to center content within a parallax section.

Parallax captions or content can be horizontally aligned using text aligning classes such as .left, .center, .right and vertically aligned by applying vertical align classes such as .v-align-top and .v-align-bottom. These classes should be applied to the .tmp-content-inner wrapper.



Important: If retina is supported (i.e. retinaSupport = true ), two images must be provided, the original and the retina version. For example, if your parallax image is named "parallax-image.jpg", the corresponding retina version should be named "parallax-image@2x.jpg" using the @2x suffix. Also ensure that the retina version should is twice the size of the original image.
