FrameWarp : jQuery plugin for displaying pages in a neat overlay

There is the option of using one of the numerous lightbox plugins to do this, but the plugin we will be creating in this tutorial has a lot of advantages over a generic lightbox script:

  • Lightweight – it is created specifically for showing pages, not images;
  • No UI, so the page feels like a dialog window;
  • The page can close itself, and can also send messages to the parent window;
  • Can optionally use a cache for faster subsequent page loads;
  • Uses a neat CSS animation with a JavaScript fallback.
