Data URI for images

May 11, 2012 at 9:48 AM

I've modified AD Gallery for our corporate CDN replacing all image name references with Data URI values.  I was finding that I had to overwrite the CSS and JS values every time that I wanted to use Ad Gallery since the images don't exist in the same folder as the loaded url.

With this modification there are no changes required to get the default "skin" for the plugin.  And if someone doesn't want the default skin they can just overwrite the css like that would have had to in order to get the original skin working.

The one downside to this project, given all images are tiny, is that data uri isn't supported in prior to IE8.  This isn't an issue for our corporate sites, and if it was we'd just overwrite the css and set the loading icon in js like we have to do without data uri values.

What are your thoughts on making this the default for AD Gallery so that just loading the css and js the plugin "just works" with no further modification.  Still supply this icons as images, and possible supply a secondary css that overwrites the images with named images, just in case people need them.

In any case, thanks for writing and maintaining this project.

Hi,

Your modification sounds interesting. Is the code available somewhere so I can look at it?

I've put the css up at:

The JS requires changing the text "loader.gif" to "data:image/gif;base64,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

Hi,

The uri for the loader can be passed in as a setting to the adGallery function, so you don't need to modify AD Gallery to get that working.

Since the rest of your changes are in CSS, I'm a bit hesitant of incorporating it as default in AD Gallery. I see those types of changes more as a customization of AD Gallery.
