Using Magnific Popup?

If you used Magnific Popup in some interesting way, or on site of popular brand, I'd be very grateful if you email me a link to it.


To compile Magnific Popup by yourself, first of make sure that you have Node.js, Grunt.js, Ruby and Jekyll installed, then:

1) Copy repository

git clone

2) Go inside Magnific Popup folder that you fetched and install Node dependencies

cd Magnific-Popup && npm install

3) Now simply run

to generate JS and CSS in folder
and site in folder


  • Run
    grunt watch
    to automatically rebuild script when you change files in
    or in
  • If you don't have and don't want to install Jekyll, run
    grunt nosite
    to just build JS and CSS files related to popup in



Script is MIT licensed and free and will always be kept this way. But has a small restriction from me - please do not create public WordPress plugin based on it(or at least contact me before creating it), because I will make it and it'll be open source too (want to get notified?).
