Lazyframe

npm version

Dependency-free library for lazyloading iframes. Demo

Why?

Because embedded content takes time to load.

  • Youtube – 11 requests β‰ˆ 580kb
  • Google maps – 52 requests β‰ˆ 580kb
  • Vimeo – 8 requests β‰ˆ 145kb

Lazyframe creates a responsive placeholder for embedded content and requests it when the user interacts with it. This decreases the page load and idle time.

Lazyframe comes with brand-like themes for Youtube, Vimeo and Vine.

Options

You can pass general options to lazyframe on initialization. Element-specific options (most options) are set on data attributes on the element itself.

General options and corresponding defaults

lazyframe(elements, {
   apikey: undefined,
   debounce: 250,
   lazyload: true,

// Callbacks onLoad: (lazyframe) => console.log(lazyframe), onAppend: (iframe) => console.log(iframe), onThumbnailLoad: (img) => console.log(img) })

apikey

If you want to load a thumbnail and title for a YouTube video you'll have to have an API key with the YouTube data API library enabled. Get it from here

If you don't feel like getting a key, just use your own thumbnail and title in data-thumbnail and data-title attribute

debounce

Value (in milliseconds) for when the update function should run after the user has scrolled. More here

lazyload

Set this to

false
if you want all API calls and local images to be loaded on page load (instead of when the element is in view).

onLoad

Callback function for when a element is initialized.

onAppend

Callback function for when the iframe is appended to DOM.

onThumbnailLoad

Callback function with the thumbnail URL

Element-specific options

data-vendor

youtube
,

.

data-title

Attribute for custom title. Leave empty to get value from API.

data-src

The source of what you want to lazyload.

data-ratio

Set this to true if you want the resource to execute (for example video to play) when the element is in view.
