For me lightweight means (no jquery) and this plugin checks all the boxes for my requirement. I never wanted a bloated lightbox plugin which adds tons of options and customization features adding un-necessary CSS and JS. Here I just get the lightbox feature with minimal CSS adding no extra bloat to the website. Best part is NO JQEURY and I hope it remains this way. Thanks again!
