What is TopUp?

TopUp is an easy to use Javascript library for unobtrusively displaying images and webpages in a Web 2.0 approach of popups. The library is jQuery and jQuery UI driven in order to maintain cross-browser compatibility and compactness. TopUp offers the following advantages:

  • TopUp is absolutely free, also for commercial use (view the license)
  • A very easy setup process: only one(!) include and nothing more
  • Using TopUp presets keeps your HTML code 100% clean, no extra code needed whatsoever
  • The ability of displaying images, flash (from sites like Youtube, SWF and FLV files), movies (QuickTime, Windows Media and Realplayer), iframes, DOM elements and raw HTML
  • TopUp can be used along with Prototype (just include TopUp before Prototype)
  • TopUp is compressed with Yahoo! YUI Compressor to 47.6 KB (includes JS, HTML and CSS)
  • Usage of CSS sprites to reduce the amount of image requests to two per layout for faster loading
  • Cross-browser compatibility
  • Fancy layouts, animations and transitions
  • Auto-correction of size and position when required
  • The possibility to create groups
  • Support for AJAX requests
  • It's open source: check out http://github.com/archan937/topup and enhance TopUp yourself!
  • And many more...

When including from gettopup.com (the easiest setup)

Put the following in the head element:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://gettopup.com/releases/latest/top_up-min.js"></script>  

  1. Note: You can configure TopUp (libs, fast mode, paths) in the querystring of the URL (read documentation)
    ( you can also include a specific release by replacing latest with the version e.g. 1.3.2 )

  3. Enjoy!
