Here are some examples of what a post with images might look like. If you want to display two or three images next to each other responsively use figure with the appropriate class. Each instance of figure is auto-numbered and displayed in the caption.

Figures (for images or video)

One Up

One Center

Two Up

Apply the half class like so to display two images side by side that share the same caption.

<figure class="half">
	<img src="/images/image-filename-1.jpg" alt="">
	<img src="/images/image-filename-2.jpg" alt="">
	<figcaption>Caption describing these two images.</figcaption>
</figure>

And you’ll get something that looks like this:

Two images.

Three Up

Apply the third class like so to display three images side by side that share the same caption.

<figure class="third">
	<a href="http://placehold.it/1200x600.jpg"><img src="http://placehold.it/600x300.jpg" alt=""></a>
	<a href="http://placehold.it/1200x600.jpg"><img src="http://placehold.it/600x300.jpg" alt=""></a>
	<a href="http://placehold.it/1200x600.jpg"><img src="http://placehold.it/600x300.jpg" alt=""></a>
	<figcaption>Caption describing these three images.</figcaption>
</figure>

And you’ll get something that looks like this:

Three images.

Alternative way

Another way to achieve the same result is to include gallery Liquid template. In this case you don’t have to write any HTML tags – just copy a small block of code, adjust the parameters (see below) and fill the block with any number of links to images. You can mix relative and external links.

Here is the block you might want to use:

{% capture images %}
	/images/abstract-10.jpg
	/images/abstract-11.jpg
	http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/24/Lenna.png
{% endcapture %}
{% include gallery images=images caption="Test images" cols=3 %}

Parameters:

  • caption: Sets the caption under the gallery (see figcaption HTML tag above);
  • cols: Sets the number of columns of the gallery. Available values: [1..3].

It will look something like this:

Parallel calls with async-await in javascript - I promise you all performance and simplicity

I was blown away about the simplicity and performance gain of making parallel calls with the new async-await feature in javascript. See the blog post to understand why. Continue reading
