PanoramAh: Version Two

Last week I put together a quick script to display a panorama I took in Colorado.

It was a one-off script and I didn’t think much of it until Naina Redhu left a comment asking about using it for multiple panorama’s.

It didn’t take much to tweak it into a full fledged jQuery plugin. I just took the bit that made the panorama and tweaked it to use local references. While I was at it I removed the requirement for a pre-loader image in the markup. Have a look.

Using it is pretty easy too, just set up your HTML like so:

Then make a collection and call panoramah() on it:

There’s a demo available here and you can keep up with any changes at Github.
