Fancybox an be launched via standard constructor interface:

const fancybox = new Fancybox([  {    src: "<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.</p>",    type: "html",  },]);

It is also possible to launch Fancybox using static method

const fancybox =[  {    src: "",    type: "image",  },]);

If you wish to launch Fancybox when user clicks or taps on HTML elements, add default data-fancybox attribute or use API bind() method to attach click handler to the selected items, as well as all future matching elements. You will then be able to retrieve instance object from any event callback. Example:

<div id="gallery">  <a href="">    <img src="" />  </a>
  <a href="">    <img src="" />  </a></div>
<script>  Fancybox.bind("#gallery a", {    on : {      ready : (fancybox) => {        console.log(`fancybox #${} is ready!`);      }    }  });</script>

Instance methods are available after Fancybox's initialization.

const fancybox = new Fancybox([  {    src: "<h2>Hello, world</h2><p>Lorem lipsum</p>",    type: "html",  },  {    src: "",    type: "image",  },]);
// Methods usage;fancybox.close();
