lazySizes object fit extension

This extension polyfills object-fit: cover and contain properties as also the object-position in non supporting browsers. Here you find a simple demo.

Usage

Include JS files:

Include lazysizes and lazysizes object fit and optionally lazysizes parent-fit and lazysizes respimg plugin. Lazysizes object-fit and respimg plugin are only needed in browser that don’t support object fit or responsive images. Lazysizes parent-fit is recommended if you use object fit responsive images in combination with data-sizes="auto".

<!-- polyfill for object-fit (only needed in browsers that don't support object-fit) -->
<script src="../plugins/object-fit/ls.object-fit.min.js"></script>
<!-- required: -->
<script src="../lazysizes.min.js" async=""></script>

<!-- only for data-sizes="auto" in combination with object-fit CSS property (native or polyfill) -->
<script src="../plugins/parent-fit/ls.parent-fit.min.js"></script>
<!-- respimg polyfill (only needed in browser that don't support respimg) -->
<script src="../plugins/respimg/ls.respimg.min.js"></script>

Add markup

The object-fit plugin is not a full polyfill.

<div class="imagecontainer">
	<img class="imagecontainer-img lazyload"
		 data-srcset="https://placehold.it/800x400 800w 400h,
		 	https://placehold.it/1200x600 1200w"
		 data-sizes="auto" >
	/>
</div>

<div class="imagecontainer">
	<img class="imagecontainer-img lazyload"
		 data-srcset="https://placehold.it/500x700 500w 700h,
		 	https://placehold.it/643x900 643w"
		 data-sizes="auto" >
	/>
</div>

CSS

To init the plugin on an image simply use the font-family property directly on your image.

.imagecontainer {
	position: relative;
	border: 3px solid #ccc;
}

.imagecontainer:before {
	display: block;
	width: 100%;
	content: "";
	padding-bottom: 100%;
	height: 0;
}

.imagecontainer-img {
	position: absolute;
	display: block;
	top: 0;
	left: 0;
	width: 100%;
	height: 100%;
	transition: 400ms transform;

	object-fit: contain;
	font-family: "object-fit: contain";
}

.imagecontainer-img:hover {
	transform: scale(1.1);
}
