A demo showing images being swiped left or right.


npm package Follow on Twitter

A simple image gallery built with react which works nicely on desktop and mobile devices. View the demo


Install react-gesture-gallery and its peer dependency, react-gesture-responder using yarn or npm.

yarn add react-gesture-gallery react-gesture-responder

Basic usage

By default, the gallery will attempt to fit into its container using height: 100% and width: 100%, so you should generally provide a container with a set width and height. For a full-screen gallery, using width: 100vw and height: 100vh. Note that this library doesn't display in a modal by default, but it's easy enough to provide your own.

The example gif above is generated by this code:

import * as React from "react";
import { Gallery, GalleryImage } from "react-gesture-gallery";

function Example() {
  const [index, setIndex] = React.useState(0);

  const images = [

  return (
    <div style={{ background: "black", width: "100vw", height: "100vh" }}>
        onRequestChange={i => {
        { => (
          <GalleryImage objectFit="contain" key={img.src} src={img.src} />



Name Type Default Value Description
index * number The index of gallery to show
onRequestChange * (i: number) => void; A callback requesting the active image change
enableKeyboard boolean true Enable keyboard controls

enableControls boolean true Enable back and forward arrows
