Sqroll is another scrolling library, with a simple api and a small overhead.


Download source or npm install sqroll.

Include script dist/sqroll.min.js as a script tag or include in source:

const sqroll = require('scroll');

import sqroll from 'scroll';

You might need to polyfill requestAnimationFrame().

API & Usage

Create an instance, add triggers and then start the listener:

const sq = sqroll();

// add triggers...


sq.trigger(el, options)

This is the most basic method. It'll fire a callback function when the window has reached an element.

sq.trigger(el, {
  at: number or string, default: 'top',
  callback: (el, currentScroll, direction) => {

If at is a number, the callback will fire as soon as the vewport has scrolled that amount of pixels.

If at is a string, the reference point will be set relative to the element:

  • If at is top, middle or bottom, the callback will fire when the top of the viewport has reached the top, middle or bottom of the element.
  • You can add an offset in px or vh like: 'top+100px', 'middle-50vh', 'bottom-100'.
  • If only offset is defined, default reference point is top: '+50px', '-10vh'.

Callback is called with the element reference, the current amount of scroll and the direction the user scrolled ('up' or 'down').

sq.viewport(el, options)

This method will fire one callback every time the element enters the viewport, and one callback everytime it leaves the viewport.

sq.viewport(el, {
  onIn: (el, currentScroll, direction) => {
  onOut: (el, currentScroll, direction) => {

Optionally, you can add an offset option with space-separated pair of offsets (top and bottom), like: offset: '100px 200px.

sq.track(el, options)

This will change a value from a starting point to an ending point while the user scrolls.

sq.track(el, {
  startAt: 'top-50vh',
  endAt: 'bottom',
  from: 1,
  to: 0,
  callback: (elem, value, scroll, direction) => { = value;
  • startAt where should the callback start firing with updated values. In case of 'top-50vh', it means when the top of the element minus half of the viewport height reaches the top of the viewport.
  • endAt where should the callback stop. In case of 'bottom', it means when the bottom of the element reaches the top of the viewport.
  • from the starting value. In this example, value will be 1 until the viewport has scrolled to startAt, then it'll start changing.
  • to the ending value. In this example value will increase with the scroll until the viewport scroll has reached endAt, that's when value will equal to.
  • callback gets called only if value is updated.


Start listening to scroll events and firing callbacks.


Stop listening to scroll events.


Remove all registered callbacks


Stop listening and remove all callbacks.
