Infinite Scroll and Occlusion at > 60FPS

vertical-collection is an ember-addon that is part of the smoke-and-mirrors framework. It focuses on improving initial and re-render performance in high-stress situations by providing a component for performant lists and svelte renders to match a core belief: Don't render the universe, render the scene.

TL;DR svelte render: the fewer things you need to render, the faster your renders will be.

Your web page is a universe, your viewport is the scene. Much like you wouldn't expect a video game to render out-of-scene content, your application should smartly cull the content it doesn't need to care about. Trimming excess content lets the browser perform both initial renders and re-renders at far higher frame-rates, as the only content it needs to focus on for layout is the content the user can see.

vertical-collection augments your existing app, it doesn't ask you to rewrite layouts or logic in order to use it. It will try its best to allow you to keep the conventions, structures, and layouts you want.

Install

ember install @html-next/vertical-collection

Usage

{{#vertical-collection
    items
    tagName='ul'

    idForFirstItem=idForFirstItem
    firstReached=firstReached
    lastReached=lastReached
    firstVisibleChanged=firstVisibleChanged
    lastVisibleChanged=lastVisibleChanged
     as |item i|}}
    <li>
      {{item.number}} {{i}}
    </li>
{{/vertical-collection}}

Features

Infinite Scroll (bi-directional)

Infinite scroll that remains performant even for very long lists is easily achievable with the vertical-collection. It works via a scrollable div or scrollable body.

Svelte Everything

If it can be trimmer, smoke-and-mirrors likes to trim it.

Contributing

  • Open an Issue for discussion first if you're unsure a feature/fix is wanted.
  • Branch off of master (default branch)
  • Use descriptive branch names (e.g. <type>/<short-description>)
  • Use Angular Style Commits
  • PR against master (default branch).

Commits

Angular Style commit messages have the full form:

<type>(<scope>): <title>

<body>

<footer>

But the abbreviated form (below) is acceptable and often preferred.

<type>(<scope>): <title>

Examples:

  • chore(deps): bump deps in package.json and bower.json
  • docs(component): document the fast-action component

Testing

Make sure you register the test waiter from ember-raf-scheduler. So ember-test-helpers's wait is aware of the scheduled updates.
