🎠 react-rotator

Flexible React component for composing rotators, carousels, slideshows and more.

Install

Via npm:

npm install --save react-rotator

Via Yarn:

yarn add react-rotator

How to use

The Rotator is built with the intention of offering a truly flexible system for building rotators, carousels, slideshows, etc. with a simplified interface for managing various ways that these components can exist.

Properties

  • component:Element | String - React component or HTMLElemnt to render as wrapper for rotator. (Default: div)
  • index:Number - Index of the currently active child. (Default: 0)
  • onChange:Function - Callback for when the index is changed internally, either via a child or indicator.

Children & Indicators

Each child within a <Rotator /> instance has properties applied that allow them to manage their own behavior based on those props. Along with callbacks that can be passed in to control the rotator’s behavior.

In addition to the [children], an optional indicator component can be passed in via props that will be rendered alongside the <Rotator />’s children, which allows for displaying indicators on progress, or building pagination controls for the <Rotator />.

Here’s a breakdown of how [children] and an indicator is managed by the component.

Children

The goal is to allow for maximum flexibility through composition. Feel free to set whatever props your components need, but the following properties will be applied/overwritten by the <Rotator /> when rendered to the page.

Properties
  • index:Number - Index of the child amongst the other children they are rendered with.
  • numChildren:Number - Number of relative children that are being rendered with this child.
  • position:Number - Position of the child in relation the the current index set on the <Rotator />.
  • If the position is 0, it could be assumed that this is the “active” child.
  • If the position is <0, the child is positioned before the current “active” child.
  • If the position is >0, the child is positioned after the current “active” child.
  • onActive:Function - Callback that could be triggered by the child when the child becomes "active". This could have different meanings depending on the child, but onActive will update the <Rotator /> to set that child at position 0.
  • onFinish:Function - Callback that could be triggered by the child, in the event that the child is managing it’s status or responsible for initiating progression within the <Rotator />.
Example
import Rotator from 'react-rotator';

...

  render() {
    return (
      <Rotator>

      </Rotator>
    );
  }

...

Indicator

An indicator component can be composed within the <Rotator /> via the indicator prop. This makes it really easy to pass in a component that will reflect the current status of the rotator, while also allowing for callbacks to be called to control the state of the rotator.

You can make your own paging indicators, or I’ve created a companion package that contains some common paging indicator components that you can use, react-paging-indicators.

Properties
  • index:Number - Index of the currently selected child.
  • onChange:Function - Callback for when the indicator changes, passing its index to set the new index state in the <Rotator />.
Example
import Rotator from 'react-rotator';
import {DotsIndicator} from 'react-paging-indicators';

...

  render() {
    return (
      <Rotator
        indicator={<DotsIndicator />}
      >

      </Rotator>
    );
  }

...
