Sidenav.js

devDependency Status Build Status

Sidenav.js is a React component that enables users add to left side navigation to their website that behaves like a native side navigation component of an Android application. No dependencies! Only 3K when minified and gzipped! Open Google Play Store and swipe your finger from the left of the screen. This library tries to provide the exact same behavior.

Demo

To see a live demo click here or scan the barcode at the end of the page. Don't forget to try it on your mobile phone too! Swipe your finger from the left of the screen towards the right, just like you Open a sidenav in Android!

Install

npm install --save sidenavjs
yarn add sidenavjs

Usage (minimal setup)

import React, { Component } from 'react'

import Sidenav from 'sidenavjs'

class Example extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props)
    this.state = {
      sidebarOpen: false
    }
  }

  onSetSidebarOpen = open => {
    this.setState({ sidebarOpen: open })
  }

  render () {
    return (
      <Sidenav
        open={this.state.sidebarOpen}
        onSetOpen={this.onSetSidebarOpen}
        sidenav={
          <div>sidenav contents</div>
        }
      >
        <div>
          body contents
          <button onClick={() => { this.onSetSidebarOpen(true) }}>
            Click here to open the sidenav
          </button>
        </div>
      </Sidenav>
    )
  }
}

Features

  1. Mobile first. Means: The library is small and robust, optimized for fluidity and framerate.
  2. Multi-finger handled. Means: We won't confuse your fingers and throw a bunch of exceptions if you touch with more then one finger.
  3. You can open/close sidenav programmatically.
  4. You can a attach callback to learn if the user is touching the sidenav.
  5. You can a attach callback to learn if an animation in progress or not.
  6. Sidenav contains only a minimal CSS bundled with it: You can add your custom classes and styles to make the styling perfect.

API

You can pass a couple of props to Sidenav.

sidenav

Type: node

Is required: Yes

Default value: N/A

The provided node will be shown as the content of the sidenav.

children

Type: node

Is required: Yes

Default value: N/A

The provided node should represent the actual page contents. Sidenav will open alongside the node provided as children. Sidenav expects to be close to the root of the component tree as much as possible. As sidebar opens over the whole page, you should wrap the whole page with the Sidenav component.

open

Type: boolean

Is required: Yes

Default value: N/A

If true the sidenav will be displayed. You can change the value programmatically to open/close sidenav by your custom logic. (e.g. on button click)

onSetOpen

Type: function(boolean)

Is required: Yes

Default value: N/A

If the sidenav's open/close state changes due to the user action (e.g. swiping, touching backdrop etc.) this function is called with a boolean value. Calling the function with true means the sidenav is now opened, and calling with false means it is closed. You are expected to update the open value with the value provided by this function. Please see the example above to see how it works.

onSetBusy

Type: function(boolean)

Is required: No

Default value: () => {} (noop)

If provided, this function is called by the sidenav when sidenav becomes busy or when sidenav becomes available again. It will be called with a single boolean variable. true represents sidenav is busy and false represents that it is available again. In the current implementation, sidebar is "busy" when an animation is in progress. In the future "being busy" may also cover other operations.

onTouch

Type: function(boolean)

Is required: No

Default value: () => {} (noop)

If provided, this function is called by the sidenav when a touch operation is being handled by the sidenav. It will be called with a single boolean variable. true represents sidenav is handling a touch and false represents that it is done handling. Please note that this doesn't necessarily mean that user is touching the sidenav itself. The user might be dragging from the left side of the screen or touching the backdrop as well. As long as a touch is handled by the library this callback will be notified.

options

Type: object

Is required: No

Default value: Click here

Options are used to customize sidenav's behavior to your liking. options is an object and accepts a couple of different keys. Please note that you can't change options after rendering Sidenav component. This is an intentional choice mostly for performance reasons. If you need to change an option for some reason you should remove and re-render the component.

options.extraClosePixels

Type: number

Due to styling that overflows out of sidenav, such as shadows, swiping sidebar out of screen might not be enough. Although sidenav is swiped out of the screen, its shadow might still leak into the screen. Due to this reason, you can provide extraClosePixels.

options.width

Type: number

This number determines the width of the sidebar. If not provided, the width of the sidenav node will be automatically calculated and used.

options.backdropOpacity

Type: number between 0 and 1

This number determines the opacity of the backdrop when it is fully deployed.

options.sidenavClass

Type: string

If you want to provide a class name for the sidebar element, you can do so.

options.sidenavStyle

Type: object

If you want to provide styling to the sidebar element, you can do so. The object should follow react's style attribute conventions.

options.backdropStyle

Type: object

If you want to provide styling to the backdrop element, you can do so. The object should follow react's style attribute conventions.

options.contentStyle

Type: object

If you want to provide styling to the children (content), you can do so. The object should follow react's style attribute conventions.

options.dragStartSensitivity

Type: number

The number of pixels on the left side of the screen that is sensitive to swiping right. Due to humans fingers being big, swiping from the left side of the screen doesn't really start from the 0th pixel on the left. This setting is used to set how many pixels should trigger dragging from the left, thus displaying the sidenav.

If the number is too small, people won't be able to easily swipe from left to display the sidenav. If the number is too big regular movements (scrolling etc.) might be mistakenly detected as sidenav swiping.

options.swipeSensitivity

Type: number

If sidenav is swiped with a certain amount of speed, even when it is not half way through it'll still open/close. This number adjusts the sensitivity to that. The number's measurement unit is "pixel difference per touch event". I am aware that this doesn't mean much. Better to increase/decrease and find the good fit yourself. :-)

options.defaultAnimationSensitivity

Type: number

Sidenav animation reacts to the swipe speed of the user. If the user takes a rapid action, the animation is gradually speeded up to fit the user's rhythm for a more native-like experience. This number is used to adjust the reaction difference. The number itself is multiplayer in an equation. It is better to play with it and see the difference.

options.animationDuration

Type: number

The default animation duration for the sidebar in milliseconds. This will be adjusted to be slower faster depending on the distance that sidenav needs to animate and speed of the swipe.

Setting up the development environment

  1. Discuss the change that you want to introduce. You can open an issue for that.
  2. Fork the project.
  3. Run npm i in the project root and in example folder.
  4. Run npm start in the project root and in example folder in two different consoles. This will start a test app where you can check your changes alongside with the actual component.
  5. Browse http://localhost:3000 to see your changes.
  6. Develop something.
  7. Make a pull request.
