React Progressive Loader

Defer the load of non-critical images and components if they are off-screen.

This library makes possible to progressively load images, just like Medium does, and React components only when the user is ready to consume the content. Additionaly, take component based code splitting for free. Two at the price of one.

Lazy Loading Images: https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/performance/lazy-loading-guidance/images-and-video/

Installation

// with yarn
yarn add react-progressive-loader

// with npm
npm install react-progressive-loader

Usage

// ES2015+ and TS
import { Defer, Img } from 'react-progressive-loader'

Components

Defer

Defers the loading of a React component

Props:

  • render: The content to render
  • renderPlaceholder: The content to render while the content is loading
  • loadOnScreen: Load the content only when the area it is going to be rendered is visible for the user

If case the React component is default-exported in ./comp module

<Defer
  render={() => import('./comp')}
  renderPlaceholder={() => <div>Loading...</div>}
/>

If the component is not default-exported

// './comp.jsx'
export const MyComp = () => 'Loaded!'

// './app.jsx'
<Defer
  render={() => import('./comp').then(({MyComp}) => <MyComp />)}
/>

The render prop can also be a React element

<Defer
  render={() => <img src='my-img.png'></img>}
  renderPlaceholder={() => <div>Loading...</div>}
/>

Load the content only when it is on-screen

<Defer
  render={() => <img src='my-img.png'></img>}
  renderPlaceholder={() => <div>Loading...</div>}
  loadOnScreen
/>

Img

Progressively load images. This component makes a smooth animated transition in the following order:

[Background]->[Placeholder]->[Content]

Props:

Any other prop (not listed here) passed to this components will be passed down to the wrapper div

Basic usage

<Img
  src='image.jpeg'
  placeholderSrc='image-placeholder.jpeg'
/>

Transitioning only between background and content. Sometimes you may want to transit only from background to content by finding the dominant color of the image and assigning it to bgColor. This strategy is used by Google image search.

<Img
  bgColor='#FA8054'
  src='image.jpeg'
/>

Load the content only when it is on-screen

<Img
  src='image.jpeg'
  placeholderSrc='image-placeholder.jpeg'
  loadOnScreen
/>

This library uses IntersectionObserver API, for wide browser compatibility consider to add a polyfill
