    • Conditional dragging and conditional dropping
    • Multiple independent lists on the one page
    • Flexible item sizes - the draggable items can have different heights (vertical lists) or widths (horizontal lists)

    • Compatible with semantic <table> reordering - table pattern
    • Auto scrolling - automatically scroll containers and the window as required during a drag (even with keyboard πŸ”₯)

    • Server side rendering (SSR) compatible - see resetServerContext()
    • Plays well with nested interactive elements by default

    Motivation πŸ€”

    react-beautiful-dnd exists to create beautiful drag and drop for lists that anyone can use - even people who cannot see. For a good overview of the history and motivations of the project you can take a look at these external resources:

    Not for everyone ✌️

    There are a lot of libraries out there that allow for drag and drop interactions within React. Most notable of these is the amazing react-dnd. It does an incredible job at providing a great set of drag and drop primitives which work especially well with the wildly inconsistent html5 drag and drop feature. react-beautiful-dnd is a higher level abstraction specifically built for lists (vertical, horizontal, movement between lists, nested lists and so on). Within that subset of functionality react-beautiful-dnd offers a powerful, natural and beautiful drag and drop experience. However, it does not provide the breadth of functionality offered by react-dnd. So react-beautiful-dnd might not be for you depending on what your use case is.
