Swup Forms Plugin

A swup plugin for submitting forms.

  • Serialize and submit forms with animated page transitions
  • Opt-in with a configurable selector, by default form[data-swup-form]
  • Respects custom animations set on the form element

Note: This plugin is meant for simple scenarios like search or contact forms. For complex requirements like custom serialization, it is recommended to use the swup API directly.

Installation

Install the plugin from npm and import it into your bundle.

npm install @swup/forms-plugin
import SwupFormsPlugin from '@swup/forms-plugin';

Or include the minified production file from a CDN:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/@swup/forms-plugin@3"></script>

Usage

To run this plugin, include an instance in the swup options.

const swup = new Swup({
  plugins: [new SwupFormsPlugin()]
});

Server response

Action, method and encoding type attributes set on the form are respected.

The server response must be a valid page with all containers to be replaced by swup.

Custom animations

The plugin respects custom animations set on the form using the data-swup-animation attribute:

<!-- Animate with an 'overlay' custom animation -->
<form action="/" data-swup-form data-swup-animation="overlay">

Inline Forms

If you give a form an additional attribute [data-swup-inline-form], swup will:

  • update only that form when being submitted, ignoring the default containers.
  • scroll back to the beginning of the form
  • scope animations to the form itself

Note If you mark a form as an inline form, the form must have an id attribute

Example

HTML

<form id="form-1" class="transition-form" data-swup-form data-swup-inline-form method="POST">
  <input name="test"></input> <input type="submit"></input>
</form>

CSS

.transition-form.is-changing {
  transition: opacity 200ms;
}
.transition-form.is-animating {
  opacity: 0;
}

Options

formSelector

Type: String, Default: form[data-swup-form]

Customize the selector for forms which should be handled by swup.

inlineFormSelector

Type: String, Default: form[data-swup-inline-form]

Customize the selector for inline forms

stripEmptyParams

Type: Boolean, Default: false

Strip empty parameters from forms with action="GET" before submitting.

  • Before: ?foo=&bar=baz&bat=
  • After: ?bar=baz

Hooks

The plugin adds two new hooks to swup.

form:submit

Triggered when a form is submitted.

swup.hooks.on('form:submit', (visit, { el, event }) => {
  console.log(el);
});

form:submit:newtab

Triggered when a form is submitted to a new tab or window. This will happen if the user has pressed either the Command (Mac), Control (Windows) or Shift key while submitting the form. The plugin normalizes that behavior across browsers.
