    Features

    • easy-to-use directive: scroll to an element referenced in the href-attribute (href="#mytarget) just by adding pageScroll directive
    • service usage: trigger scroll animations from your component or when server responds
    • customizable: adjust duration, offset or whether scrolling stops if the user interrupts (read more)
    • use custom easing functions to calculate the scroll position over time
    • works across routes (scrolls to target element as soon as the routing has finished) and in both directions (horizontal/vertical)

    Setup

    First you need to install the npm module:

    npm install ng2-page-scroll --save

    Then add the Ng2PageScrollModule to the imports array of your application module:

    import {Ng2PageScrollModule} from 'ng2-page-scroll';
     
    @NgModule({
        imports: [
            /* Other imports here */
            Ng2PageScrollModule
            ]
    })
    export class AppModule {
    }

    To ensure there's only one instance of a PageScrollService (Singleton) it is recommended to add the PageScrollService to only one Injector, preferably the root injector of the application. You may read more about angular dependency injection hierarchy at their documentation.

    Finally you need to specify how your application should load the ng2-page-scroll library:

    Angular modules

    All the compiled JavaScript files use ES2015 module format, so they are ready for usage with RollupJS. However, you cannot use them with SystemJS.

    .metadata.json files are generated for usage with Angular AoT compiler.

    SystemJS

    UMD bundles are available for SystemJS loading. Example:

    System.config({
        paths: {
            'npm:': 'node_modules/'
        },
        map: {
            app: 'app',
     
            '@angular/core'   : 'npm:@angular/core/bundles/core.umd.js',
            '@angular/common' : 'npm:@angular/common/bundles/common.umd.js',
            // further angular bundles...
     
            'ng2-page-scroll': 'npm:ng2-page-scroll/bundles/ng2-page-scroll.umd.js',
     
            rxjs: 'npm:rxjs',
        },
        packages: {
            app : {defaultExtension: 'js', main: './main.js'},
            rxjs: {defaultExtension: 'js'}
        }
    });
    import {Ng2PageScrollModule} from 'ng2-page-scroll';
     
    @NgModule({
        imports: [
            /* Other imports here */
            Ng2PageScrollModule
            ]
    })
    export class AppModule {
    }

    Usage

    Directive

    In your template you may add the pageScroll attribute to elements with an href attribute pointing towards an id on the same page (e.g. #theId). The onClick event will be interrupted and the scroll animation starts. Alternatively you may set the optional pageScrolllTarget property to a valid css selector to specify the target element to scroll to.

     
    @Component({
       ...
       template: `...
            <a pageScroll href="#awesomePart">Take me to the awesomeness</a>
            <!-- Further content here -->
            <h2 id="awesomePart">This is where the awesome happens</h2>
       ...`,
    })
    export class MyComponent {
    }

    Service

    You may use the service for more advanced scroll animations. Using the service you may trigger scroll animations on any custom event or more complex configuration. Possible use cases are server responses or after content initialization.

    Start by obtaining a reference to the PageScrollService instance by adding it to your component's constructor. The PageScrollService offers a start() method to trigger PageScrollInstances. A PageScrollInstance is an object encapsulating all information relevant for performing a scroll animation. You may create a new PageScrollInstance by using the provided factory methods PageScrollInstance#simpleInstance and PageScrollInstance#newInstance.

    import { Component, Inject, ViewChild, ElementRef } from '@angular/core';
    import { DOCUMENT} from '@angular/common';
    import { PageScrollConfig, PageScrollService, PageScrollInstance } from 'ng2-page-scroll';
     
    @Component({
        template: `
            <p>Main content</p>
            <!-- Further content here -->
            <h2 id="head2">Part in a container</h2>
            <div #container>
                <p>Container content</p>
                <h3 id="head3">Heading</h3>
            </div>`
    })
    export class MyComponent {
     
         @ViewChild('container')
         private container: ElementRef;
     
         constructor(private pageScrollService: PageScrollService, @Inject(DOCUMENT) private document: any) {
         }
     
         public goToHead2(): void {
             let pageScrollInstance: PageScrollInstance = PageScrollInstance.simpleInstance(this.document, '#head2');
             this.pageScrollService.start(pageScrollInstance);
         };    
         
         public scrollSomewhereHorizontally(): void {
             let pageScrollInstance: PageScrollInstance = PageScrollInstance.newInstance({document: this.document, scrollTarget: '#targetToTheRight', verticalScrolling: false});
             this.pageScrollService.start(pageScrollInstance);
         }; 
     
         public goToHeadingInContainer(): void {
             let pageScrollInstance: PageScrollInstance = PageScrollInstance.newInstance({document: this.document, scrollTarget: '.headingClass', scrollingViews: [this.container.nativeElement]});
             this.pageScrollService.start(pageScrollInstance);
         };
     }

    The PageScrollInstance#newInstance method takes a PageScrollOptions object. Most attributes are the same as attributes for the directive. Refer to the sources for a detailed list of options.

    Configuration

    The class PageScrollConfig offers static properties to be manipulated to configure the default behavior. Override the respective properties to change all page scroll-animation defaults.

    Configuration Option Type Default Description
    defaultScrollOffset number 0 Pixels to offset from the top of the element when scrolling to (positive value = scrolling will stop given pixels atop the target element).
    defaultIsVerticalScrolling boolean true Whether the scroll should happen to the target element in vertical direction (true, default) or horizontal (false)
    defaultDuration number 1250 Duration in milliseconds the whole scroll-animation should last.
    defaultInterruptible boolean true Whether the scroll animation should stop if the user interferes with it (true) or not (false).
    defaultEasingLogic EasingLogic linearEasing Easing method to be used while calculating the scroll position over time (default is linear easing).

    Example

    import {PageScrollConfig} from 'ng2-page-scroll';
     
    export class AppComponent {
        constructor() {
            PageScrollConfig.defaultScrollOffset = 50;
            PageScrollConfig.defaultEasingLogic = {
                ease: (t: number, b: number, c: number, d: number): number => {
                    // easeInOutExpo easing
                    if (t === 0) return b;
                    if (t === d) return b + c;
                    if ((t /= d / 2) < 1) return c / 2 * Math.pow(2, 10 * (t - 1)) + b;
                    return c / 2 * (-Math.pow(2, -10 * --t) + 2) + b;
                }
            };
        }
    }

    Directive API

    Additional attributes may be set on an DOM element using the pageScroll directive for customization. They take precedence over the default settings specified in PageScrollConfig class. Thereby it is possible to have all page scroll-animations last e.g. 2 seconds, but a specific one should be performed with a custom easing function and a duration of only 1 second.

    PageScroll properties

    Attribute Type Default Description
    pageScroll Attribute adding scroll-animation behavior when the click-event happens on the element.
    pageScrollTarget string Optional attribute to set the element that should be scrolled to. Takes precedence over the ´href´-value
    pageScrollHorizontal boolean false Whether the scroll should happen in vertical direction (false, default) or horizontal (true).
    pageScrollOffset number 0 Pixels to offset from the top of the element when scrolling to (positive value = scrolling will stop given pixels atop the target element).
    pageScrollDuration number 1250 Duration in milliseconds the whole scroll-animation should last.
    pageScrollSpeed number - Speed in Pixel/Second the animation should take. Only applied if no duration is set.
    pageScrollInterruptible boolean true Whether the scroll animation should stop if the user interferes with it (true) or not (false).
    pageScrollAdjustHash boolean false Whether the routes hash/fragment should be updated to reflect to section that has been scrolled to
    pageScrollEasing EasingLogic linearEasing Easing method to be used while calculating the scroll position over time (default is linear easing).

    PageScroll events

    Event Type Description
    pageScrollFinish boolean Fired when the scroll-animation stops. Emits a boolean value which indicates whether the scroll animation finished successfully and reached its target (true) or not (false). Possible reasons for false: target not found or interrupted due to another scroll animation starting or user interaction.

    Example

    The following example will check whether the route Home is currently loaded. If this is true, the scroll-animation will be performed with the default properties. If a different route is loaded, a subscription for route changes will be made and the scroll-animation will be performed as soon as the new route is loaded.

     <a pageScroll [routerLink]="['Home']" href="#myanchor">Go there</a>

    Overriding all possible properties. doSmth() and myEasing are defined in the component

     <a pageScroll [pageScrollOffset]="0" [pageScrollDuration]="2000" [pageScrollEasing]="myEasing" [pageScrollInterruptible]="false" (pageScrollFinish)="doSmth($event)" href="#theanchor">Visit</a>
        myEasingEasingLogic = {
            ease: (t: number, b: number, c: number, d: number): number => {
                // easeInOutExpo easing
                if (t === 0) return b;
                if (t === d) return b + c;
                if ((t /= d / 2) < 1) return c / 2 * Math.pow(2, 10 * (t - 1)) + b;
                return c / 2 * (-Math.pow(2, -10 * --t) + 2) + b;
            }
        };
     
        doSmth(reachedTargetboolean)void {
            if (reachedTarget) {
                console.log('Yeah, we reached our destination');
            } else {
                console.log('Ohoh, something interrupted us');
            }
        }
