    react-bottom-scroll-listener npm NPM version npm bundle size (minified)

    A simple React hook and React component that lets you listen for when you have scrolled to the bottom.






    npm: npm install react-bottom-scroll-listener

    yarn: yarn add react-bottom-scroll-listener

    Migrating to V5

    Version 5 is only a refactor for the hook to use an options parameter, instead of relying of function parameters which were starting to get out of hand.

    If you are using the component, there are no breaking changes

    If your hook looks like this:

    useBottomScrollListener(callback, 0, 200, undefined, true);

    You will have to change it to use the options parameter:

    useBottomScrollListener(callback, {
      offset: 100,
      debounce: 0,
      triggerOnNoScroll: true

    Remember that you can omit any values that are using the defaults! The defaults are ase following:

      offset: 0,
      debounce: 200,
      debounceOptions: { leading: true },
      triggerOnNoScroll: false,

    So for the average use case, you are probably only setting one of these values, so your hook might look like this:

    useBottomScrollListener(callback, { triggerOnNoScroll: true })

    You can refer to the Usage-section for more details.



    Full example

    On bottom of entire screen

    Use the hook in any functional component, the callback will be invoked when the user scrolls to the bottom of the document

    import { useBottomScrollListener } from 'react-bottom-scroll-listener';

    On bottom of specific container

    Use the hook in any functional component, use the ref given from the hook and pass it to the element you want to use as a scroll container

    The callback will be invoked when the user scrolls to the bottom of the container

    import { useBottomScrollListener } from 'react-bottom-scroll-listener';
    const scrollRef = useBottomScrollListener(callback);
    <div ref={scrollRef}>Callback will be invoked when this container is scrolled to bottom.</div>;


    useBottomScrollListener<T extends HTMLElement>(
      // Required callback that will be invoked when scrolled to bottom
      onBottom: () => void,
      // Options, entirely optional, you can provide one or several to overwrite the defaults
      options?: {
        // Offset from bottom of page in pixels. E.g. 300 will trigger onBottom 300px from the bottom of the page
        offset?: number
        // Optional debounce in milliseconds, defaults to 200ms
        debounce?: number
        // Overwrite the debounceOptions for lodash.debounce, default to { leading: true }
        debounceOptions?: DebounceOptions
        // If container is too short, enables a trigger of the callback if that happens, defaults to false
        triggerOnNoScroll?: boolean
    ); // returns React.MutableRefObject Optionally you can use this to pass to a element to use that as the scroll container


    Full example

    On bottom of entire screen

    Simply have the BottomScrollListener anywhere in your application and pass it a function as onBottom-prop.

    import BottomScrollListener from 'react-bottom-scroll-listener';
    <BottomScrollListener onBottom={callback} />;

    On bottom of specific container

    Pass the BottomScrollListener a function inside the JSX_tag, receive the scrollRef in this function from the BottomScrollListener and pass it to the component you want to listen for a scroll event on.

    import BottomScrollListener from 'react-bottom-scroll-listener';
    <BottomScrollListener onBottom={callback}>
      {(scrollRef) => <div ref={scrollRef}>Callback will be invoked when this container is scrolled to bottom.</div>}

    Those are some weird children, what's going on?

    This pattern is called "function as a child". What this allows is that the BottomScrollListener can pass you a React.RefObject. This React.RefObject can then be passed to whatever component you want to be notified when you hit the bottom of. Without this it would be difficult to attach event listeners for scrolling to an arbitrary element.


    Property Type Default Description
    onBottom Function null (required): callback invoked when bottom is reached
    debounce number 200 milliseconds, how much debounce there should be on the callback
    offset number 0 offset from bottom in pixels. E.g. 300 if it should invoke onBottom 300px before the bottom.
    debounceOptions DebounceOptions {leading: true} see the lodash.debounce options: see
    triggerOnNoScroll boolean false if container is too short, enables a trigger of the callback if that happens
    children React.Node or Function null Not required, but you can use this to wrap your components. Most useful when you have some conditional rendering. If this is a function, that function will receive a React.RefObject that needs to be passed to a child element. This element will then be used as the scroll container.

    Migrating from 2.x.x to 3.x.x

    There are no breaking changes except that the required version of React is now 16.8.0. If you are on an older version of React you can either upgrade React, or stay on version 2.x.x. If you already are on a newer version of React you don't have to do anything, except maybe try out the new hook implementation. :)
