    Why it's better

    • Take performance in mind, only 2 event listeners for all lazy-loaded components
    • Support both one-time lazy load and continuous lazy load mode
    • scroll / resize event handler is throttled so you won't suffer frequent update, you can switch to debounce mode too
    • Decorator supported
    • Server Side Rendering friendly
    • Thoroughly tested

    Installation

    2.0.0 is finally out, read Upgrade Guide, it's almost painless to upgrade! 3.0.0 fixes the findDomNode warning through usage of React ref, and the following are the changes you need to be aware of

    • Now we have an extra div wrapping the lazy loaded component for the React ref to work
    • We can understand that it is an extra DOM node, and we are working to optimize that if possible
    • It might break your UI or snapshot tests based on your usage
    • To customize the styling to the extra div please refer here
    • Found any other problem, please feel free to leave a comment over here
    $ npm install --save react-lazyload
    

    Usage

    import React from 'react';
    import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
    import LazyLoad from 'react-lazyload';
    import MyComponent from './MyComponent';
    
    const App = () => {
      return (
        <div className="list">
          <LazyLoad height={200}>
            <img src="tiger.jpg" /> /*
                                      Lazy loading images is supported out of box,
                                      no extra config needed, set `height` for better
                                      experience
                                     */
          </LazyLoad>
          <LazyLoad height={200} once >
                                    /* Once this component is loaded, LazyLoad will
                                     not care about it anymore, set this to `true`
                                     if you're concerned about improving performance */
            <MyComponent />
          </LazyLoad>
          <LazyLoad height={200} offset={100}>
                                  /* This component will be loaded when it's top
                                     edge is 100px from viewport. It's useful to
                                     make user ignorant about lazy load effect. */
            <MyComponent />
          </LazyLoad>
          <LazyLoad>
            <MyComponent />
          </LazyLoad>
        </div>
      );
    };
    
    ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.body);

    If you want to have your component lazyloaded by default, try this handy decorator:

    import { lazyload } from 'react-lazyload';
    
    @lazyload({
      height: 200,
      once: true,
      offset: 100
    })
    class MyComponent extends React.Component {
      render() {
        return <div>this component is lazyloaded by default!</div>;
      }
    }

    Special Tips

    You should be aware that your component will only be mounted when it's visible in viewport, before that a placeholder will be rendered.

    So you can safely send request in your component's componentDidMount without worrying about performance loss or add some pretty entering effects, see this demo for more detail.

    Props

    children

    Type: Node Default: undefined

    NOTICE Only one child is allowed to be passed.

    scrollContainer

    Type: String/DOM node Default: undefined

    Pass a query selector string or DOM node. LazyLoad will attach to the window object's scroll events if no container is passed.

    height

    Type: Number/String Default: undefined

    In the first round of render, LazyLoad will render a placeholder for your component if no placeholder is provided and measure if this component is visible. Set height properly will make LazyLoad calculate more precisely. The value can be number or string like '100%'. You can also use css to set the height of the placeholder instead of using height.

    once

    Type: Bool Default: false

    Once the lazy loaded component is loaded, do not detect scroll/resize event anymore. Useful for images or simple components.

    offset

    Type: Number/Array(Number) Default: 0

    Say if you want to preload a component even if it's 100px below the viewport (user have to scroll 100px more to see this component), you can set offset props to 100. On the other hand, if you want to delay loading a component even if it's top edge has already appeared at viewport, set offset to negative number.

    Library supports horizontal lazy load out of the box. So when you provide this prop with number like 100 it will automatically set left edge offset to 100 and top edge to 100;

    If you provide this prop with array like [100, 200], it will set left edge offset to 100 and top offset to 200.

    scroll

    Type: Bool Default: true

    Listen and react to scroll event.

    resize

    Type: Bool Default: false

    Respond to resize event, set it to true if you do need LazyLoad listen resize event.

    NOTICE If you tend to support legacy IE, set this props carefully, refer to this question for further reading.

    overflow

    Type: Bool Default: false

    If lazy loading components inside a overflow container, set this to true. Also make sure a position property other than static has been set to your overflow container.

    demo

    placeholder

    Type: Any Default: undefined

    Specify a placeholder for your lazy loaded component.

    demo

    If you provide your own placeholder, do remember add appropriate height or minHeight to your placeholder element for better lazyload performance.

    unmountIfInvisible

    Type: Bool Default: false

    The lazy loaded component is unmounted and replaced by the placeholder when it is no longer visible in the viewport.

    debounce/throttle

    Type: Bool / Number Default: undefined

    Lazyload will try to use passive event by default to improve scroll/resize event handler's performance. If you prefer control this behaviour by yourself, you can set debounce or throttle to enable built in delay feature.

    If you provide a number, that will be how many ms to wait; if you provide true, the wait time defaults to 300ms.

    NOTICE Set debounce / throttle to all lazy loaded components unanimously, if you don't, the first occurrence is respected.

    demo

    classNamePrefix

    Type: String Default: lazyload

    While rendering, Lazyload will add some elements to the component tree in addition to the wrapped component children.

    The classNamePrefix prop allows the user to supply their own custom class prefix to help: # Avoid class conflicts on an implementing app # Allow easier custom styling

    These being: # A wrapper div, which is present at all times (default )

    style

    Type: Object Default: undefined

    Similar to classNamePrefix, the style prop allows users to pass custom CSS styles to wrapper div.

    wheel

    DEPRECATED NOTICE This props is not supported anymore, try set overflow for lazy loading in overflow containers.

    Utility

    forceCheck

    It is available to manually trigger checking for elements in viewport. Helpful when LazyLoad components enter the viewport without resize or scroll events, e.g. when the components' container was hidden then become visible.

    Import forceCheck:

    import { forceCheck } from 'react-lazyload';

    Then call the function:

    forceCheck();

    forceVisible

    Forces the component to display regardless of whether the element is visible in the viewport.

    import { forceVisible } from 'react-lazyload';

    Then call the function:

    forceVisible();

    Scripts

    $ npm run demo:watch
    $ npm run build
    

    Who should use it

    Let's say there is a fixed date picker on the page, when user picks a different date, all components displaying data should send ajax requests with new date parameter to retreive updated data, even many of them aren't visible in viewport. This makes server load furious when there are too many requests in one time.

    Using LazyLoad component will help ease this situation by only updating components visible in viewport.
