What it is
This wrapper adds a modal preview to links or buttons -- on long-press -- that displays any react component you provide.
A small progress bar shows the long-press progress.
This is a very simple component that wraps the
react-router-dom <Link /> component with a bit of added functionality.
How it works
Wrap any link or button with
<LinkPreview></LinkPreview to get a modal pop-up preview of the component you supply.
This might be the react route component you intend to send the user to, or another component with useful preview information.
This component is intended for use on mobile devices primarily, but can be toggled to be used on desktop as well.
