    Api

    Use the hook and set your swipe(d) handlers.

    const handlers = useSwipeable({
      onSwiped: (eventData) => console.log("User Swiped!", eventData),
      ...config,
    });
    return <div {...handlers}> You can swipe here </div>;

    Spread handlers onto the element you wish to track swipes on.

    Props / Config Options

    Event handler props

    {
      onSwiped,       // After any swipe   (SwipeEventData) => void
      onSwipedLeft,   // After LEFT swipe  (SwipeEventData) => void
      onSwipedRight,  // After RIGHT swipe (SwipeEventData) => void
      onSwipedUp,     // After UP swipe    (SwipeEventData) => void
      onSwipedDown,   // After DOWN swipe  (SwipeEventData) => void
      onSwipeStart,   // Start of swipe    (SwipeEventData) => void *see details*
      onSwiping,      // During swiping    (SwipeEventData) => void
      onTap,          // After a tap       ({ event }) => void
    }

    Details

    • onSwipeStart - called only once per swipe at the start and before the first onSwiping callback
      • The first property of the SwipeEventData will be true

    Configuration props and default values

    {
      delta: 10,                            // min distance(px) before a swipe starts
      preventDefaultTouchmoveEvent: false,  // call e.preventDefault *See Details*
      trackTouch: true,                     // track touch input
      trackMouse: false,                    // track mouse input
      rotationAngle: 0,                     // set a rotation angle
    }

    Swipe Event Data

    All Event Handlers are called with the below event data, SwipeEventData.

    {
      event,          // source event
      initial,        // initial swipe [x,y]
      first,          // true for first event
      deltaX,         // x offset (current.x - initial.x)
      deltaY,         // y offset (current.y - initial.y)
      absX,           // absolute deltaX
      absY,           // absolute deltaY
      velocity,       // √(absX^2 + absY^2) / time - "absolute velocity" (speed)
      vxvy,           // [ deltaX/time, deltaY/time] - velocity per axis
      dir,            // direction of swipe (Left|Right|Up|Down)
    }

    None of the props/config options are required.

    Hook details

    • Hook use requires react >= 16.8.3
    • The props contained in handlers are currently ref and onMouseDown
      • Please spread handlers as the props contained in it could change as react improves event listening capabilities

    preventDefaultTouchmoveEvent details

    This prop allows you to prevent the browser's touchmove event default action, mostly "scrolling".

    Use this to stop scrolling in the browser while a user swipes.

    • You can additionally try touch-action css property, see below

    e.preventDefault() is only called when:

    • preventDefaultTouchmoveEvent: true
    • trackTouch: true
    • the users current swipe has an associated onSwiping or onSwiped handler/prop

    Example scenario:

    If a user is swiping right with props { onSwipedRight: userSwipedRight, preventDefaultTouchmoveEvent: true } then e.preventDefault() will be called, but if the user was swiping left then e.preventDefault() would not be called.

    Please experiment with the example app to test preventDefaultTouchmoveEvent.

    passive listener

    With v6 we've added the passive event listener option, by default, to internal uses of addEventListener. We set the passive option to false only when preventDefaultTouchmoveEvent is true.

    When preventDefaultTouchmoveEvent is:

    • true => el.addEventListener(event, cb, { passive: false })
    • false => el.addEventListener(event, cb, { passive: true })

    React's long running passive event issue.

    We previously had issues with chrome lighthouse performance deducting points for not having passive option set.

    Browser Support

    The release of v6 react-swipeable we only support browsers that support options object for addEventListener, Browser compatibility. Which mainly means react-swipeable does not support ie11 by default, you need to polyfill options. For example using event-listener-with-options.

    Version 6 Updates and migration

    If upgrading from v5 or later please refer to the release notes and the v6 migration doc

    v6 now only exports a hook, useSwipeable.

    If would like something similar to the old <Swipeable> component you can recreate it from the hook. There are examples in the migration doc.

    FAQs

    How can I add a swipe listener to the document?

    Example by @merrywhether #180

    const { ref } = useSwipeable({
      ...
    }) as { ref: RefCallback<Document> };
    
    useEffect(() => {
      ref(document);
    });

    How to share ref from useSwipeable?

    Example ref passthrough, more details #189:

    const MyComponent = () => {
      const handlers = useSwipeable({ onSwiped: () => console.log('swiped') })
    
      // setup ref for your usage
      const myRef = React.useRef();
    
      const refPassthrough = (el) => {
        // call useSwipeable ref prop with el
        handlers.ref(el);
    
        // set myRef el so you can access it yourself
        myRef.current = el;
      }
    
      return (<div {...handlers} ref={refPassthrough} />
    }

    How to use touch-action to prevent scrolling?

    Sometimes you don't want the body of your page to scroll along with the user manipulating or swiping an item.

    You might try to prevent the event default action via preventDefaultTouchmoveEvent, which calls event.preventDefault(). But there may be a simpler, more effective solution, which has to do with a simple CSS property.

    touch-action is a CSS property that sets how an element's region can be manipulated by a touchscreen user.

    const handlers = useSwipeable({
      onSwiped: (eventData) => console.log("User Swiped!", evenData),
      ...config,
    });
    return <div {...handlers} style={{ touchAction: 'pan-y' }}> Swipe here </div>;

    This explanation and example borrowed from use-gesture's wonderful docs.
