ScrollSizeObserver

ScrollSizeObserver is a lightweight JavaScript library that provides a simple and efficient way to observe changes to elements' scrollWidth and scrollHeight properties. It offers a similar API to ResizeObserver.

Features

  • Easy Integration: Simple to integrate into existing projects with minimal setup.
  • Flexible Configuration: Offers options to observe horizontal and/or vertical scroll sizes based on requirements.
  • Efficient Observations: Utilizes modern browser APIs to efficiently track changes without impacting performance.
  • Cross-Browser Compatibility: Compatible with major modern browsers, ensuring consistent behavior across different environments.
  • TypeScript Support: Provides full support for TypeScript, enabling type-checking and enhanced development experience.
  • Lightweight: Zero-dependency minimal footprint ensures fast loading times and optimal performance.

Demo

Installation

You can install ScrollSizeObserver via npm:

npm install scroll-size-observer

Usage

import { ScrollSizeObserver } from 'scroll-size-observer'

// Just like `ResizeObserver`
const observer = new ScrollSizeObserver((entries, observer) => {
  entries.forEach((entry) => {
    console.log('Target element:', entry.target)
    console.log('New scrollWidth:', entry.scrollWidth)
    console.log('New scrollHeight:', entry.scrollHeight)
    console.log('Previous scrollWidth:', entry.previousScrollWidth)
    console.log('Previous scrollHeight:', entry.previousScrollHeight)
  })
})

// Observe an element
observer.observe(elementToObserve)

// Observe only `scrollHeight`
observer.observe(elementToObserve, { scrollWidth: false })

// Unobserve an element
observer.unobserve(elementToUnobserve)

// Unobserve all observed elements
observer.disconnect()
