v-endless-list

Minimalistic and tiny Vue.js scroll list components for an endless amount of data

Note: Version 3.x of v-endless-list is compatible with Vue 3 only. Install version 2.x if you use Vue 2.

Provides two components:

  • v-endless-virtual-list: Renders only items in the viewport for performance. Supports lazy loading and jumping to given items. Requires fixed item height. Recommended for extremely large data sets.

  • v-endless-lazy-list: Simple list with lazy loading. Supports variable height items but is less efficient for large data sets (slower when scrolling far down). Recommended for small to medium data sets.

Installation

Install v-endless-list:

npm install --save v-endless-list

Then import it in your project:

import { createApp, h } from 'vue';
 
const app = Vue.createApp(App);
app.use(vEndlessList, { h });
app.mount('#app');

Or include the files via <script> tag:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/vue@3.0.0/dist/vue.global.prod.js"></script>
<script src="https://unpkg.com/v-endless-list/dist/vEndlessList.min.js"></script>
<script>
    const app = Vue.createApp(App);
    app.use(vEndlessList, { h: Vue.h });
    app.mount('#app');
</script> 

Usage

Most basic usage example for both components (read about Vue Scoped Slots to understand the syntax):

<v-endless-virtual-list :items="items" item-height="100">
    <template #default="item">
        <div>{{ item }}</div>
    </template>
</v-endless-virtual-list>
<v-endless-lazy-list :items="items">
    <template #default="item">
        <div>{{ item }}</div>
    </template>
</v-endless-lazy-list>

Advanced usage example for both components:

<v-endless-virtual-list
    :items="items"
    height="50vh"
    item-height="100"
    @reached-bottom="lazyLoadItems()"
>
    <template #empty-list>
        <b>No items in this list.</b>
    </template>
    <template #default="item">
        <my-component :my-data="item.myData"></my-component>
    </template>
</v-endless-virtual-list>
<v-endless-lazy-list
    :items="items"
    height="50vh"
    increment="100"
    loading-threshold="42"
    list-change-behavior="keep"
    @reached-top="onReachedTop()"
>
    <template #empty-list>
        <b>No items in this list.</b>
    </template>
    <template #default="item">
        <my-component :my-data="item.myData"></my-component>
    </template>
</v-endless-lazy-list>
