verge

verge is a compact (<1k gzipped) set of cross-browser viewport utilities written in native JavaScript. It includes the ability to detect if an element is in the current viewport. It works as a standalone module, an ender module, or as a jQuery plugin.

installation

jQuery

jQuery.extend(verge); // augment jQuery with methods from verge

NPM

$ npm install verge

methods (1.5)

notes

In standalone usage, methods are available on the verge namespace: verge.scrollY(), ...

The docs below use $ to denote verge or a host lib (like jQuery or ender).

$.viewportW()

$.viewportW()            // Get the current viewport width (in pixels).

$.viewportH()

$.viewportH()            // Get the current viewport height (in pixels).

$.inViewport()

Test if any part of an element (or the first element in a matched set) is in the current viewport. Returns boolean.

$.inViewport(elem)       // true if elem is in the current viewport
$.inViewport(elem, 100)  // true if elem is in the current viewport or within 100px of it
$.inViewport(elem, -100) // true if elem is in the current viewport and not within 99px of the edge

Tip: If you're dealing with a page that only ever scrolls in one direction, it is faster to substitute inViewport with inY or inX. On pages that never scroll horizontally, inX always returns true. On pages that never scroll vertically, inY always returns true. In other words, use inY on sites that scroll only vertically, and inX on sites that scroll only horizontally. If the viewport width is greater than or equal to the document width, then inX will always return true.

$.inViewport(elem) === $.inX(elem) && $.inY(elem) // always true

$.inX()

Test if any part of an element (or the first element in a matched set) is in the same x-axis section as the viewport. Returns boolean.

$.inX(elem)       // true if elem is in same x-axis as the viewport (exact)
$.inX(elem, 100)  // true if elem is in same x-axis as the viewport or within 100px of it
$.inX(elem, -100) // true if elem in is the viewport and not within 99px of the edge

$.inY()

Test if any part of an element (or the first element in a matched set) is in the same y-axis section as the viewport. Returns boolean.

$.inY(elem)       // true if elem is in same y-axis as the viewport (exact)
$.inY(elem, 100)  // true if elem is in same y-axis as the viewport or within 100px of it
$.inY(elem, -100) // true if elem in is the viewport and not within 99px of the edge

$.rectangle()

The $.rectangle(elem [, verge]) method returns an a object containing the properties top, bottom, left, right, width, and height with respect to the top-left corner of the current viewport, and with an optional verge amount. Its return is like that of the native getBoundingClientRect (with the added assurance that all six properties will exist).

The optional verge parameter is an amount of pixels to act as a cushion around the element. If none is provided then it defaults to 0 and the rectangle will match the result of the native rectangle. If a verge is specified, the properties are adjusted according to the verge amount. If the verge is positive the rectangle will represent an area that is larger that the actual element. If the verge is negative then the rectangle will represent an area that is smaller that the actual element.

$.rectangle(elem)       // get elem's rectangle object
$.rectangle(elem, 100)  // get elem's rectangle object adjusted by 100 pixels
