Readme

ngx-infinite-scroller

Infinite and bidirectional scroll directive for Angular 11

All notable changes to this project are documented in CHANGELOG.md file.

Installation

Run npm install ngx-infinite-scroller --save to install the library.

Usage

*.module.ts configuration

Include NgxInfiniteScrollerModule in your module

import { NgxInfiniteScrollerModule } from 'ngx-infinite-scroller';

@NgModule({
  declarations: [],
  imports: [
    NgxInfiniteScrollerModule,
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: []
})

*.component.html configuration

Include ngxInfiniteScroller directive in your *.component.html file

<ul id="scroller"
    ngxInfiniteScroller
    strategy="scrollingToBoth"
    (onScrollUp)="onScrollUp()"
    (onScrollDown)="onScrollDown()">
  <li class="news"
      *ngFor="let item of news">
    {{item.title}}
  </li>
</ul>

By default the directive works as an infinite scroll from the top to the bottom of your list. To switch to other modes, use input parameters like:
strategy="scrollingToTop"
strategy="scrollingToBottom" (default)
strategy="scrollingToBoth"

Default value of initial scroll position depends on the strategy value:
strategy="scrollingToTop" -> initialScrollPosition="BOTTOM"
strategy="scrollingToBoth" -> initialScrollPosition="MIDDLE"
strategy="scrollingToBottom" -> initialScrollPosition="TOP"

It is also possible to customize the default behaviour using an optional input field:
initialScrollPosition="TOP"
initialScrollPosition="MIDDLE"
initialScrollPosition="BOTTOM"
initialScrollPosition="50" (position in px)

*.component.ts configuration

Handle onScrollUp and onScrollDown actions in your *.component.ts file

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';

import { Observable } from 'rxjs';
import { share, finalize } from 'rxjs/operators';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.scss']
})
export class AppComponent implements OnInit {

  public news: Array<any> = [];

  private currentPage = 1;

  private request$: Observable<any>;

  constructor(private http: HttpClient) { }

  public ngOnInit() {
    this.getNews(this.currentPage)
      .pipe(finalize(() => this.onFinalize()))
      .subscribe((news) => {
        this.currentPage++;
        this.news = this.news.concat(news);
      });
  }

  public onScrollUp(): void {
    this.getNews(this.currentPage)
      .pipe(finalize(() => this.onFinalize()))
      .subscribe((news) => {
        this.currentPage++;
        this.news = news.concat(this.news);
      });
  }

  public onScrollDown(): void {
    this.getNews(this.currentPage)
      .pipe(finalize(() => this.onFinalize()))
      .subscribe((news) => {
        this.currentPage++;
        this.news = this.news.concat(news);
      });
  }

  // Prevent duplicate requests on scroll.

  private getNews(page: number = 1): Observable<any> {
    if (this.request$) {
      return this.request$;
    } else {
      this.request$ = this.http.get(`https://node-hnapi.herokuapp.com/news?page=${page}`).pipe(share());
      return this.request$;
    }
  }

  private onFinalize(): void {
    this.request$ = null;
  }
}
