React Scrolling NavBar npm

This Repo is not actively maintained! Please do not use in professional environment!

This is a React navbar component based on react-scroll. While this component is good, it doesn't support mobile well, especially when there are many items in navbar. That's why we need another navbar design for more responsiveness, mobile friendliness.

A quick screenshot example is shown below. desktop

A live example is here and code in ES6.


$ npm install --save react-scrolling-nav

Run Example locally

$ npm install
$ npm run watch

Open localhost:8080, you'll see a simple example.



import React, { Component } from "react";
import NavBar, { ElementsWrapper } from "react-scrolling-nav";

class App extends Component {
  render() {
    const navbarItems = [
        label: "Item 1",
        target: "item-1"
        label: "Item 2",
        target: "item-2"
        label: "Item 3",
        target: "item-3"
        label: "Item 4",
        target: "item-4"
        label: "Item 5",
        target: "item-5"
        label: "Item 6",
        target: "item-6"
    return (
        <NavBar items={navbarItems} offset={-80} duration={500} delay={0} />
        <div className="container">
          <ElementsWrapper items={navbarItems}>
            <div name="item-1" className="item">
              item 1
            <div name="item-2" className="item">
              item 2
            <div name="item-3" className="item">
              item 3
            <div name="item-4" className="item">
              item 4
            <div name="item-5" className="item">
              item 5
            <div name="item-6" className="item">
              item 6

export default App;

Define an array that contains all of your navbar items in format { label: "item1", target: "item-1" }, where label is the text that you want to show on the navbar, and target is mapped to the name property in ElementWrapper. You should wrap all of the components to which you want to be navigated into ElementWrapper.


    items={navbarItems} // Required, the items you want to navigate
    offset={-80} // scroll additional px
    duration={500} // time of scroll animation
    delay={0} // wait x milliseconds before scroll
    height={70} // the height of navbar
    backgroundColor={"#222"} // the background color of navbar
    coverWidth={600} // the width of the gradient cover, default is calculated by (navWidth * count of navItems)
    navWidth={86} // the width of every item on navbar
    linkClass={"link"} // the class of link
    activeLinkClass={"activeLink"} // class applied when element is reached

    items={items={navbarItems}} // Required, the items you want to navigate
    // components...

Except coverWidth, all values above are the default, respectively.
