Smooth Scroll Snapping Framework Agnostic Library | PanelSnap

PANELSNAP is a JavaScript plugin that, after scrolling, snaps onto blocks of content that I like to call panels. Its API makes it easy to design the plugin according to the needs of your project. Each of the following panels will explain a specific aspect of the PanelSnap plug-in.

PanelSnap is a JavaScript library that does not depend on the framework. This means that it works in every JavaScript project, whether you’re using Vue, React, jQuery, or plain vanilla JavaScript. It can capture both horizontally and vertically, call menus, and fire events based on user behavior.

How to make use of it:

<!-- jQuery Is Optional -->
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<!-- panelSnap Plugin -->
<script src="/path/to/lib/panelsnap.umd.js"></script>

3. Create a set of panels you need to scroll.

section {
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
  width: 100%;
  min-height: 100vh;

5. Enable the plugin.

new PanelSnap();

5. Possible choices to customize the plugin.

new PanelSnap({

    // parent container
    container: document.body,

    // panel selector
    panelSelector: '> section',

    // threshold
    directionThreshold: 50,

    // scroll delay
    delay: 0,

    // duration in milliseconds
    duration: 300,

    // easing function
    easing: function(t) { return t }
