Snap Scroll in React in Less than a Minute

Motivation:

We all have seen website which uses snap scrolling from one section to another traditionally we can do Animation in CSS and write a ton styles to achieve that Let's do that within a Minute with help of react-use-scroll-snap.

Installation:

we just need to create a new react app and install react-use-scroll-snap.

npx create-react-app test-app
yarn add react-use-scroll-snap
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Usage:

Import useScrollSnap hook and pass the ref of the component.
I'm using default react app duplication header and just changing the page name for simplicity you can use your components.

import { useRef } from "react";
import useScrollSnap from "react-use-scroll-snap";
import logo from "./logo.svg";
import "./App.css";

function App() {
  const scrollRef = useRef(null);
  useScrollSnap({ ref: scrollRef, duration: 50, delay: 20 });
  return (
    <div className="App" ref={scrollRef}>
      <header className="App-header">
        <img src={logo} className="App-logo" alt="logo" />
        <p>Page 1</p>
      </header>
      <header className="App-header">
        <img src={logo} className="App-logo" alt="logo" />
        <p>page 2</p>
      </header>
      <header className="App-header">
        <img src={logo} className="App-logo" alt="logo" />
        <p>Page 3</p>
      </header>
    </div>
  );
}

export default App;

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

That's it we have snap scroll in our app. This post is focust on react you can do same thing for Vanilla JS with scroll-snap Cheers.
