react-spring-bottom-sheet is built on top of react-spring and react-use-gesture. It busts the myth that accessibility and supporting keyboard navigation and screen readers are allegedly at odds with delightful, beautiful and highly animated UIs. Every animation and transition is implemented using CSS custom properties instead of manipulating them directly, allowing complete control over the experience from CSS alone.



npm i react-spring-bottom-sheet


View demo code

MVP example, showing what you get by implementing open, onDismiss and a single snap point always set to minHeight.

Snap points & overflow

View demo code

A more elaborate example that showcases how snap points work. It also shows how it behaves if you want it to be open by default, and not closable. Notice how it responds if you resize the window, or scroll to the bottom and starts adjusting the height of the sheet without scrolling back up first.

Sticky header & footer

View demo code

If you provide either a header or footer prop you'll enable the special behavior seen in this example. And they're not just sticky positioned, both areas support touch gestures.

Non-blocking overlay mode

View demo code

In most cases you use a bottom sheet the same way you do with a dialog: you want it to overlay the page and block out distractions. But there are times when you want a bottom sheet but without it taking all the attention and overlaying the entire page. Providing blocking={false} helps this use case. By doing so you disable a couple of behaviors that are there for accessibility (focus-locking and more) that prevents a screen reader or a keyboard user from accidentally leaving the bottom sheet.

Get started



All props you provide, like className, style props or whatever else are spread onto the underlying <animated.div> instance, that you can style in your custom CSS using this selector: [data-rsbs-root].
Just note that the component is mounted in a @reach/portal at the bottom of <body>, and not in the DOM hierarchy you render it in.


Type: boolean

The only required prop. And it's controlled, so if you don't set this to false then it's not possible to close the bottom sheet.


Type: () => void

Called when the user do something that signal they want to dismiss the sheet:

  • hit the esc key.
  • tap on the backdrop.
  • swipes the sheet to the bottom of the viewport.


Type: (state) => number | number[]

This function should be pure as it's called often. You can choose to provide a single value or an array of values to customize the behavior. The state contains these values:

  • headerHeight – the current measured height of the header.
  • footerHeight – if a footer prop is provided then this is its height.
  • height – the current height of the sheet.
  • minHeight – the minimum height needed to avoid a scrollbar. If there's not enough height available to avoid it then this will be the same as maxHeight.
  • maxHeight – the maximum available height on the page, usually matches window.innerHeight/100vh.


Type: number | (state) => number

Provide either a number, or a callback returning a number for the default position of the sheet when it opens.
state use the same arguments as snapPoints, plus two more values: snapPoints and lastSnap.

Type: ReactNode

Supports the same value type as the children prop.

Type: ReactNode

Supports the same value type as the children prop.


Type: React.Ref

A react ref to the element you want to get keyboard focus when opening. If not provided it's automatically selecting the first interactive element it finds.


Type: boolean

Enabled by default. Enables focus trapping of keyboard navigation, so you can't accidentally tab out of the bottom sheet and into the background. Also sets aria-hidden on the rest of the page to prevent Screen Readers from escaping as well.


Methods available when setting a ref on the sheet:

export default function Example() {
  const sheetRef = React.useRef()
  return <BottomSheet open ref={sheetRef} />


Type: (numberOrCallback: number | (state => number)) => void

Same signature as the defaultSnap prop, calling it will animate the sheet to the new snap point you return. You can either call it with a number, which is the height in px (it'll select the closest snap point that matches your value): ref.current.snapTo(200). Or ref.current.snapTo(({headerHeight, footerHeight, height, minHeight, maxHeight, snapPoints, lastSnap}) => Math.max(...snapPoints)).
