$ yarn add react-on-screen

Usage

Simple

import React from 'react';
import TrackVisibility from 'react-on-screen';

const ComponentToTrack = ({ isVisible }) => {
    const style = {
        background: isVisible ? 'red' : 'blue'
    };
    return <div style={style}>Hello</div>;
}

const YourApp = () => {
    return (
       {/* Some Stuff */}
        <TrackVisibility>
            <ComponentToTrack />
        </TrackVisibility>
       {/* Some Stuff */}
    );
}

Using a render props

You can use a render props is you want to !

const YourApp = () => {
    return (
        <TrackVisibility>
            {({ isVisible }) => isVisible && <ComponentToTrack />}
        </TrackVisibility>
    );
}

Track the visibility only once

For many cases you may want to track the visibility only once. This can be done simply as follow :

const YourApp = () => {
    return (
        <TrackVisibility once>
            <ComponentToTrack />
        </TrackVisibility>
    );
}

Defining offset

Using offset props can be usefull if you want to lazy load an image for instance.

const YourApp = () => {
    return (
        <TrackVisibility offset={1000}>
            {({ isVisible }) => isVisible ? <ComponentToTrack /> : <Loading />}
        </TrackVisibility>
    );
}

Partial visibility

You may want to consider that a component is visible as soon as a part of the component is visible on screen. You can use the partialVisibility props for that.

const YourApp = () => {
    return (
        <TrackVisibility partialVisibility>
            {({ isVisible }) => <ComponentToTrack />}
        </TrackVisibility>
    );
}

Use the html tag of your choice

const YourApp = () => {
    return (
        <TrackVisibility partialVisibility tag="h1">
            {({ isVisible }) => <ComponentToTrack />}
        </TrackVisibility>
    );
}
