Vaul-Svelte is an unstyled drawer component for Svelte that can be used as a Dialog replacement on tablet and mobile devices. It uses Bits’ Dialog primitive under the hood and is inspired by this tweet.

This is a port of Vaul for React, which was created by Emil Kowalski.


To start using the library, install it in your project:

npm install vaul-svelte

Use the drawer in your app.

	import { Drawer } from 'vaul-svelte';

		<Drawer.Overlay />


Play around with the examples on StackBlitz:

API Reference


Contains all parts of a dialog. Use shouldScaleBackground to enable background scaling, it requires an element with [data-vaul-drawer-wrapper] data attribute to scale its background. Can be controlled by binding to the open prop, or using theonOpenChange prop.

Additional props:

closeThreshold: Number between 0 and 1 that determines when the drawer should be closed. Example: threshold of 0.5 would close the drawer if the user swiped for 50% of the height of the drawer or more.

scrollLockTimeout: Duration for which the drawer is not draggable after scrolling content inside of the drawer. Defaults to 500ms

snapPoints: Array of numbers from 0 to 100 that corresponds to % of the screen a given snap point should take up. Should go from least visible. Example [0.2, 0.5, 0.8]. You can also use px values, which doesn’t take screen height into account.

fadeFromIndex: Index of a snapPoint from which the overlay fade should be applied. Defaults to the last snap point.
