Features

  • Single component, ready for use instantly
  • Customizable, modular, and styleable
  • Add your own icons, change the order, decide which subcomponents/icons are rendered

Setup

Only required prop is an ARRAY of audioFile OBJECTs, which follows the pattern

[{ src: "/linkToAudioFile",
  title: "Toxic",
  artist: "Britney Spears" }]

Within the audioFile object, only src is required, title and artist are optional. If you only want to include a single piece of text as the name, set it as the title with no artist.

Quick setup with this simple example

import AudioPlayer from 'react-modular-audio-player';

let playlist = [
  { src: "/music.mp3",
    title: "Song",
    artist: "Singer" },
  { src: "/moreMusic.mp3",
    title: "Another Song",
    artist: "Another Singer" }
];

//inside render() function
<AudioPlayer 
  audioFiles={playlist}
/>

Rearrange Prop

The rearrange prop allows you to render subcomponents in any order you wish. It also allows you to build your audioplayer in multiple columns called tiers.

The rearrange prop allows you to arrange the following subcomponents. All of these subcomponents are referenced by a string name.

Available Subcomponents

Name Description
"play" renders the play icon
"rewind" renders the rewind/previous icon
"forward" renders the skip/forward icon
"loop" renders the loop icon
"name" renders the scrolling title/artist marquee
"time" renders the current time/duration
"seek" renders the seeking range input
"volume" renders the volume/mute icon and corresponding range input

Tier Object

The rearrange prop accepts an array of objects, representing tiers. The tier object follows the pattern below.

//Single Tier Object Shape
{
  className: "string",
  style: {JSXstyleElement: "value"},
  innerComponents: [
    {
      type: "subcomponent string name",
      style: {JSXstyleElement: "value", JSXstyleElement: "value"}
    },
    {
      type: "another subcomponent string name",
      style: {JSXstyleElement: "value"}
    },
  ]
}

Example Tier Object

Below is an example tier rendering the play icon and volume icon/range input with comments.

{
  //className supplies a CSS class to the div containing the given subcomponents
  className: "first-tier",

  //style is an optional property
  //style appends and rewrites the default styling options for the current tier
  //style accepts an object with any JSX inline style properties
  style: {marginBottom: "0.3em"}

  //innerComponents is an array of objects that arrange the desired subcomponents
  innerComponents: [
    {
      //type is a string that will render a specific subcomponent
      type: "play",

      //style is an optional property
      //style appends and rewrites the default styling options for the div containing the subcomponent
      //style accepts an object with any JSX inline style properties
      style: {width: "fit-content"}
    },
    {
      type: "volume"
    }
  ]
}

Default Styling When Using rearrange Prop

Tiers have two default inline style properties, tier and innerComponent. Both of these JSX inline styles can be appended or rewritten with the style properties available within the rearrange prop.

Default Tier Styling

The tier div itself, which contains all the tier's innerComponents, has the following default style

defaultTierStyle = {
  display: "flex", 
  flexDirection: "row", 
  justifyContent: "left",
  alignContent: "left",
  width: "100%"
}

Default innerComponent Styling

The innerComponent div, which contains a specific subcomponent, has the following default style

defaultInnerComponentStyle = {
  display: "flex", 
  alignItems: "center", 
  justifyContent: "left",
  width: "100%" 
}

Example AudioPlayer using rearrange

Below is an example of a custom arranged AudioPlayer with two tiers. The first tier contains the play, rewind, forward, and volume innerComponents. The second tier contains the time and seek innerComponents. It appears like this:

let rearrangedPlayer = [
  {
    className: "tier-top",
    style: {margin: "0.3rem"},
    innerComponents: [
      { 
        type: "play",
        style: {width: "fit-content"}
      },
      {
        type: "rewind",
        style: {width: "fit-content"}
      },
      {
        type: "forward",
        style: {width: "fit-content"}
      },
      {
        type: "volume"
      }
    ]
  },
  {
    className: "tier-bottom",
    style: {margin: "0rem 0.3rem 0.3rem 0.3rem"},
    innerComponents: [
      {
        type: "time",
        style: {width: "fit-content"}
      },
      {
        type: "seek"
      }
    ]
  }
]

//render
<AudioPlayer
  rearrange={rearrangedPlayer}
  audioFiles={anArrayOfAudioFileObjects}
  playerWidth="10em"
  fontSize="1.5rem"
  iconSize="1.5rem"
/>

Styling

AudioPlayer component

To style the whole AudioPlayer component, you can target the class 'audio-player'.

Icons

The icon sizes are set by the iconSize prop, but individual icon sizes and styling can be overwritten by the following selectors.

Selector Info
#play-icon requires !important attribute, includes pause icon
#rewind-icon requires !important attribute
#forward-icon requires !important attribute
#volume-icon requires !important attribute
#loop-icon requires !important attribute

Range-input

To style the range-input for the volume and seek subcomponents, provide a class selector name for the sliderClass prop (not 'slider', which will have the default styling). I recommend using http://danielstern.ca/range.css/#/ to generate your desired slider style. Include the class name you provided as a prop in the Namespace input at the bottom of the page under 'General'. Copy the generated code into your style sheet and Voila!, a new slider style.

//in render()
<AudioPlayer
  sliderClass="my-slider"/>

//in style sheet 
input[type=range].my-slider {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider:focus {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider::-webkit-slider-runnable-track {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider::-webkit-slider-thumb {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider:focus::-webkit-slider-runnable-track {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider::-moz-range-track {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider::-moz-range-thumb {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider::-ms-track {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider::-ms-fill-lower {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider::-ms-fill-upper {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider::-ms-thumb {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider:focus::-ms-fill-lower {
  //style
}
input[type=range].my-slider:focus::-ms-fill-upper {
  //style
}
