9.1.1

Summary: Forces touch when pointer events are not available.

Fixed

  1. Should fix #267.

9.0.3 and 9.0.4 Releases

Summary: Fixes bug with native handlers not accounting for external state, and adjusts zoom normalization on Safari.

Fixed

  2. Should fix #263.

Fixed

  1. Should fix #260.

9.0.2 Release

Summary: normalize pinch zoom on trackpads for Chrome and Firefox, based on Safari's native zooming.

9.0.1 Release

Summary: fix a silly bug that happened when minifying a Safaro while pinching on iPad.

Fixed

  1. Fixed the bug below:
  • Start a pinch gesture
  • Do the gesture for the mobile OS to go back to home (for example on iOS, 5 fingers pinch in or swipe from the bottom)
  • Come back to the page, start a gesture => the following error message is displayed (from the multi gesture card example)

9.0.0 Release

Summary: this release is pretty major since it changes the way it handles the drag gesture, using setPointerCapture. It also adds two new configuration options, transform and experimental_preventWindowScrollY.

Breaking

  1. Drag now uses setPointerCapture and releasePointerCapture. This is no breaking change in the API and it's very likely that no code will break, but it's still a major shift. Please report any undesirable behavior.
  2. The down state attribute that indicates if the mouse button is down or if a pointer is pressing the screen is now more consistent and will remain true even when the gesture is canceled. To make sure you want to handle cases where the gesture is active, use the active state attribute.

Added

  1. New transform options to map pointer coordinates to another space where the gesture takes place.
  2. New experimental_preventWindowScrollY that prevents window scroll when interacting with draggable items.
  3. Support for pointer lock #244.
  4. Adds a locked flag in the state to indicate whether the document is in lock mode.
  5. useTouch option for drag in case you want to not lose dragging while the window is scrolling on mobile #237.
  6. Adds swipeDuration option to configure the maximum duration that a swipe is detected.

Fixed

  1. Fixed a bug with threshold and initial options set together, where the unintentional axis was set to 0 instead of intial[axisIndex].
  2. Fixed a bug affecting drag when used together with pinch #234.
  3. Fixes touches with the drag gesture #233.
  4. Normalize wheel event delta values for FireFox #236.
  5. Fixes conflicts between drag and pinch!
  6. Increased maximum default swipe duration from 220 to 250 and decreased minimum swipe distance from 60 to 50 (pixels).

8.0.1 Release

Summary: fixes origin on Pinch for Safari desktop.

Fixed

  1. adds origin to GestureEvent (used on Safari Desktop). Fixes #226.

8.0.0

Summary: Major refactoring by thephoenixofthevoid. This release has some significant underlying changes that may break some specific edge cases (like scrolling while dragging on mobile).

Breaking

  1. The app uses PointerEvent wherever it can, dropping support for some older browsers.
  2. When adding events directly to the dom element using domTarget you no longer need to clean the effect yourself.
// before
const bind = useDrag(
() => {
/* your logic */
},
{ domTarget: window }
)
React.useEffect(bind, [bind])
// after
useDrag(
() => {
/* your logic */
},
{ domTarget: window }
)
  1. Handlers are being fired even if the gesture is not intentional #3dacf8f but only with the triggerAllEvents flag set to true #5c77db7. This allows manipulation of events at all times. Fixes #175.
  2. When using native handlers, the shared state is now being forwarded #186.
// before
const bind = useGesture({
onClick: event => console.log(event),
})
// after
const bind = useGesture({
onClick: ({ event, ...fullState }) => console.log(event), // you can do something with the fullState
})

Added

  1. Drag and pinch now works on multiple dom elements at once #170.
  2. Drag option { filterTaps: true } will also prevent unwanted taps on children elements #173.
  3. Config options bounds, distanceBounds and angleBounds can now be functions excuted at the start of each gesture. The function is passed the gesture state as an argument.
  4. When a function, initial is passed the gesture state as an argument so that you can compute initial based on args.
  5. User facing intentional option that is set to true when the gesture is intentional (useful when using threshold or filterTaps options).

Fixed

  1. Various Typescript types.
  2. Hooks configuration is no longer recreated on every render.

  2. Fixes onGestureEnd logic for other gestures.

7.0.5 Release

Summary: blocked bug fixes on debounced gestures.

Fixed

  1. Passes delta: [0,0] when gesture is blocked so debounced gestures can calculate distance. Fixes #140.

  4. Drag state attribute swipe: indicates if the drag was a swipe.
  5. Drag state attribute tap: is the drag assimilated to a tap.
  6. Option initial: the initial movement or a function that returns the initial movement.
  7. Option threshold: the handler will fire only when the gesture displacement is greater than the threshold.
  8. Option rubberband: the elasticity coefficient of the gesture when going out of bounds.
  9. XY option axis: constraints the gesture to the axis.
  10. XY option lockDirection: if true, the gesture will lock the first detected direction.

Added

  1. Support for for zoom and rotate on trackpad for Safari.
  2. Support for zoom on trackpad for Chrome and Firefox.
  3. Added buttons attribute to pointer-related gesture state.
  4. Added origin attribute to pinch gesture.
  5. Accepts support for genuine element handlers (such as onMouseDown) to prevent overriding when passing the prop directly to the bound component.

Fixed

Breaking

  1. config object must be passed as a second argument.

5.0.2 Release

Summary: minor release.

Fixed

  1. Added onHover in Typescript definitions.

5.0.1 Release

Summary: release updating dev dependencies and fixing minor bugs.

Fixed

  1. Fixed a bug where onDragEnd or onPinchEnd would be called too late when the gestures are canceled #52

  2. Wheel and scroll gestures are also returning modifier keys.

5.0.0 Release

Summary (recap from betas): major release introducing additional gestures on top of drag: pinch, scroll, wheel, hover and move are now supported. This release is dropping support for high-order and render-props component and can only be used through React hooks 🎣. Therefore react-with-gesture is now react-use-gesture.

Added

  1. Support for pinch, scroll, wheel, move and hover events. Each gesture has now an active boolean prop that lets you know whether it’s currently active. State also include dragging, moving, scrolling, wheeling, pinching, and hovering booleans so that you can know within a gesture handler the running state of all others.

  2. Support for dynamically enabling or disabling gestures in the config object: useGesture(actions, { enabled: false }) or useGesture(actions, { drag: true, move: false }) if you want to disable or enable gestures individually.

  3. You can now add a gesture to a dom node or the window (useful for scroll) with the domTarget config prop. In that case you shouldn’t spread bind in a component but use the useEffect hook that will take care of adding and removing listeners:

const bind = useGesture({ onScroll: () => {...} }, { domTarget: window })
React.useEffect(bind, [bind])
  1. Individual per-axis velocity has been added in gesture state props as vxvy: vector2.

  2. There's a new transform config prop that can be passed to change the way x and y are calculated (useful for canvas which inverts axis compared to the dom).

  3. Experimental support for pointer events through config: { event : { pointerEvents: true } }.

  4. Tests with react-testing-library.

  5. Travis integration.

Improved

  1. State and props are no longer frozen, meaning you can now use state or props values from your component inside your handler and they will be up to date.
const [dragCount, setDragCount] = useState(0)
const bind = useGesture({
onDrag: ({ first }) => {
console.log(dragCount) //<-- count will be up to date
if (first) setDragCount(dragCount + 1)
},
})
  1. Readme should be clearer (hopefully)!

Breaking

  1. HOC and render-props component support has been dropped. Hooks usage is enforced, therefore this package requires React 16.8+.

  2. Default syntax [bind, props] = useGesture() has been dropped in favor of bind = useGesture({ onDrag: () => {...} }) which is more performance-effective since it doesn’t render on each frame.

  3. onAction prop is now an alias of onDrag but should be avoided as its support could be dropped at any time. Subsequently, onUp and onDown have been dropped, and there's now on[Gesture]Start and on[Gesture]End handlers.

  4. config object should now be passed as a second argument.

// from this:
useGesture({ onAction: () => {}, config })
// to this:
useGesture({ onDrag: () => {} }, { ...config })
  1. touch and mouse config props are dropped.

5.0.0-beta.8 Release

Summary: Removed default export to match TypeScript import in JS.

Breaking

  1. You should now import useGesture as follows: import { useGesture } from 'react-use-gesture'

5.0.0-beta.7 Release

Summary: Minor bug fixing.

Fixed

  1. first was still set to true when the gesture finished if no movement was registered.

5.0.0-beta.6 Release

Summary: Minor bug fixing.

Fixed

  1. NaN or Infinity velocities are now set to 0.

5.0.0-beta.5 Release

Summary: bug fixing and more tests.

Improved

  1. domTarget now accepts refs.
  2. Tests are now testing domTarget.
  3. Tests are now testing bind passing arguments.

Fixed

  1. onMoveEnd shouldn't fire if state isn't moving (ie onLeave was triggered).
  2. Performance optimizations were removed as they were conflicting with passing args to bind.

5.0.0-beta.4 Release

Summary: bug fixing and added tests!

Added

  1. Tests have been added with react-testing-library: they still throw a warning about some tests not being wrapped in act(...) but this is probably because of async debouncing in move, scroll, wheel events and RAF for cancel in drag and pinch.

  2. Added Travis integration.

Improved

  1. Now using dtslint for Typescript definitions and tests.

Fixed

  1. first was always returning true and this is no longer the case.

  2. active wasn't set to true when moving in onMove.

  3. Added activeset to false on mouseLeave for onHover. This might not be a good idea though.

5.0.0-beta.3 Release

Summary: major release introducing additional gestures on top of drag: pinch, scroll, wheel, hover and move are now supported. This release is dropping support for high-order and render-props component and can only be used through React hooks 🎣. Therefore react-with-gesture is now react-use-gesture.

  2. There's a new transform config prop that can be passed to change the way x and y are calculated (useful for canvas which inverts axis compared to the dom).

  3. Experimental support for pointer events through config: { event : { pointerEvents: true } }.

Improved

  1. useGesture returned value is now cached which should produce better performance in case of frequent renders produced by external factors (i.e. prop change).

  2. State and props are no longer frozen, meaning you can now use state or props values from your component inside your handler and they will be up to date.

const [dragCount, setDragCount] = useState(0)
const bind = useGesture({
onDrag: ({ first }) => {
console.log(dragCount) //<-- count will be up to date
if (first) setDragCount(dragCount + 1)
