Fullpage.js / enhance SlimScroll to detect visible content for animations

20. Juli 2015








Fullpage.js / enhance SlimScroll to detect visible content for animations

When using Fullpage.js, overflowing section / slide content will be made scrollable with Slimscroll. If you want to use addons that rely on the natural scroll event, these will fail with Slimscroll. One of the candidates breaking is Scrollreveal.js for example.

I decided to work around that, to allow animations to be triggered when elements become visible or invisible  to the viewport.

ADDITIONAL PLUGINS

You could code the viewport visibility check yourself or use the “visible” jquery plugin.

“This is a jQuery plugin which allows us to quickly check if an element is within the browsers visual viewport, regardless of the scroll position. If a user can see this element, the function will return true.” jquery-visible on Github

EXTENDING SLIMSCROLL WITHIN FULLPAGE.JS

The idea was to extend or hook into slimscroll without touching the fullpage.js codebase. Fullpage.js wraps overflowing content within a fp-scrollable container. Slimscroll itself provides events to track your position within the scrollable area in pixels or when top / bottom have been reached.

TRACK TOP / BOTTOM

TRACK POSITION

MAIN GOAL

  1. Hook into fullpage.js
  2. Track viewport & visible elements (jquery-visible)
  3. Track direction of scroll
  4. Get current position
  5. Assign classes to elements to trigger animations

MY SOLUTION

This is just a crude and simple starting point, but should give you the basic idea. This still needs some throttling, so that its not called on every scroll position.

HTML EXAMPLE

CSS EXAMPLE

Very basic idea to get some transitions working.

Hopefully Fullpage.js will be switching to iScroll natively in the future, as it provides far more options to handle scrollable areas. You can use iScroll now, but you have to disable the scrolling feature within Fullpage.js and call iScroll yourself. Not that difficult to do :)

There is also a WordPress Plugin that wraps Fullpage.js natively with a nice interface (WP_Fullpage) and my upcoming Visual Composer integration, which already uses iScroll :)

Enjoy coding ….

Abgesehen davon bin ich ein friedliebender Kerl, der versucht, Leute um sich herum zu haben, die dasselbe denken.  Ich glaube wirklich an das Prinzip: "Wenn man jemandem hilft, wird einem jemand helfen, wenn man es braucht."
