Usage with react-router

1. Install Package

npm install @steveeeie/react-page-transition

or

yarn add @steveeeie/react-page-transition


2. Install Dependencies

npm install react-router react-router-dom react-transition-group styled-components

or

yarn add react-router react-router-dom react-transition-group styled-components


3. Code Example

App.js

import React from 'react'; import { BrowserRouter, Switch, Route, Link } from 'react-router-dom'; import { PageTransition } from '@steveeeie/react-page-transition'; import './styles.css'; const Links = () => ( <> <Link to="/">Home</Link> <Link to="/about">About</Link> </> ); const Home = props => <h1>Home</h1>; const About = props => <h1>About</h1>; export default function App() { return ( <BrowserRouter> <Links /> <Route render={({ location }) => { return ( <PageTransition preset="moveToLeftFromRight" transitionKey={location.pathname} > <Switch location={location}> <Route exact path="/" component={Home} /> <Route exact path="/about" component={About} /> </Switch> </PageTransition> ); }} /> </BrowserRouter> ); }

Wrap your routes inside the PageTransition component and pass one of the preset names to the preset prop. View the advanced demo for the full list of presets.

You will also need to pass the current location.path to the transitionKey prop, this is so that the internal TransitionGroup can track which components are entering and exiting.


styles.css

html, body, #root { height: 100%; }

PageTransition is styled with height: 100%. The parent containers need to be given a height for it to render correctly because of this.
