RecyclerListView

npm version travis License

If this project has helped you out, please support us with a star :star2:.

This is a high performance listview for React Native and Web with support for complex layouts. JS only with no native dependencies, inspired by both RecyclerView on Android and UICollectionView on iOS.

npm install --save recyclerlistview

Note: Documentation will be upgraded soon, for now check code comments for clarity and exploring features. This component is actively tested with React Native Web as well.

Overview and features

RecyclerListView uses "cell recycling" to reuse views that are no longer visible to render items instead of creating new view objects. Creation of objects is very expensive and comes with a memory overhead which means as you scroll through the list the memory footprint keeps going up. Releasing invisible items off memory is another technique but that leads to creation of even more objects and lot of garbage collections. Recycling is the best way to render infinite lists that does not compromise performance or memory efficiency.

Apart from all performance benefits RecyclerListView comes with great features out of the box:

  • Cross Platform, works on Web
  • Supports staggered grid layouts
  • Instant layout switching like going from GridView to ListView and vice versa
  • End reach detections
  • Horizontal Mode
  • Viewability Events
  • Initial render offset/index support
  • Footer support
  • Reflow support on container size change with first visible item preservation
  • Scroll position preservation
  • Window scrolling support for web
  • Non deterministic rendering mode on demand (height cannot be determined before rendering)
  • (New) ItemAnimator interface added, customize to your will how RLV handles layout changes. Allows you to modify animations that move cells. You can do things like smoothly move an item to a new position when height of one of the cells has changed.
  • (WIP) Stable Id support, ability to associate a stable id with an item. Will enable beautiful add/remove animations and optimize re-renders when DataProvider is updated.

Why?

RecyclerListView was built with performance in mind which means no blanks while quick scrolls or frame drops. RecyclerListView encourages you to have deterministic heights for items you need to render. This does not mean that you need to have all items of same height and stuff, all you need is a way to look at the data and compute height upfront so that RecyclerListView can compute layout in one pass rather than waiting for the draw to happen. You can still do all sorts of GridViews and ListViews with different types of items which are all recycled in optimal ways. Type based recycling is very easy to do and comes out of the box.

In case you really need non deterministic rendering set forceNonDeterministicRendering prop to true on RecyclerListView. This increases layout thrashing and thus, will not be as fast.

Props

For full feature set have a look at prop definitions of RecyclerListView (bottom of the file). All ScrollView features also work out of the box.

Sample Code

Please go through DataProvider, LayoutProvider and rowRenderer in detail. Those are the basic building blocks of this component. For more details dive into the source code, lot of relevant comments have been added to help you out.

/***
 Use this component inside your React Native Application.
 A scrollable list with different item type
 */
import React, { Component } from "react";
import { View, Text, Dimensions } from "react-native";
import { RecyclerListView, DataProvider, LayoutProvider } from "recyclerlistview";

const ViewTypes = {
    FULL: 0,
    HALF_LEFT: 1,
    HALF_RIGHT: 2
};

let containerCount = 0;

class CellContainer extends React.Component {
    constructor(args) {
        super(args);
        this._containerId = containerCount++;
    }
    render() {
        return <View {...this.props}>{this.props.children}<Text>Cell Id: {this._containerId}</Text></View>;
    }
}

/***
 * To test out just copy this component and render in you root component
 */
export default class RecycleTestComponent extends React.Component {
    constructor(args) {
        super(args);

        let { width } = Dimensions.get("window");

        //Create the data provider and provide method which takes in two rows of data and return if those two are different or not.
        //THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, FORGET PERFORMANCE IF THIS IS MESSED UP
        let dataProvider = new DataProvider((r1, r2) => {
            return r1 !== r2;
        });

        //Create the layout provider
        //First method: Given an index return the type of item e.g ListItemType1, ListItemType2 in case you have variety of items in your list/grid
        //Second: Given a type and object set the exact height and width for that type on given object, if you're using non deterministic rendering provide close estimates
        //If you need data based check you can access your data provider here
        //You'll need data in most cases, we don't provide it by default to enable things like data virtualization in the future
        //NOTE: For complex lists LayoutProvider will also be complex it would then make sense to move it to a different file
        this._layoutProvider = new LayoutProvider(

Note: Works with React Native Web out of the box. For use with ReactJS start importing from recyclerlistview/web e.g., import { RecyclerListView } from "recyclerlistview/web". Use aliases if you want to preserve import path. Only platform specific code is part of the build so, no unnecessary code will ship with your app.
