Tiny but perfect jQuery scrollbar plugin

I worked on a personal project recently, and I was trying to find the jQuery scrollbar plugin that's perfect. But there was no perfect scrollbar plugin. That's why I decided to make one.

perfect-scrollbar is very tiny but perfect (for me, and maybe for the most of developers) jQuery scrollbar plugin.
I hope you love this!

Demo: http://noraesae.github.com/perfect-scrollbar/

perfect means...

  • There should be no css change on any original element.
  • The scrollbar should not affect the original design layout.
  • The design of the scrollbar should be (nearly) fully customizable.
  • If the size of the container or the content changes, the scrollbar size and position should be able to change.

Yes! the only thing that's not perfect is my English.

  • perfect-scrollbar has some requirements, but doesn't change or add any style on original elements.
  • perfect-scrollbar is designed not to have width or height. It's fixed on the right and bottom side of the container.
  • You can change nearly all css styles of the scrollbar. The scrollbar design has no dependency on scripts.
  • perfect-scrollbar support 'update' function. Whenever you need to update the size or position of the scrollbar, just update.
  • Additionally, perfect-scrollbar do use 'scrollTop' and 'scrollLeft', not absolute position or something messy.

It's cool, isn't it?

You can download the latest stable version with download links in Github Page. You also can find all releases in Releases page.

If you want to use the development version of the plugin, use the source files which are not minified. They're in the src directory. The development version may be unstable, but some known bugs can be fixed.

$ git clone https://github.com/noraesae/perfect-scrollbar.git
$ cd perfect-scrollbar/src

You can use Bower to install the plugin. The plugin is registered as perfect-scrollbar.

$ bower install perfect-scrollbar

It's registered on npm as perfect-scrollbar.

$ npm install perfect-scrollbar

You can also load it from cdnjs. It is registered as jquery.perfect-scrollbar.

To make this plugin perfect, some requirements were not avoidable. But they're all very trivial and there's nothing to worry about.

  • the container must have a 'position' css style.
  • the container must have an 'overflow:hidden' css style.
  • the scrollbar's position must be 'absolute'.
  • the scrollbar-x must have a 'bottom' css style, and the scrollbar-y must have a 'right' css style.

The requirement below is for perfect-scrollbar <= 0.3.4

  • there must be the one content element(like div) for the container.

perfect-scrollbar supports optional parameters.

The scroll speed applied to mousewheel event.
Default: 1

If this option is true, when the scroll reaches the end of the side, mousewheel event will be propagated to parent element.
Default: false

If this option is true, when the scroll reaches the end of the side, touch scrolling will be propagated to parent element.
Default: true

When set to an integer value, the thumb part of the scrollbar will not shrink below that number of pixels.
Default: null

When set to an integer value, the thumb part of the scrollbar will not expand over that number of pixels.
Default: null

When set to true, and only one (vertical or horizontal) scrollbar is visible then both vertical and horizontal scrolling will affect the scrollbar.
Default: false

When set to true, the scroll works with arrow keys on the keyboard. The element is scrolled only when the mouse cursor hovers the element.
Default: true

When set to true, the scroll bar in X axis will not be available, regardless of the content width.
Default: false

When set to true, the scroll bar in Y axis will not be available, regardless of the content height.
Default: false

The number of pixels the content width can surpass the container width without enabling the X axis scroll bar. Allows some "wiggle room" or "offset break", so that X axis scroll bar is not enabled just because of a few pixels.
Default: 0

The number of pixels the content height can surpass the container height without enabling the Y axis scroll bar. Allows some "wiggle room" or "offset break", so that Y axis scroll bar is not enabled just because of a few pixels.
Default: 0

When set to true, it uses innerWidth and innerHeight for the container size instead of width and height. When your container element has non-zero padding and the scrollbar layout looks weird, this option can be helpful.
Default: false

<style>
  #Demo { 
    position: relative;
    height: 100%; /* Or whatever you want (eg. 400px) */
    overflow: hidden;
  }
</style> 
<div id='Demo'>
  <div>
    ...
  </div>
</div>

When the html document is like above, just use like this:

$('#Demo').perfectScrollbar();

With optional parameters:

$("#Demo").perfectScrollbar({
  wheelSpeed: 20,
  wheelPropagation: true,
  minScrollbarLength: 20
})

If the size of your container or content changes:

$('#Demo').perfectScrollbar('update');

If you want to destory the scrollbar:

$('#Demo').perfectScrollbar('destroy');

If you want to scroll to somewhere, just use scroll-top css and update.

$("#Demo").scrollTop(0);
$("#Demo").perfectScrollbar('update');

Also you can get the informations about how to use the plugin from example codes in the examples directory of the source tree.
