Drag/Resize/Rotate Javascript Library

Subjx(dragging/resizing/rotating)

Touch-enabled draggable, resizable, rotatable library for creating drag-n-drop applications.

Demos

Basic example

Drag, zoom and pan SVG

Usage

Library provides dragging/resizing/rotating/snapping SVG/HTML Elements.

Installation

Run npm install to install with npm.

npm install subjx

Including via a <script> tag:

<script src="../dist/js/subjx.js"></script>

Get started

Main function subjx returns Subjx instance which based on elements finded by passed parameters:

import subjx from 'subjx';
import 'subjx/dist/style/subjx.css';

// possible parameters
const xElem = subjx( 'selector' ) |
                subjx( element ) |
                subjx( elementArray );

Transformation(drag/resize/rotate)

// enabling tool by `drag` method with the optional parameters
// by default just call `.drag()`
const xDraggables = xElem.drag();

// method always returns array of new Draggable instances
// for disabling use `disable` method for each object
xDraggables.forEach(item => {
    item.disable();
});

“Draggable” API

// getter returns root DOM element of "controls"
const [xDraggable] = xDraggables;
xDraggable.controls;

// provides access to useful options
xDraggable.storage;
// for example: to get reference to any handle's DOM
const {
  handles: { tl, tr, ...etc }
} = xDraggable.storage;

// enables dragging
// there is no need to call this method manually
xDraggable.enable(options);

// disables dragging, removes controls and handles
xDraggable.disable();

 // adds event listener for some events
xDraggable.on(eventName, cb);

// removes event listener for some events
xDraggable.off(eventName, cb);

// Event names
const EVENTS = [
    'dragStart',
    'drag',
    'dragEnd',
    'resizeStart',
    'resize',
    'resizeEnd',
    'rotateStart',
    'rotate',
    'rotateEnd'
];

// execute dragging manually
xDraggable.exeDrag({
    dx, // drag along the x axis
    dy // drag along the y axis
});

// execute resizing manually
xDraggable.exeResize({
    dx, // resize along the x axis
    dy, // resize along the y axis
    revX, // reverse resizing along the x axis
    revY, // reverse resizing along the y axis
    doW, // allow width resizing
    doH  // allow height resizing
});

// execute rotating manually
xDraggable.exeRotate({
    delta // radians
});

// SVG elements methods

// Useful when SVG element's container was transformed from outside
// call this method when applying scale or viewBox values changing
xDraggable.fitControlsToSize();

// Returns rotation point handle to default position
xDraggable.resetCenterPoint();

Options

Property Description Type Default
container Transformation coordinate system 'selector'/ element element.parentNode
controlsContainer “controls” append to this element 'selector'/ element element.parentNode
axis Constrain movement along an axis string ‘xy’
snap Snapping to grid in pixels/radians object { x: 10, y: 10, angle: 10 }
each Mimic behavior with other ‘.draggable’ elements object { move: false, resize: false, rotate: false }
proportions Keep aspect ratio when resizing boolean true
draggable Allow or deny an action boolean true
resizable Allow or deny an action boolean true
rotatable Allow or deny an action boolean true
scalable Applies scaling only to root element boolean false
restrict Restricts element dragging/resizing/rotation 'selector' / element -
rotatorAnchor Rotator anchor direction string: ‘n’ / ‘s’ / ‘w’ / ‘e’ ‘e’
rotatorOffset Rotator offset number 50
Notice: In most cases, it is recommended to use ‘proportions’ option

Methods

subjx('.draggable').drag({
    onInit(el) {
        // fires on tool activation
    },
    onMove({ clientX, clientY, dx, dy, transform }) {
        // fires on moving
    },
    onResize({ clientX, clientY, dx, dy, transform, width, height }) {
        // fires on resizing
    },
    onRotate({ clientX, clientY, delta, transform }) {
        // fires on rotation
    },
    onDrop({ clientX, clientY }) {
        // fires on drop
    },
    onDestroy(el) {
        // fires on tool deactivation
    }
});

Subscribing new draggable element to previously activated(useful with each option)

const observable = subjx.createObservable();
subjx('.draggable').drag({...}, observable);

const createDraggableAndSubscribe = e => {
    subjx(e.target).drag({...}, observable);
};

Allowed SVG elements: g, path, rect, ellipse, line, polyline, polygon, circle

Cloning

Options

const xCloneable = xElem.clone({
    // dropping area
    stack: 'selector',
    // set clone parent
    appendTo: 'selector',
    // set clone additional style
    style: {
        border: '1px dashed green',
        background: 'transparent'
    }
});

Methods

subjx('.cloneable').clone({
    onInit(el) {
        // fires on tool activation
    },
    onMove(dx, dy) {
        // fires on moving
    },
    onDrop(e) {
        // fires on drop
    },
    onDestroy() {
        // fires on tool deactivation
    }
});

Disabling

xCloneable.forEach(item => {
    item.disable();
});
