README

โš ๏ธ Maintenance & support

This library continues to be relied upon heavily by Atlassian products, but we are focused on other priorities right now and have no current plans for further feature development or improvements.

It will continue to be here on GitHub and we will still make critical updates (e.g. security fixes, if any) as required, but will not be actively monitoring or replying to issues and pull requests.

We recommend that you donโ€™t raise issues or pull requests, as they will not be reviewed or actioned until further notice.

  • Flexible item sizes - the draggable items can have different heights (vertical lists) or widths (horizontal lists)
  • Add and remove items during a drag
  • Compatible with semantic <table> reordering - table pattern
  • Auto scrolling - automatically scroll containers and the window as required during a drag (even with keyboard ๐Ÿ”ฅ)

  • Server side rendering (SSR) compatible - see resetServerContext()
  • Plays well with nested interactive elements by default

Motivation ๐Ÿค”

react-beautiful-dnd exists to create beautiful drag and drop for lists that anyone can use - even people who cannot see. For a good overview of the history and motivations of the project you can take a look at these external resources:

Not for everyone โœŒ๏ธ

There are a lot of libraries out there that allow for drag and drop interactions within React. Most notable of these is the amazing react-dnd. It does an incredible job at providing a great set of drag and drop primitives which work especially well with the wildly inconsistent html5 drag and drop feature. react-beautiful-dnd is a higher level abstraction specifically built for lists (vertical, horizontal, movement between lists, nested lists and so on). Within that subset of functionality react-beautiful-dnd offers a powerful, natural and beautiful drag and drop experience. However, it does not provide the breadth of functionality offered by react-dnd. So react-beautiful-dnd might not be for you depending on what your use case is.
