A pan and zoom component for React, using CSS transformations.

Depends only upon prop-types, react and react-dom modules.
Works on both desktop and mobile.

Online demo here!

Zoom features 🔎

  • Zoom with the mouse-wheel or a two-finger pinch
  • Zoom using double-click or double-tap
  • Zoom on selected area and center

Pan features 👆

  • Pan with the mouse pointer or with one finger when zoomed-in
  • Intuitive panning depending on available space when zoomed-in
  • Adjusts cursor style to indicate in which direction the element can be moved

Breaking changes on v2

  • The package now requires React v16.3 or higher (in order to use react references)
  • The zoom feature through gestures or mousewheel got some improvements to react better with all devices. You may need to adjust the scrollVelocity property passed to the component in order to keep the same effect.
