Build Status

ngInfiniteScroll is a directive for AngularJS to evaluate an expression when the bottom of the directive's element approaches the bottom of the browser window, which can be used to implement infinite scrolling.


Check out a running demo at the ngInfiniteScroll web site.

Version Numbers

ngInfinite Scroll follows semantic versioning and uses the following versioning scheme:

  • Versions starting with 0 (e.g. 0.1.0, 0.2.0, etc.) are for initial development, and the API is not stable
  • Versions with an even minor version (1.0.0, 1.4.0, 2.2.0, etc.) are stable releases
  • Versions with an odd minor version (1.1.0, 1.3.0, 2.1.0, etc.) are development releases

The download page allows you to pick among various versions and specify which releases are stable (not including pre-release builds).

Getting Started

  • Download ngInfiniteScroll from the download page on the ngInfiniteScroll web site
  • Include the script tag on your page

     <script type='text/javascript' src='path/to/ng-infinite-scroll.min.js'></script>
  • Ensure that your application module specifies infinite-scroll as a dependency:

     angular.module('myApplication', ['infinite-scroll']);
  • Use the directive by specifying an infinite-scroll attribute on an element.

     <div infinite-scroll="myPagingFunction()" infinite-scroll-distance="3"></div>

Note that neither the module nor the directive use the ng prefix, as that prefix is reserved for the core Angular module.

Detailed Documentation

ngInfiniteScroll accepts several attributes to customize the behavior of the directive; detailed instructions can be found on the ngInfiniteScroll web site.
