React Sortable (HOC) is a set of higher-order components to turn any list into an animated, touch-friendly, sortable list. It is possible to use it with Scala. Here I will provide short instructions how to do that.


The code is based one the react-sortable-hoc wrapper for React Sortable (HOC) component. It is written using scalajs-react library for ScalaJs.

Add dependencies in build.sbt:

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
  "com.dbrsn.scalajs.react.components" %%% "react-sortable-hoc" % "0.3.1"
npmDependencies in Compile ++= Seq(
  "react-sortable-hoc" -> "1.4.0",
  "react" -> "16.7.0",
  "react-dom" -> "16.7.0"


Example of usage:

case class Model(text: String)
case class Props(model: Model)

val item1 = "Test 1"
val item2 = "Test 2"

SortableList[Model, Props].Props(
  listToDisplay = List(Model(item1), Model(item2)),
  sortableContainerProps = SortableContainer.Props(),
  externalProps = Props,
  itemComponent = raw
