Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.


Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

A polyfill for the 'scroll-behavior' CSS-property




A polyfill for the 'scroll-behavior' CSS-property


The scroll-behavior CSS-property as well as the extensions to the Element interface in the CSSOM View Module CSS property sets the behavior for a scrolling box when scrolling is triggered by the navigation or CSSOM scrolling APIs. This polyfill brings this new feature to all browsers.

It is very efficient, tiny, and works with the latest browser technologies such as Shadow DOM.

This polyfill also implements the extensions to the Element interface in the CSSOM View Module such as Element.prototype.scroll, Element.prototype.scrollTo, Element.protype.scrollBy, and Element.prototype.scrollIntoView.


  • Spec-compliant
  • Tiny
  • Efficient
  • Works with the latest browser technologies, including Shadow DOM
  • Seamless

Table of Contents



$ npm install scroll-behavior-polyfill


$ yarn add scroll-behavior-polyfill

Applying the polyfill

The polyfill will be feature detected and applied if and only if the browser doesn't support the property already. To include it, add this somewhere:

import "scroll-behavior-polyfill";

However, it is strongly suggested that you only include the polyfill for browsers that doesn't already support scroll-behavior. One way to do so is with an async import:

if (!("scrollBehavior" in {
	await import("scroll-behavior-polyfill");

Alternatively, you can use which uses this polyfill and takes care of only loading the polyfill if needed as well as adding the language features that the polyfill depends on (See dependencies).


Declarative API

You can define the scroll-behavior of Elements via one of the following approaches:

  • A style attribute including a scroll-behavior property.
  • An element with a scroll-behavior attribute.
  • Or, an element with a CSSStyleDeclaration with a scrollBehavior property.

This means that either of the following approaches will work:

<!-- Works just fine when given in the 'style' attribute -->
<div style="scroll-behavior: smooth"></div>
<!-- Works just fine when given as an attribute of the name 'scroll-behavior' -->
<div scroll-behavior="smooth"></div>

	// Works jut fine when given as a style property = "smooth";

See this section for information about why scroll-behavior values provided in stylesheets won't be discovered by the polyfill.

Imperative API

You can of course also use the imperative scroll(), scrollTo, scrollBy, and scrollIntoView APIs and provide scroll-behavior options.

For example:

// Works for the window object
	behavior: "smooth",
	top: 100,
	left: 0

// Works for any element (and supports all options)

	behavior: "smooth",
	top: 50,
	left: 0

You can also use the scrollTop and scrollLeft setters, both of which works with the polyfill too:

element.scrollTop += 100;
element.scrollLeft += 50;

Dependencies & Browser support

This polyfill is distributed in ES3-compatible syntax, but is using some modern APIs and language features which must be available:

  • requestAnimationFrame
  • Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptor
  • Object.defineProperty

For by far the most browsers, these features will already be natively available. Generally, I would highly recommend using something like which takes care of this stuff automatically.
