<h2>What's it all about?</h2>

<p>Headroom.js is a lightweight, high-performance JS widget (with no dependencies!) that allows you to react to the user's scroll. The header on this site is a living example, it slides out of view when scrolling down and slides back in when scrolling up.</p>

<h3>Why use it?</h3>

<p>Fixed headers are a popular approach for keeping the primary navigation in close proximity to the user. This can reduce the effort required for a user to quickly navigate a site, but they are not without problems&hellip; </p>

<p>Large screens are usually landscape-oriented, meaning less vertical than horizontal space. A fixed header can therefore occupy a significant portion of the content area. Small screens are typically used in a portrait orientation. Whilst this results in more vertical space, because of the overall height of the screen a meaningfully-sized header can still be quite imposing.</p>

<p>Headroom.js allows you to bring elements into view when appropriate, and give focus to your content the rest of the time.</p>

<h3>How does it work?</h3>

<p>At it's most basic headroom.js simply adds and removes CSS classes from an element in response to a scroll event:</p>

<pre class="language-markup"><code>&lt;!-- initially --&gt;
&lt;header class="headroom"&gt;

&lt;!-- scrolling down --&gt;
&lt;header class="headroom headroom--unpinned"&gt;

&lt;!-- scrolling up --&gt;
&lt;header class="headroom headroom--pinned"&gt;

<p>Relying on CSS classes affords headroom.js incredible flexibility. The choice of what to do when scrolling up or down is now entirely yours - anything you can do with CSS you can do in response to the user's scroll.</p>


<p>Using headroom.js is really simple. It has a pure JS API, and an optional jQuery/Zepto-compatible plugin.</p>

<h3>With pure JS</h3>

<pre class="language-javascript"><code>// grab an element
var myElement = document.querySelector("header");
// construct an instance of Headroom, passing the element
var headroom  = new Headroom(myElement);
// initialise

<h3>With jQuery/Zepto</h3>

<pre class="language-javascript"><code>// simple as this!
// NOTE: init() is implicitly called with the plugin
$("# header").headroom();

<p>The plugin also offers a data-* API if you prefer a declarative approach.</p>

<pre class="language-markup"><code>&lt;!-- selects $(&quot;[data-headroom]&quot;) --&gt;
&lt;header data-headroom&gt;

<p>Note: Zepto's additional <a href="https://github.com/madrobby/zepto#zepto-modules" title="https://github.com/madrobby/zepto#zepto-modules">data module</a> is required for compatibility.</p>


<p>Headroom.js can also accept an options object to alter the way it behaves. You can see the default options by inspecting <code>Headroom.options</code>. The structure of an options object is as follows:</p>

<pre class="language-javascript"><code>{
    // vertical offset in px before element is first unpinned
    offset : 0,
    // scroll tolerance in px before state changes
    tolerance : 0,
    // css classes to apply
    classes : {
        // when element is initialised
        initial : "headroom",
        // when scrolling up
        pinned : "headroom--pinned",
        // when scrolling down
        unpinned : "headroom--unpinned"
