angular ui-listView

May 17, 2017

An Angular directive for an efficient, dynamically changing list. It's able to handle data sets with thousands of items while providing a similar interface to ng-repeat. Unlike other variations, row heights are based on the row content, and the list view dynamically updates to accommodate changes.
This is an initial release. More features and testing are in the works.


You can use bower to install ui-listView.
 bower install ui-listView  
Then include the "ui-listView" module into your angular application.
 var appModule = angular.module("app", [ui-listView])  

Code Example

See live code examples on
 <div class="contact-list" ui-list-view="contact in contacts" options="listOptions">  
   <p class="name"><strong>{{ }}</strong></p>  
   <div class="email">{{ }}</div>  


Working on many projects that required large or paged lists lead me to create this directive. I wanted something with a simple interface like ng-repeat, yet able to handle big data sets. There was also a strong need for dynamic rows. However, above all, I did this because it sounded like a fun problem to solve.


  • options

    type: Object
    Configuration options for the list view. You can provide the options to the directive with an "options" attribute as shown in the example above.
  • options.preferredHeight

    type: Number default: 48
    This is the initial preferred, or estimated, height of a row. Once a row is displayed, it'll use its content as the height and update the list view as it changes.
  • options.listView

    type: Object
    This property is added by the list view to provide API access. Documentation is coming shortly.
  • options.range

    type: Object
    A read-only property that shows the current visible range of items being displayed. It can be useful to indicate when to load more items from a service when implementing infinite scroll.


Use the following CSS classes on the ui-listView's element to set built-in styles, or use your own CSS classes for a custom style.
  • ui-list-view-bordered

    Wraps the ui-listView and its cells in a border.
  • ui-list-view-striped

    Adds a striped appearance to the cells.
