Before modern frameworks, I always used jQuery’s scrollTo method. At some point, not every project included jQuery, so I wrote simple function to animate window scroll.
I have kept copying that function from project to project. Finally I took some time, cleaned it up and published it on the npm (this is the first npm package I published).
Check the demo and read documentation of Github.
Find it on Github and npm


npm install animated-scroll-to 


import animateScrollTo from 'animated-scroll-to'; // desiredOffset - page offset to scroll // options - object with options // default options const options = { // duration of the scroll per 1000px, default 500 speed: 500, // minimum duration of the scroll minDuration: 250, // maximum duration of the scroll maxDuration: 1500, // DOM element to scroll, default window // Pass a reference to a DOM object // Example: document.querySelector('#element-to-scroll'), element: window, // should animated scroll be canceled on user scroll/keypress // if set to "false" user input will be disabled until animated scroll is complete cancelOnUserAction: true }; const desiredOffset = 1000; animateScrollTo(desiredOffset, options);
