$ bower install tui-gesture-reader#<tag> # Specific version

Via Contents Delivery Network (CDN)

TOAST UI products are available over the CDN powered by TOAST Cloud.

You can use the CDN as below.

<script src=""></script>

This component does not require the container. You can distinguish the gesture with this component in the callback when an event occurs on the target element.


This can be used by creating an instance with the constructor function. To get the constructor function, you should import the module using one of the following ways depending on your environment.

Using namespace in browser environment
var GestureReader = tui.GestureReader;
Using module format in node environment
var GestureReader = require('tui-gesture-reader'); /* CommonJS */
import GestureReader from 'tui-gesture-reader'; /* ES6 */

You can create an instance with options and call various APIs after creating an instance.

var instance = new GestureReader({ ... });

instance.isAvailableZone( ... );

For more information about the API, please see here.


You can also see the older versions of API page on the releases page.
