    🚀 How to use

    Option Behaviors

    • If you want to prevent select from inside and no click
      • selectFromInside: false
      • selectByClick: false (default)
    • If you want to include it regardless of hitTest when selecting from the inside
      • selectFromInside: true (default)
      • selectByClick: true
    • If you want to finish right away (selectStart and selectEnd occur at the same time) without dragging when selecting from inside
      • selectFromInside: false
      • selectByClick: true
      • preventDragFromInside: true (default)
      • clickBySelectEnd: false (default)
    • If you want to selectEnd(click) after stopping drag and mouse(touch)
      • selectFromInside: false
      • selectByClick: true
      • clickBySelectEnd: true
    import Selecto from "selecto";
    
    const selecto = new Selecto({
        // The container to add a selection element
        container: document.body,
        // Selecto's root container (No transformed container. (default: null)
        rootContainer: null,
        // The area to drag selection element (default: container)
        dragContainer: Element,
        // Targets to select. You can register a queryselector or an Element.
        selectableTargets: [".target", document.querySelector(".target2")],
        // Whether to select by click (default: true)
        selectByClick: true,
        // Whether to select from the target inside (default: true)
        selectFromInside: true,
        // After the select, whether to select the next target with the selected target (deselected if the target is selected again).
        continueSelect: false,
        // Determines which key to continue selecting the next target via keydown and keyup.
        toggleContinueSelect: "shift",
        // The container for keydown and keyup events
        keyContainer: window,
        // The rate at which the target overlaps the drag area to be selected. (default: 100)
        hitRate: 100,
    });
    
    selecto.on("select", e => {
        e.added.forEach(el => {
            el.classList.add("selected");
        });
        e.removed.forEach(el => {
            el.classList.remove("selected");
        });
    });
    

    Do you want to select accurately?

    Since selecto basically checks using getBoundingClientRect, it is not accurate if the object is rotated or distorted.

    If you want to check accurately, use getElementRect option with the following code

    import Selecto from "selecto";
    import { getElementInfo } from "moveable"; // (13kb function) if you use react, use react-moveable
    
    const selecto = new Selecto({
        ...,
        // (target: HTMLElement | SVGElement ) => { pos1: number[], pos2: number[], pos3: number[], pos4: number[] }
        // pos1: left top
        // pos2: right top
        // pos3: left bottom
        // pos4: right bottom
        getElementRect: getElementInfo,
    });
