I’m building a news application, and I have a few requirements for the way users browse news categories and stories.
I want users to be able to swipe left and right to browse news stories, but up and down to change news category.
I experimented with multiple slide boxes, but is limited (and forced to modify the module) when loading content conditionally - I only want images/videos to be loaded, when they are visible on screen. Hence, I’m looking for something a bit more custom, I guess. The news stories will always fit within the screen (and thus no scrolling is required on the content), as the full story will be displayed in a modal if one decides to dig deeper (a modal that supports standard scrolling).
Any ideas on where to start, or how you would approach this?
