How can I have the a slider change its size based on the content?

I need a slide that changes its height based on what is contained in it, just like a normal div would. Basically I have a slide on the bottom of my screen (similar to spotify’s next song slider on their app) and I want it to expand when clicked, however, the fixed height of the slide is restricting the expansion. From what I understand, the ionic 2 slider component used to have an autoHeight option in the beta, but it seems that it was removed. Are there any other options?
