  1. directive in module ngTouch

Specify custom behavior when an element is swiped to the left on a touchscreen device. A leftward swipe is a quick, right-to-left slide of the finger. Though ngSwipeLeft is designed for touch-based devices, it will work with a mouse click and drag too.

To disable the mouse click and drag functionality, add ng-swipe-disable-mouse to the ng-swipe-left or ng-swipe-right DOM Element.

Requires the ngTouch module to be installed.
