Add ref prop instead of hooks

See original GitHub issue

It would be much easier if instead of using hooks like useScrollToBottom just add a ref prop and add all the methods inside. What I mean:

const App = () => {
   const scrollRef = useRef();

   const scroll = () => {
     //and all other hooks like useSticky
     if(scrollRef.current.isSticky()) console.log('is sticky')
   return (
        <ScrollToBottom mode="bottom" ref={scrollRef}>
             <button onClick={scroll}>
              <Content />
