Responsive Accordion Tabs

JavaScript

Added in 6.3.0, use the Markup of the Accordion or Tabs components to create Responsive Accordion Tabs.

Basics

Either the Accordion Markup or the Tabs Markup can be used to responsively switch between the two components at different breakpoints.

The Accordion should have an id specified, but the plugin will automatically generate one if the id is omitted.

Accordion content should also have an ID, or the # of the href should be specified, otherwise a random id will be generated

The accordion/tabs values can be in any order.

Accordion HTML Markup

edit on codepen button
<ul class="accordion" data-responsive-accordion-tabs="accordion medium-tabs large-accordion">
  <li class="accordion-item is-active" data-accordion-item>
    <a href="#" class="accordion-title">Accordion 1</a>
    <div class="accordion-content" data-tab-content>
      I would start in the open state, due to using the `is-active` state class.
    </div>
  </li>
  <!-- ... -->
</ul>
