Tabs only require a tabs container and a <ul> list.
The default tabs style has a single border at the bottom.

<div class="tabs">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active"><a>Pictures</a></li>
    <li><a>Music</a></li>
    <li><a>Videos</a></li>
    <li><a>Documents</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>
<div class="tabs">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active"><a>Pictures</a></li>
    <li><a>Music</a></li>
    <li><a>Videos</a></li>
    <li><a>Documents</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>

Alignment #

To align the tabs list, use the is-centered or is-right modifier on the .tabs container:

<div class="tabs is-centered">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active"><a>Pictures</a></li>
    <li><a>Music</a></li>
    <li><a>Videos</a></li>
    <li><a>Documents</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>
<div class="tabs is-right">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active"><a>Pictures</a></li>
    <li><a>Music</a></li>
    <li><a>Videos</a></li>
    <li><a>Documents</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>

You can choose between 3 additional sizes: is-small is-medium and is-large.

<div class="tabs is-small">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active"><a>Pictures</a></li>
    <li><a>Music</a></li>
    <li><a>Videos</a></li>
    <li><a>Documents</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>
<div class="tabs is-medium">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active"><a>Pictures</a></li>
    <li><a>Music</a></li>
    <li><a>Videos</a></li>
    <li><a>Documents</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>
<div class="tabs is-large">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active"><a>Pictures</a></li>
    <li><a>Music</a></li>
    <li><a>Videos</a></li>
    <li><a>Documents</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>

Styles #

If you want a more classic style with borders, just append the is-boxed modifier.
<div class="tabs is-boxed">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active">
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-image"></i></span>
        <span>Pictures</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-music"></i></span>
        <span>Music</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-film"></i></span>
        <span>Videos</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-file-text-o"></i></span>
        <span>Documents</span>
      </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</div>

If you want mutually exclusive tabs (like radio buttons where clicking one deselects all other ones), use the is-toggle modifier.

<div class="tabs is-toggle">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active">
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-image"></i></span>
        <span>Pictures</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-music"></i></span>
        <span>Music</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-film"></i></span>
        <span>Videos</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-file-text-o"></i></span>
        <span>Documents</span>
      </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</div>

If you want the tabs to take up the whole width available, use is-fullwidth.

<div class="tabs is-fullwidth">
  <ul>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon"><i class="fa fa-angle-left"></i></span>
        <span>Left</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon"><i class="fa fa-angle-up"></i></span>
        <span>Up</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span>Right</span>
        <span class="icon"><i class="fa fa-angle-right"></i></span>
      </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</div>

Combining #

You can combine different modifiers. For example, you can have centered boxed tabs, or fullwidth toggle ones.

<div class="tabs is-centered is-boxed">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active">
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-image"></i></span>
        <span>Pictures</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-music"></i></span>
        <span>Music</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fa fa-film"></i></span>
        <span>Videos</span>
