Quick question: which version of Sass are you using?

Tabs

Simple responsive horizontal navigation tabs, with different styles

The Bulma tabs are a straightforward navigation component that come in a variety of versions. They only require the following structure:

  • a tabs container
  • a <ul> HTML element
  • a list of <li> HTML element
  • <a> HTML anchor elements for each link

The default tabs style has a single border at the bottom.

HTML

<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:

HTML

<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>

HTML

<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>

Icons #

You can use any of the Font Awesome icons.

HTML

<div class="tabs is-centered">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active">
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-image" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Pictures</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-music" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Music</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-film" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Videos</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="far fa-file-alt" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Documents</span>
      </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</div>

Sizes #

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

HTML

<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>

HTML

<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>

HTML

<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.

HTML

<div class="tabs is-boxed">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active">
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-image" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Pictures</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-music" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Music</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-film" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Videos</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="far fa-file-alt" aria-hidden="true"></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.

HTML

<div class="tabs is-toggle">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active">
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-image" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Pictures</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-music" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Music</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-film" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Videos</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="far fa-file-alt" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Documents</span>
      </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</div>

If you use both is-toggle and is-toggle-rounded, the first and last items will be rounded.

HTML

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

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

HTML

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

Combining #

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

HTML

<div class="tabs is-centered is-boxed">
  <ul>
    <li class="is-active">
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-image" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Pictures</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-music" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Music</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="fas fa-film" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Videos</span>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a>
        <span class="icon is-small"><i class="far fa-file-alt" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>
        <span>Documents</span>
      </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</div>
