Minimal Accordion Component Based On Description List - Ask.JS

Ask.js is a tiny jQuery plugin that helps you generate a basic FAQ accordion using the Description List element: <dl />, <dt />, and <dd />.

How to use it:

1. Add questions and answers to the FAQ accordion.

<dl class="questions">
  <dt>Question 1</dt>
  <dd>Answer 1</dd>
  <dt>Question 2</dt>
  <dd>Answer 2</dd>
  <dt>Question 3</dt>
  <dd>Answer 3</dd>

2. Add the Ask.js JavaScript library to the page.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/ask.js"></script>

3. The example CSS to style your FAQ accordion.

dl.questions {
  background: #DCE3E5;

dl.questions dt {
  background: #E8ECEE url('plus.svg') right center no-repeat;
  background-size: 22px;
  background-origin: content-box;
  cursor: pointer;
  padding: 15px;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #DCE3E5;

dl.questions dd {
  padding: 15px;
  background: #DCE3E5;

dl.questions .expanded_img {
  background: #E8ECEE url('minus.svg') right center no-repeat;
  background-size: 15px;
  background-origin: content-box;
  cursor: pointer;

4. You can also create a custom toggle element that can be used to show/hide all questions with a single click.

 <input class="open" type="button" value="Toggle All">
