Metro Tabs makes uses of jQuery and plain HTML/CSS to create a fashion, dynamic, easy-to-style tab menu from Javascript arrays.

How to use it:

1. Create the html structure for the tab menu.

<div class='container'>
  <div class='n'>Metro Tabs</div>
  <div class='p'>
    <div class='tc'></div>
    <div class='m'></div>
  </div>
</div>

2. The basic CSS styles.

.container {
  background-color: #1a1a1a;
  box-shadow: inset 0 0 30px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3);
  border: 1px solid #333333;
  border-radius: 4px;
  padding: 3vh;
  position: absolute;
  transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
  top: 50%;
  left: 50%;
}

.container .n {
  margin-bottom: 2vh;
  color: #262626;
  font-size: 26px;
}

.container .p {
  box-shadow: 0 3px 6px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.16), 0 3px 6px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.23);
  background: linear-gradient(#333333, #1a1a1a);
  border-radius: inherit;
  padding: 3vh;
}

.container .p .tc { display: flex; }

.container .p .t {
  font-size: 16px;
  transition: background 0.1s, padding 0.5s;
  background: #1a1a1a;
  color: #666666;
  padding: 2vh;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #666666;
  cursor: pointer;
}

.container .p .t:nth-child(1) { border-top-left-radius: 4px; }

.container .p .t:nth-last-child(1) { border-top-right-radius: 4px; }

.container .p .ta {
  transition: background 0.1s, padding 0.5s;
  background: linear-gradient(#404040, transparent);
  border-bottom: 0;
  margin-bottom: 2px;
  color: #999999;
  padding: 2vh 3vh 2vh 3vh;
}

.container .p .m {
  display: block;
  padding: 2vh;
  background: linear-gradient(transparent, #1a1a1a);
  border-bottom: 1px solid #666666;
  border-bottom-right-radius: 4px;
  border-bottom-left-radius: 4px;
}

.container .p .m .ip {
  display: none;
  width: 100%;
}

.container .p .m .ip .ti {
  color: #999999;
  background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.1);
  padding: 2vh;
  box-shadow: 0 0 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.05);
}

.container .p .m .ip .in {
  color: #666666;
  border: 1px solid rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.1);
  margin-top: 1.5vh;
  padding: 2vh;
  font-size: 14px;
}

3. Insert the needed jQuery JavaScript library into the page.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-tsQFqpEReu7ZLhBV2VZlAu7zcOV+rXbYlF2cqB8txI/8aZajjp4Bqd+V6D5IgvKT" 
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>

4. Define the data (tabs, title, content) for the tab menu.

tabs = ["Tab 1","Tab 2","Tab 3"] 

title = ["Title 1","Title 2","Title 3"] 

info = ["Menu Content 1",
        "Menu Content 2",
        "Menu Content 3"
]

5. Set the space after the last tab.

gap = 1.25

6. The main JavaScript (jQuery script) to activate the tab menu.

init = () => {
  gTabs()
  $(".t:nth-child(1)").addClass("ta")
  $(".ti").text(title[0])
  $(".in").text(info[0])
  $(".ip:nth-child(1)").fadeIn(400)
}

gTabs = () => {
  for (i=0; i<tabs.length; i++) {
    $(".tc").append("<div class='t'></div>")
  }

  $(".t").each(function(i) {
    $(this).text(tabs[i])
    $(".m").append("<div class='ip'><div class='ti'></div><div class='in'></div></div>")
  })
  dWidth()
}

dWidth = () => {
  var TCW = $(".tc").width()
  $(".in").css("width", TCW*gap+"px")
}

init()

$(".t").click(function() {
  $(".t").removeClass("ta")
  $(this).addClass("ta")
  
  $(".ip").fadeOut(200).delay(200)
  
  var cS = $(this).text()
  for (i=0; i<tabs.length; i++) {
    if (cS == tabs[i]) {
      p = i
      b = i+1
    }
  }

  
  $(".ip:nth-child("+b+") .ti").text(title[p])
  $(".ip:nth-child("+b+") .in").text(info[p])
  $(".ip:nth-child("+b+")").fadeIn(200)
  
})
