Responsive Metro Style Tabs Plugin For jQuery

A very small jQuery script used to create a responsive, Windows Metro-style tabbed interface with tiled tab navigation links.

How to use it:

1. Create the tab navigation as this:

<ul class="tab-nav">
  <li class="magenta"><a href="#tab1">Tadadb1</a></li>
  <li class="purple"><a href="#tab2">Tab2</a></li>
  <li class="orange"><a href="#tab3">Tab3</a></li>
  <li class="blue"><a href="#tab4">Tab4</a></li>
  <li class="green"><a href="#tab5">Tab5</a></li>
  <li class="lime"><a href="#tab6">Tab6</a></li>

2. Style the tab navigation and make the navigation links fully responsive using CSS flexbox.

.tab-nav {
  list-style-type: none;
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  display: flex;
  flex-wrap: wrap;
  align-items: center;
  margin: 0 -5px;

.tab-nav li {
  display: inline-block;
  text-align: center;
  flex-grow: 1;
  margin: 0 5px 10px;

.tab-nav li:hover { opacity: .95; }

.tab-nav li a {
  padding: 30px;
  display: block;
  text-decoration: none;
  color: white;

3. Create the tabbed content:

<div class="content active" id="tab1">
  <h1>Tab 1</h1>
  <p>Tab 1 content</p>


<div class="content active" id="tab6">
  <h1>Tab 6</h1>
  <p>Tab 6 content</p>

4. Style the tabbed content in the CSS:

.content {
  color: #FFF;
  padding: 25px;
  display: none;
} { display: block; }

5. Put the latest version of jQuery library at the bottom of the webpage.

<script src="//"></script>

6. Activate the tabs interface.

// Give the first class to the first content
var firstClass = $('.tab-nav li:first').attr('class');

// Align classes of tabs and contents
$('.tab-nav li').each(function(index, val) {
  var allClass = $(this).attr('class');

// On click event to change contents
$('.tab-nav li a').on('click', function() {
  var hrefAttr = $(this).attr('href');
  var colorClass = $(this).parent().attr('class');

  $(hrefAttr + '.content').attr('id', hrefAttr.slice(1)).addClass('active');
