Organic Tabs is a lightweight jQuery plugin to create an adaptive tabs interface where the tabbed panel will auto expand / collapse according to the height of its inner content. Licensed under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 3.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>

2. Create tabbed panels with unique IDs.

<div id="tab-1">
  Panel 1
