jQuery Plugin For Vertical and Horizontal Tabs - jQuery Tabs

This is a jQuery plugin used for generating simple, easy-to-style, vertical and/or horizontal tabs from plain html structure.


$ npm install jquery-tabs --save

How to use it:

1. Import the jquery-tabs into your project or directly insert the JavaScript file jquery.tabs.min.js into your document.

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

2. The basic HTML structure for the tabs interface.

<div class="jq-tab-wrapper" id="myTab">
  <div class="jq-tab-menu">
    <div class="jq-tab-title active" data-tab="1">Tab 1</div>
    <div class="jq-tab-title" data-tab="2">Tab 2</div>
    <div class="jq-tab-title" data-tab="3">Tab 3</div>
  <div class="jq-tab-content-wrapper">
    <div class="jq-tab-content active" data-tab="1">
      Tab 1 content here
    <div class="jq-tab-content active" data-tab="2">
      Tab 2 content here
    <div class="jq-tab-content active" data-tab="3">
      Tab 3 content here

3. Initialize the plugin to create a default (vertical) tabs interface.


4. Change the direction of the tabs interface to 'horizontal'.

  direction: 'horizontal'

5. Set the duration in milliseconds when fading in/out tabbed content.

  duration: 400

6. Change the default CSS classes.

  tabContentClass: 'jq-tab-content'
