CSS3 Animated Tabs Plugin - jQuery Tabify

The Tabify jQuery plugin is a simple implementation of tabs with slick CSS3 animations. The plugin is pretty much the bare minimum you need to get a nice looking tabs system working. It has all the features you need, easy styling, and it's fully responsive.

How to use it:

1. The required HTML structure for the tabs system.

<div class="tab-group">
  <section id="tab1" title="Long Tab Name">
    <h3>
      Content 1
    </h3>
    <p>
      Aliquam eleifend magna mauris, id egestas eros dictum ac. Vivamus ac turpis at nisi mattis aliquam. In hac habitasse platea dictumst. 
    </p>
  </section>
  <section id="tab2" title="Another Tab">
    <h3>
      Content 2
    </h3>
    <p>
      Donec congue ligula non risus dictum, eget vehicula diam mattis. Pellentesque at ante ipsum. Suspendisse rutrum elementum dolor, non congue risus sagittis id.
    </p>
  </section>
  <section id="tab3" title="Tab 3">
    <h3>
      Content 3
    </h3>
    <p>
      Vivamus sem odio, mattis vel dui aliquet, iaculis lacinia nibh. Vestibulum tincidunt, lacus vel semper pretium, nulla sapien blandit massa, et tempor turpis urna eu mi.
    </p>
  </section>
  ...
</div>

2. Basic tabs styling. Feel free to override the followng CSS snippets to create your own styles.

.tab-group {
  position: relative;
  border: 1px solid #eee;
  margin-top: 2.5em;
  border-radius: 0 0 10px 10px;
}

.tab-group section {
  opacity: 0;
  height: 0;
  padding: 0 1em;
  overflow: hidden;
  transition: opacity 0.4s ease, height 0.4s ease;
}

.tab-group section.active {
  opacity: 1;
  height: auto;
  overflow: visible;
}

.tab-nav {
  list-style: none;
  margin: -2.5em -1px 0 0;
  padding: 0;
  height: 2.5em;
  overflow: hidden;
}

.tab-nav li {
  display: inline;
}

.tab-nav li a {
  top: 1px;
  position: relative;
  display: block;
  float: left;
  border-radius: 10px 10px 0 0;
  background: #eee;
  line-height: 2em;
  padding: 0 1em;
  text-decoration: none;
  color: grey;
  margin-top: .5em;
  margin-right: 1px;
  transition: background .2s ease, line-height .2s ease, margin .2s ease;
}

.tab-nav li.active a {
  background: #6EB590;
  color: white;
  line-height: 2.5em;
  margin-top: 0;
}

3. Load the requried jQuery library right before the closing body tag.

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

4. The main Tabify() function.

;(function(defaults, $, window, document, undefined) {

  'use strict';

  $.extend({
    // Function to change the default properties of the plugin
    // Usage:
    // jQuery.tabifySetup({property:'Custom value'});
    tabifySetup : function(options) {

      return $.extend(defaults, options);
    }
  }).fn.extend({
    // Usage:
    // jQuery(selector).tabify({property:'value'});
    tabify : function(options) {

      options = $.extend({}, defaults, options);

      return $(this).each(function() {
        var $element, tabHTML, $tabs, $sections;
        
        $element = $(this);
        $sections = $element.children();
        
        // Build tabHTML
        tabHTML = '<ul class="tab-nav">';
        $sections.each(function() {
          if ($(this).attr("title") && $(this).attr("id")) {
            tabHTML += '<li><a href="#' + $(this).attr("id") + '">' + $(this).attr("title") + '</a></li>';
          }
        });
        tabHTML += '</ul>';
        
        // Prepend navigation
        $element.prepend(tabHTML);
        
        // Load tabs
        $tabs = $element.find('.tab-nav li');
        
        // Functions
        var activateTab = function(id) {
          $tabs.filter('.active').removeClass('active');
          $sections.filter('.active').removeClass('active');
          $tabs.has('a[href="' + id + '"]').addClass('active');
          $sections.filter(id).addClass('active');
        }
        
        // Setup events
        $tabs.on('click', function(e){
          activateTab($(this).find('a').attr('href'));
          e.preventDefault();
        });
        
        // Activate first tab
        activateTab($tabs.first().find('a').attr('href'));
        
      });
    }
  });
})({
  property : "value",
  otherProperty : "value"
}, jQuery, window, document);

5. Initialize the tabs system. That's it.

$('.tab-group').tabify();
