Switch Between Content Sections With jQuery Easy-Tabs Plugin

A tiny yet fully customizable tabs system built with jQuery that enables the user to switch between sectioned (tabbed) content by clicking on the associated tabs.

How to use it:

1. The required HTML structure for the tabs & tabbed content.

<div id="example" class="zeus-tab" onchage="handleTabClick">
  <ul class="zeus-tab-title">
    <li class="tab-current">Tab 1</li>
    <li>Tab 2</li>
    <li>Tab 3</li>
  <div class="zeus-tab-content">
    <div class="zeus-tab-item tab-show">
      Tab 1 Content
    <div class="zeus-tab-item tab-show">
      Tab 2 Content
    <div class="zeus-tab-item tab-show">
      Tab 3 Content

2. The required CSS styles for the tabs system. Copy and paste the following CSS rules into your document.

.zeus-tab {
  margin: 10px 0;

.zeus-tab > .zeus-tab-title {
  padding: 0;
  position: relative;
  left: 0;
  height: 40px;
  white-space: nowrap;
  font-size: 0;

.zeus-tab-title > li {
  display: inline-block;
  vertical-align: middle;
  font-size: 14px;
  position: relative;
  line-height: 40px;
  min-width: 65px;
  padding: 0 15px;
  text-align: center;
  cursor: pointer;
  list-style: none;

.zeus-tab-title .tab-current {
  color: #000;

.zeus-tab-content {
  padding: 10px;

.zeus-tab-content > .zeus-tab-item {
  display: none;

.zeus-tab-content .tab-show {
  display: block !important;

.zeus-tab .zeus-tab-title {
  border-bottom: 1px solid #E6E6E6;

.zeus-tab > .zeus-tab-title .tab-current {
  border-width: 1px;
  border-style: solid;
  border-color: #E6E6E6;
  border-bottom-color: #FFFFFF;
  border-radius: 2px 2px 0 0;
  pointer-events: none;
  background-color: #FFFFFF;

3. Or directly load the tab.css in the document. This stylesheet also provides 2 beautiful themes for your design needs:

  • brief: Add the zeus-tab-brief class to the top container.
  • card: Add the zeus-tab-card class to the top container.
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/tab.css" />

4. Load the main JavaScript file tabs.js after jQuery. That's it.

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

5. Handle the click event on the tabs.

function handleTab1Click(li, index) {
  console.log('I Just Clicked Tab '+ index);
