<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.2.min.js"></script>    
<script src="plugin.tabit.js"></script>

2. Wrap your html content into the DIV elements. data-tab-title attribute is used to specify the name of the tabs.

<div class="demo" data-tab-title="First Tab">
  ... Content 1 ...

<div class="demo" data-tab-title="Second Tab">
  ... Content 2 ...

<div class="demo" data-tab-title="Third Tab">
  ... Content 3 ...


3. Call the plugin with default settings.


4. Style the tab slider in the CSS.

.wrap-tab-contents {
  width: 100%;
  float: left;

.tabs .tab {
  float: left;
  padding: 5px;
  margin: 0 10px 10px 0;
  border-bottom: 3px solid #eee;
  color: #aaa;

  color: #000;
  border-bottom: 3px solid #6C9;

.tab-contents { position: relative; }
