Build Responsive Accordions With Vanilla JS And CSS3

Description:

A tiny JavaScript library that helps you create responsive collapsing accordion elements using plain JavaScript and CSS. Ideal for FAQs, tabs, and show/hide UIs.

The accordion library leverages the benefits of CSS Flexbox for fluid layout control, coupled with CSS3 transitions and transforms to deliver sleek expand/collapse animations.

How to use it:

1. The required HTML structure for the accordion UI.

<div class="vnl-accordions">
  <div class="vnl-accordions-item">
    <h3 class="vnl-accordions-title">FAQ 1</h3>
    <div class="vnl-accordions-content">
      <p>
        Answer 1
      </p>
    </div>
    <div class="vnl-accordions-action"></div>
  </div>
  <div class="vnl-accordions-item">
    <h3 class="vnl-accordions-title">FAQ 2</h3>
    <div class="vnl-accordions-content">
      <p>
       Answer 2
      </p>
    </div>
    <div class="vnl-accordions-action"></div>
  </div>
