Tiny Nested Tabs With Vanilla JavaScript – Tabbis.js

Description:

Tabbis.js is a lightweight, pure JavaScript library for generating nice, clean, nested, fully accessible tabs interface from plain HTML structure.

How to use it:

Put the tabbis.js and tabbis.css into the webpage.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="tabbis.css" />
<script src="tabbis.js"></script>

Create a normal, flat tabs component:

<div data-tabs>
  <div>Tab1</div>
  <div data-active>Active Tab</div>
  <div>Tab3</div>
</div>

<div data-panes>
  <div>Pane1</div>
  <div>Pane2</div>
  <div>Pane3</div>
</div>

If you want a complex tabs component which contains as many sub tabs.

<div data-tabs>
  <div>Tab1</div>
  <div>Tab2</div>
  <div>Tab3</div>
</div>

<div data-panes>
  <div>Pane1</div>
  <div>
    <div data-tabs>
      <div>Tab4</div>
      <div>Tab5</div>
    </div>

    <div data-panes>
      <div>Pane4</div>
      <div>
        <div data-tabs>
          <div>Tab6</div>
          <div>Tab7</div>
        </div>

        <div data-panes>
          <div>Pane6</div>
          <div>Pane7</div>
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
  <div>Pane3</div>
</div>

Initialize the Tabbis and done.

tabbis();

Determine whether or not to remember the open/close state. Default: false.

tabbis({
  memory: true
});

Default CSS classes & attributes.

tabbis({
  paneGroup: '[data-panes]',
  prefix: '', // CSS prefix
  tabActive: '[data-active]',
  tabGroup: '[data-tabs]'
});

Enable/disable keyboard navigation. Defaults to true.

tabbis({
  keyboardNavigation: true
});

Set the initial tab index when no [data-active]. Defaults to 0 (tab 1).

tabbis({
  tabActiveFallback: 0
});

You can also customize the trigger event as follows. Defaults to mouse click.

tabbis({
  trigger: 'mousehover'
});

Trigger an event when a tab is activated.

document.addEventListener("tabbis", e => {
  let data = e.detail;
  console.log(data.tab);
  console.log(data.pane);
}, false );
