Bootstrap 5 — Customizing Navs

Spread the love

Bootstrap 5 is in alpha when this is written and it’s subject to change.

Bootstrap is a popular UI library for any JavaScript apps.

In this article, we’ll look at how to customize navs with Bootstrap 5.

JavaScript Behavior

We can also customize navs to our needs.

For example, we can write:

<ul class="nav nav-tabs" id="myTab" role="tablist">
  <li class="nav-item" role="presentation">
    <a class="nav-link active" id="home-tab" data-toggle="tab" href="#home" role="tab" aria-controls="home" aria-selected="true">Home</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item" role="presentation">
    <a class="nav-link" id="profile-tab" data-toggle="tab" href="#profile" role="tab" aria-controls="profile" aria-selected="false">Profile</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item" role="presentation">
    <a class="nav-link" id="contact-tab" data-toggle="tab" href="#contact" role="tab" aria-controls="contact" aria-selected="false">Contact</a>
  </li>
</ul>

<div class="tab-content" id="myTabContent">
  <div class="tab-pane fade show active" id="home" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="home-tab">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam at neque orci. In vehicula metus eu euismod rhoncus. Pellentesque pharetra ligula sed efficitur ultricies. Quisque et congue metus, id rutrum purus. Maecenas finibus efficitur mauris, quis varius enim elementum a. Phasellus vel aliquet diam. Proin tincidunt eros pellentesque mauris laoreet, nec ullamcorper magna vulputate. Suspendisse potenti. Nullam lobortis ultricies nunc id vulputate. Curabitur pulvinar, lorem ac tempus lobortis, tortor tortor dignissim enim, quis tempor est lacus ut augue. Sed tincidunt lectus urna, ac aliquet velit suscipit a. Nullam tempus sem id nibh vulputate, nec ultricies lorem porttitor. Sed pharetra lacinia odio non sodales.
  </div>

  <div class="tab-pane fade" id="profile" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="profile-tab">Mauris ullamcorper ornare dui at bibendum. Duis sed quam ac purus tincidunt aliquet. Suspendisse potenti. Praesent vitae turpis dui. Fusce ut tincidunt est, ut sagittis mi. Sed euismod pharetra pulvinar. Morbi at facilisis quam. Vestibulum sagittis arcu sit amet scelerisque vestibulum. Nulla nisl libero, ornare et facilisis et, tempus sagittis massa. Sed tincidunt metus non ex ornare, eu elementum lorem sagittis. Nam a sapien eleifend, dignissim purus sit amet, ultrices neque. Suspendisse imperdiet purus eu posuere pellentesque. Nulla facilisi.
  </div>

  <div class="tab-pane fade" id="contact" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="contact-tab">Mauris suscipit metus at felis maximus, a sagittis libero ornare. Sed eu placerat mauris. Cras venenatis, magna sed efficitur tristique, nibh diam mattis neque, non pellentesque turpis nibh in sapien. Proin porttitor sodales risus sit amet imperdiet. Aenean quis pretium sem, quis maximus purus. Pellentesque vestibulum elementum dui ut ultrices. Suspendisse potenti.
  </div>
</div>

We have the tab component by adding the li s with our own structure.

Also, we can add tabs with pills:

<ul class="nav nav-pills mb-3" id="pills-tab" role="tablist">
  <li class="nav-item" role="presentation">
    <a class="nav-link active" id="pills-home-tab" data-toggle="pill" href="#pills-home" role="tab" aria-controls="pills-home" aria-selected="true">Home</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item" role="presentation">
    <a class="nav-link" id="pills-profile-tab" data-toggle="pill" href="#pills-profile" role="tab" aria-controls="pills-profile" aria-selected="false">Profile</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item" role="presentation">
    <a class="nav-link" id="pills-contact-tab" data-toggle="pill" href="#pills-contact" role="tab" aria-controls="pills-contact" aria-selected="false">Contact</a>
  </li>
</ul>
<div class="tab-content" id="pills-tabContent">
  <div class="tab-pane fade show active" id="pills-home" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="pills-home-tab">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam at neque orci. In vehicula metus eu euismod rhoncus. </div>

  <div class="tab-pane fade" id="pills-profile" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="pills-profile-tab">Pellentesque pharetra ligula sed efficitur ultricies. Quisque et congue metus, id rutrum purus.</div>

  <div class="tab-pane fade" id="pills-contact" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="pills-contact-tab">Curabitur pulvinar, lorem ac tempus lobortis, tortor tortor dignissim enim, quis tempor est lacus ut augue.
  </div>
</div>

We add the nav link with pills with the .nav-pills class.

Then we have the content.

The ID of the divs with the class .tab-pane have to match the URLs of the href .

We can also add vertical pills:

<div class="row">
  <div class="col-3">
    <div class="nav flex-column nav-pills" id="v-pills-tab" role="tablist" aria-orientation="vertical">
      <a class="nav-link active" id="v-pills-home-tab" data-toggle="pill" href="#v-pills-home" role="tab" aria-controls="v-pills-home" aria-selected="true">Home</a>

      <a class="nav-link" id="v-pills-profile-tab" data-toggle="pill" href="#v-pills-profile" role="tab" aria-controls="v-pills-profile" aria-selected="false">Profile</a>

      <a class="nav-link" id="v-pills-messages-tab" data-toggle="pill" href="#v-pills-messages" role="tab" aria-controls="v-pills-messages" aria-selected="false">Messages</a>

      <a class="nav-link" id="v-pills-settings-tab" data-toggle="pill" href="#v-pills-settings" role="tab" aria-controls="v-pills-settings" aria-selected="false">Settings</a>
    </div>
  </div>

  <div class="col-9">
    <div class="tab-content" id="v-pills-tabContent">
      <div class="tab-pane fade show active" id="v-pills-home" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="v-pills-home-tab">urabitur pulvinar, lorem ac tempus lobortis, tortor tortor dignissim enim, quis tempor est lacus ut augue.</div>

      <div class="tab-pane fade" id="v-pills-profile" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="v-pills-profile-tab">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam at neque orci.  </div>

      <div class="tab-pane fade" id="v-pills-messages" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="v-pills-messages-tab">In vehicula metus eu euismod rhoncus. Pellentesque pharetra ligula sed efficitur ultricies. </div>

      <div class="tab-pane fade" id="v-pills-settings" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="v-pills-settings-tab">Proin tincidunt eros pellentesque mauris laoreet, nec ullamcorper magna vulputate. </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

We have the nav links in the nav in the .col-3 class.

The items are in a div with the .nav-pills class.

flex-column makes the vertical.

Also, we have the right column with the divs with the .tab-pane class to add the content to display when we click on the links.

If the href matches the ID of the tab-pane divs, then the content will be shown when we add the classes.

Conclusion

We can layout tabs and content our way.

The tabs can be vertically and put the content beside it.
