Tabs make it easy to explore, switch between different views and enable content organization at a high level, such as different data sets or functional aspects of an app.

Tabs are really powerfull and have deep integration with Vue Core features and router.

More features for tabs will be come in the next weeks, like pagination scroll and touch events. :)

Navigational tabs

Sometimes you may need a tab to be the main navigational element of your application and you can do this. Tabs integrate with Vue Router by default and will be able to use single tab just like a regular button or link, by using the router-link props. The tabs will sync with the page URL and will produce effects when transitioning between tabs. AUTOMATIC!

Seamless integration with Vue Router

Tab with inner content

In the previous example, the tabs worked just like navigation buttons, without content. With that you would need to render the content by yourself. Although this is not a hard thing, because you can use Vue Router, you can pass arbitrary content to your tabs. And it can also work syncing with router:

Content syncing with Router


Tabs have four types of alignments for the navigation buttons: Left, Center, Right and Fixed. You can use them with any tabs:

With different hue colors


Tabs accept icons, to make it easier for your user to assimilate the contents of a tab:

With svg support

Custom Template

You can use a custom template for the navigation buttons. This will be applied to all navigation buttons and allows you to make updates on your tab, like this great example of unread/new content: Simple, uh?
