Chips

React Bootstrap 5 Chips component

Responsive chips built with Bootstrap 5, React 17 and Material Design 2.0. Chips (aka tags) make it easier to categorize content and browse ie. through different articles from the same category.

Bootstrap tags and chips categorize content with the use of text and icons. Tags and chips make it easier to browse throughout articles, comments or pages. Their main goal is to provide your visitors with an intuitive way of getting what they want. Just consider, how convenient it is to find all the articles related to web development just by using a tag.

Note: Read the API tab to find all available options and advanced customization
