Vue Bootstrap Breadcrumb

Vue Breadcrumbs - Bootstrap 4 & Material Design

Vue Breadcrumbs indicate the current page’s location within a navigational hierarchy that automatically adds separators via CSS.


Overview

Separators are automatically added in CSS through ::before and content.



        <template>
          <div>
            <mdb-breadcrumb>
              <mdb-breadcrumb-item active>Home</mdb-breadcrumb-item>
            </mdb-breadcrumb>
            <mdb-breadcrumb>
              <mdb-breadcrumb-item><a href="#">Home</a></mdb-breadcrumb-item>
              <mdb-breadcrumb-item active>Library</mdb-breadcrumb-item>
            </mdb-breadcrumb>
            <mdb-breadcrumb>
              <mdb-breadcrumb-item><a href="#">Home</a></mdb-breadcrumb-item>
              <mdb-breadcrumb-item><a href="#">Library</a></mdb-breadcrumb-item>
              <mdb-breadcrumb-item active>Data</mdb-breadcrumb-item>
            </mdb-breadcrumb>
          </div>
        </template>

      


        <script>
          import { mdbBreadcrumb, mdbBreadcrumbItem } from 'mdbvue';
          export default {
            name: 'Breadcrumb',
            components: {
              mdbBreadcrumb,
              mdbBreadcrumbItem
            }
          }
        </script>

      

Changing the separator

Separators are automatically added in CSS through ::before and content. They can be changed by changing $breadcrumb-divider. The quote function is needed to generate the quotes around a string, so if you want > as a separator, you can use this:



        $breadcrumb-divider: quote(">");

      

It’s also possible to use a base64 embedded SVG icon:



        $breadcrumb-divider:
        url(data:image/svg+xml;base64,PHN2ZyB4bWxucz0iaHR0cDovL3d3dy53My5vcmcvMjAwMC9zdmciIHdpZHRoPSI4IiBoZWlnaHQ9IjgiPjxwYXRoIGQ9Ik0yLjUgMEwxIDEuNSAzLjUgNCAxIDYuNSAyLjUgOGw0LTQtNC00eiIgZmlsbD0iY3VycmVudENvbG9yIi8+PC9zdmc+);

      

The separator can be removed by setting $breadcrumb-divider to none:



        $breadcrumb-divider: none;

      

Accessibility

Since breadcrumbs provide navigation, it’s a good idea to add a meaningful label such as aria-label="breadcrumb" to describe the type of navigation provided in the <nav> element, as well as applying an aria-current="page" to the last item of the set to indicate that it represents the current page.

For more information, see the WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices for the breadcrumb pattern.


Examples

With breadcrumbs you can use different types of colors or you can implement icons or images with our breadcrumbs.

Here are some examples.
