Challenge: Tabs

Front-End Challenges Club - Challenge #005

Tabs! So many websites have them and so many create an accessibility nightmare, but friends, that will change with this challenge and its subsequent solution.

What you’re building permalink

Demo shows tabbed interface. The user clicks the second tab, “Specifications”, which selects it. The user then resets back to the default tab.

The brief permalink

Take the design assets and build and these tabs with whatever front-end technology you want.

Make sure that your challenge solution does the following as a minimum:

  • Uses semantic elements
  • Is usable with mouse, touch and keyboard

Bonus points awarded if:

  • Your solution is usable without JavaScript enabled
  • Your solution is lightweight and performant
  • Your solution is fully accessible and uses appropriate aria attributes
  • You create appropriate transitions and/or animations between states
