Bootstrap 5 Chips

Posted on



What are Bootstrap Chips?

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.




Installation



Manual installation (zip package)

To take advantage of our Bootstrap images component and use them in your project, you first need to install the MDB 5 Free package




MDB CLI

Watch our Quick Start Tutorial to discover and use the full potential of MDB 5 and MDB CLI




NPM



Prerequisites

Before starting the project make sure to install Node LTS (12.x.x recommended).



Installation

To install MDB UI KIT in your project easily type the following command in the terminal:

npm i mdb-ui-kit 
Enter fullscreen mode

Exit fullscreen mode



Importing JS modules

You can import the entire library or just individual modules:

import * as mdb from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // lib
import { Input } from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // module 
Enter fullscreen mode

Exit fullscreen mode



Importing CSS file

To import MDB stylesheet please use the following syntax:

@import '~mdb-ui-kit/css/mdb.min.css'; 
Enter fullscreen mode

Exit fullscreen mode



Importing SCSS modules

You can also import individual SCSS modules. To do it properly, we recommend to copy them from the node_modules/mdb-ui-kit/src/scss location directly to your project and import in the same way as CSS files.



Webpack integration

You can significantly speed up the process of creating a new project based on Webpack using our Starter.




CDN

Installation via CDN is one of the easiest methods of integrating MDB UI KIT with your project. Just copy the latest compiled JS script tag and CSS link tag from cdnjs to the application.

Don’t forget to add also Font Awesome and Roboto font if you need. Here’s an example code:



CSS
<!-- Font Awesome -->
<link
  href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/5.15.1/css/all.min.css"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
<!-- Google Fonts -->
<link
  href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:300,400,500,700&display=swap"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
<!-- MDB -->
<link
  href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mdb-ui-kit/3.3.0/mdb.min.css"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
Enter fullscreen mode

Exit fullscreen mode



JS
<!-- MDB -->
<script
  type="text/javascript"
  src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mdb-ui-kit/3.3.0/mdb.min.js"
></script>
Enter fullscreen mode

Exit fullscreen mode




Customization



Basic example

Chips can be used to represent small blocks of information. They are most commonly used either for contacts or for tags.
