Usage

  • This component makes use of the HTML details element.
  • To toggle the default state, the open attribute: <details class="vf-details" open>.

Variants

I'm a detail Something small enough to escape casual notice.
Nunjucks syntax

Depending on your environment you'll want to use render or include. As a rule of thumb: server-side use include, precompiled browser use render. If you're using vf-eleventy you should use include.

Using include

You'll need to pass a context object from your code or Yaml file (example), as well as the path to the Nunjucks template. Nunjucks' include is an abstraction of render and provides some additional portability.


{% set context fromYourYamlFile %}
- or -
{% set context = {
  "component-type": "block",
  "details_open": true,
  "details_summary": "I'm a detail",
  "details_content": "Something small enough to escape casual notice."
}
 %}
{% include "../path_to/vf-details/vf-details.njk" %}
                

Using render

This approach is best for bare-bones Nunjucks environments, such as precompiled templates with the Nunjucks slim runtime where include is not be available.

{% render '@vf-details', {
  "component-type": "block",
  "details_open": true,
  "details_summary": "I'm a detail",
  "details_content": "Something small enough to escape casual notice."
} %}
                
HTML
<details class="vf-details" open>
  <summary class="vf-details--summary">I'm a detail</summary>
  Something small enough to escape casual notice.
</details>
