List tree

The list tree pattern can be used to show a directory style listing, such as a list of files and folders within a directory.

Each directory can be opened or collapse using aria-hidden, set true for open and false to close on the nested list. Using JS this can be changed and should also update the aria-expanded attribute on the folder element.


To import just this component into your project, copy the snippet below and include it in your main Sass file.

// import Vanilla and include base mixins
// this only needs to happen once in a given project
@import 'vanilla-framework';
@include vf-base;

@include vf-p-list-tree;

For more information see Customising Vanilla in your projects, which includes overrides and importing instructions.
