Navigation component

npm version


The vf-navigation component is a horizontal list of links to key pages of the website.


Global navigation variant

This variant of the vf-navigation is to be used as part of the vf-global-header to give a few 'quick links' that will be on every page.

Main navigation variant

This variant of the vf-navigation can be used to link to sections of the site, or part of the site the parent section.

This is typically placed below the vf-hero component but can be also found below the vf-global-header.

There should be only one use of vf-navigation--main on a page.

On this page navigation variant

The vfNavigationOnThisPage JavaScript adds a quality-of-life improvement by automatically activating sections as the user scrolls them into view on the page. This sticky element allows users to quickly jump between sections on longer pages.

  • There should be only one use of vf-navigation--on-this-page on a page.
  • Anchor targets need an element id: id="container-1". This can be added to any item on the page, but would most logically be added to a vf-grid, embl-grid or vf-section-header element.
  • Ensure data-vf-js-navigation-on-this-page-container="true" is present on .vf-navigation__list.
  • Ensure each anchor link has a data-vf-js-navigation-on-this-page-link.


This component is distributed with npm. After installing npm, you can install the vf-navigation with this command.

$ yarn add --dev @visual-framework/vf-navigation


The source files included are written in Sass(scss). You can point your Sass include-path at your node_modules directory and import it like this.

@import "@visual-framework/vf-navigation/index.scss";

Make sure you import Sass requirements along with the modules. You can use a project boilerplate or the vf-sass-starter


If using the vf-navigation--on-this-page variant, you should import this component in ./components/vf-component-rollup/scripts.js or your other JS process:

import { vfNavigationOnThisPage } from "vf-navigation/vf-navigation.js";
// Or import directly
// import { vfGaIndicateLoaded } from '../components/raw/vf-navigation/vf-navigation.js';




npm i @visual-framework/vf-navigation
