Chakra UI offers two main components for Disclosure: accordions and tabs. Accordions and tabs are user interface components that can be used to organize and display content in a structured and user-friendly way.
In Chakra UI, the Accordion component is a wrapper that uses cloneElement to pass props to AccordionItem children, while the AccordionItem component is a child of the Accordion component that can be used to display content in a collapsible and expandable manner.
Accordion 🔗: a UI pattern where content panels are visible often at a time. The Accordion component is a vertically stacked set of interactive headings (or "panels") that each contain a title and a section of content. The primary use case for this is to collapse and expand content panels to provide a more manageable view to the user and reduce information overload. When a user clicks on a panel's title, the content section expands to reveal the content. If another panel is clicked, the previous panel often automatically closes, and the new panel's content expands.
Tabs 🔗: can be used to create tabbed interfaces in React applications, allowing users to switch between different sections of content without leaving the page. Tabs are also a common pattern for segmenting identical data into multiple blocks. The Tabs component is used to organize and allow navigation between groups of content that are related and at the same level of hierarchy. In essence, they are like "lightweight" pages within a page. Each Tab is associated with TabPanel, and only one TabPanel is active and visible at a time. When a user clicks on a different Tab, its associated TabPanel becomes visible, and the previous TabPanel is hidden.
Both Accordions and Tabs can be used to improve the user experience by organizing content in a structured and easy-to-navigate way.
