Cards

Cards, along with List View, is a one more great way to contain and orginize your information. Cards contains unique related data, for example, a photo, text, and link all about a single subject. Cards are typically an entry point to more complex and detailed information.

Card Layout

Let's look at basic card HTML layout

<div class="card">
    <div class="card-header">Header</div>
    <div class="card-content">
        <!-- Card content -->
    </div>
    <div class="card-footer">Footer</div>
</div>

<div class="card">
    <div class="card-header">Header</div>
    <div class="card-content card-content-padding">
        <!-- Card content -->
    </div>
    <div class="card-footer">Footer</div>
</div>

Where:

  • <div class="card"> - Card container

    • <div class="card-header"> - Card header. Mostly used to display card title. Optional

    • <div class="card-footer"> - Card footer is used for some additional information or for custom actions/links. Optional

    • <div class="card-content"> - Main container for card content. Required

    • <div class="card-content card-content-padding"> - Additional card-content-padding used to add extra padding to card-content

Note, that "card-header" and "card-footer" has flexbox layout (display:flex) where items have center vertical alignment. If you need to align items to top or to bottom of header/footer, then you may use additional typography classes, for exame:

<div class="card-header align-items-flex-start"> - align header items by header top line

<div class="card-footer align-items-flex-end"> - align footer items by footer bottom line

Examples
