We define a Vue.js component whose name is semantic-ui-basic-tab, and we pass data of tabs and panes to it.


'use strict';

Vue.component("semantic-ui-basic-tab", {
    template: `
  <!-- Nav tabs -->
  <div class="ui top attached tabular menu">
    <a class="item"
       v-for="(tabpane, index) in tabpanes"
       v-bind:class="{ 'active': tabsel == index }"
       @click="tabsel = index">
  <!-- Tab panes -->
  <div class="ui bottom attached tab segment"
       v-for="(tabpane, index) in tabpanes"
       v-bind:class="{ 'active': tabsel == index }">
    props: ["tabpanes"],
    data: function() {
      return {
        tabsel: 0

var app = new Vue({
  el: '#vueapp',
  data: {
    mytabpanes: [
      {nav: "tab1", pane:"tab1 content"},
      {nav: "tab2", pane:"tab2 content"},
      {nav: "tab3", pane:"tab3 content"},
      {nav: "tab4", pane:"tab4 content"},

The data passed to the component is an array consisting of nav and content of the tabs. we use v-for to create the actual HTML of the tabs in the component.

We use the variable tabsel to indicate current selected tab. When users click on the tab, update tabsel according to the tab index and hence show the selected tab pane according to the value of tabsel.

The active class of tabs will also be updated according to tabsel. Set tabsel to 0 in the initialization phase to make first tab as default tab.

If you do not want to use Vue.js or any JavaScript code, see [2] for pure CSS Semantic UI Basic tabs.
