Cards

A card is a flexible and extensible content container. It includes options for headers and footers, a wide variety of content, contextual background colors, and powerful display options.

Cards are built with as little markup and styles as possible, but still manage to deliver a ton of control and customization. Built with flexbox, they offer easy alignment and mix well with other components.

<b-card> has no fixed width to start, so they’ll naturally fill the full width of its parent element. This is easily customized via styles or standard Bootstrap V4 sizing clases.

Change the default div root tag to any other HTML element by specifying via the tag prop

<div>
  <b-card title="Card Title"
          img-src="https://picsum.photos/600/300/?image=25"
          img-alt="Image"
          img-top
          tag="article"
          style="max-width: 20rem;"
          class="mb-2">
    <p class="card-text">
      Some quick example text to build on the card title and make up the bulk of the card's content.
    </p>
    <b-button href="#" variant="primary">Go somewhere</b-button>
  </b-card>
</div>

<!-- card-1.vue -->

Content types

Cards support a wide variety of content, including images, text, list groups, links and more. Below are examples of what’s supported.

Card Body

The building block of a card is the .card-body section which provides a padded section within a card. By default the <b-card> content is placed in the .card-body section:

<b-card class="text-center">
  This is some text within the default card block.
</b-card>

<!-- card-body-1.vue -->

Disable the .card-body section (and associated padding) by setting the prop no-body.

<b-card no-body class="text-center">
  This is some text without the default card body section. Notice the lack of padding.
</b-card>

<!-- card-body-2.vue -->

Note that with no-body enabled, title and sub-title will not be rendered.

Use the <b-card-body> sub-componet to place your own .card-body anywhere in a <b-card> component with no-body set.

Card titles are adding via the title prop, and sub titles are added via the sub-title prop. Links can be added and placed next to each other by adding the .card-link class to a tag (or <b-link>).

With class .card-text, text can be added to the card. Text within .card-text can also be styled with the standard HTML tags.

<div>
    <b-card title="Card title"
            sub-title="Card subtitle">
        <p class="card-text">
            Some quick example text to build on the <em>card title</em> and make up the bulk of the card's content.
        </p>
        <a href="#"
           class="card-link">Card link</a>
        <b-link href="#"
                class="card-link">Another link</b-link>
    </b-card>
</div>

<!-- card-text-1.vue -->

Images

The prop img-src places an image on the top of the card, and use the img-alt prop to specify a string to be placed in the image's alt attribute. The image specified by the img-src prop will be responsive and will adjust it's width when the width of the card is changed.

<div>
    <b-card-group deck>
        <b-card img-src="https://placekitten.com/1000/300"
                img-alt="Card image"
                img-top>
            <p class="card-text">
                Some quick example text to build on the card and make up the bulk of the card's content.
            </p>
        </b-card>
        <b-card img-src="https://placekitten.com/1000/300"
                img-alt="Card image"
                img-bottom>
            <p class="card-text">
                Some quick example text to build on the card and make up the bulk of the card's content.
            </p>
        </b-card>
    </b-card-group>
</div>

<!-- card-img-1.vue -->

Place the image in the background of the card by setting the boolean prop overlay:

<div>
  <b-card overlay
          img-src="https://picsum.photos/900/250/?image=36"
          img-alt="Card Image"
          text-variant="white"
          title="Image Overlay"
          sub-title="Subtitle">
    <p class="card-text">
      Some quick example text to build on the card and make
      up the bulk of the card's content.
    </p>
  </b-card>
</div>

<!-- card-img-2.vue -->

Add an optional header and/or footer within a card via the header/footer props or named slots. You can control the wrapper element tags used by setting the header-tag and footer-tag props (both default is div)

<div>
    <b-card-group deck>
        <b-card header="featured"
                header-tag="header"
                footer="Card Footer"
                footer-tag="footer"
                title="Title">
            <p class="card-text">Header and footers using props.</p>
            <b-button href="#"
                      variant="primary">Go somewhere</b-button>
        </b-card>
        <b-card title="Title"
                header-tag="header"
                footer-tag="footer">
            <h6 slot="header"
                class="mb-0">Header Slot</h6>
            <em slot="footer">Footer Slot</em>
            <p class="card-text">Header and footers using slots.</p>
            <b-button href="#"
                      variant="primary">Go somewhere</b-button>
        </b-card>
    </b-card-group>
</div>

<!-- card-header-footer-1.vue -->

Kitchen sink Example

Mix and match multiple content types to create the card you need, or throw everything in there. Shown below are image styles, blocks, text styles, and a list group—all wrapped in a fixed-width card.

<div>
    <b-card no-body
            style="max-width: 20rem;"
            img-src="https://placekitten.com/380/200"
            img-alt="Image"
            img-top>
        <h4 slot="header">Hello World</h4>
        <b-card-body>
            <p class="card-text">
                Some quick example text to build on the card title and make up the bulk of the card's content.
            </p>
        </b-card-body>
        <b-list-group flush>
            <b-list-group-item>Cras justo odio</b-list-group-item>
            <b-list-group-item>Dapibus ac facilisis in</b-list-group-item>
            <b-list-group-item>Vestibulum at eros</b-list-group-item>
        </b-list-group>
        <b-card-body>
            <a href="#"
               class="card-link">Card link</a>
            <a href="#"
               class="card-link">Another link</a>
        </b-card-body>
        <b-card-footer>This is a footer</b-card-footer>
        <b-card-img src="https://placekitten.com/480/210"
                    alt="Image"
                    bottom></b-card-img>
    </b-card>
</div>

<!-- card-kitchen-1.vue -->

Text variants

By default, cards use dark text and assume a light background. You can reverse that by toggling the color of text within, as well as that of the card’s sub-components, via the prop text-variant. Then, specify a dark background variant.

<b-card  bg-variant="dark" text-variant="white" title="Card Title">
  <p class="card-text">
    With supporting text below as a natural lead-in to additional content.
  </p>
  <b-button href="#" variant="primary">Go somewhere</b-button>
</b-card>

<!-- card-text-1.vue -->

Background and Border variants

Cards include their own variant style for quickly changing the background-color and of a card via the bg-variant and border-variant props. Darker solid variants my require setting the prop text-variant to adjust the text color.

Variant to class mapping

BootstrapVue <b-card> variants are directly mapped to Bootstrap V4 card classes by pre-pending bg- (for solid) or border- (for bordered) to the above variant names.

You can also apply the solid and border variants individually to card headers and footers via the header-bg-variant, header-border-variant, header-text-variant, footer-bg-variant, footer-border-variant, and footer-text-variant props.

<div>
  <b-card header="Card Header"
          header-text-variant="white"
          header-tag="header"
          header-bg-variant="dark"
          footer="Card Footer"
          footer-tag="footer"
          footer-bg-variant="success"
          footer-border-variant="dark"
          title="Title"
          style="max-width: 20rem;"
  >
    <p class="card-text">Header and footers variants.</p>
  </b-card>
</div>

<!-- card-header-footer-variant.vue -->

Conveying meaning to assistive technologies

Using color to add meaning only provides a visual indication, which will not be conveyed to users of assistive technologies – such as screen readers. Ensure that information denoted by the color is either obvious from the content itself (e.g. the visible text), or is included through alternative means, such as additional text hidden with the .sr-only class.

Card Groups

In addition to styling the content within cards, BootstrapVue includes a <b-card-group> component for laying out series of cards. For the time being, these layout options are not yet responsive.

Default card group

Use card groups to render cards as a single, attached element with equal width and height columns. Card groups use display: flex; to achieve their uniform sizing.

When using card groups with footers, their content will automatically line up.

<div>
    <b-card-group>
        <b-card title="Title"
                img-src="https://placekitten.com/g/300/450"
                img-alt="Img"
                img-top>
            <p class="card-text">
                This is a wider card with supporting text below as a natural lead-in to additional content. This content is a little bit
                longer.
            </p>
            <div slot="footer">
                <small class="text-muted">Last updated 3 mins ago</small>
            </div>
        </b-card>
        <b-card title="Title"
                img-src="https://placekitten.com/g/300/450"
                img-alt="Img"
                img-top>
            <p class="card-text">
                This card has supporting text below as a natural lead-in to additional content.
            </p>
            <div slot="footer">
                <small class="text-muted">Last updated 3 mins ago</small>
            </div>
        </b-card>
        <b-card title="Title"

                img-alt="Img"
                img-top>
            <p class="card-text">
                This is a wider card with supporting text below as a natural lead-in to additional content. This card has even longer content
                than the first to show that equal height action.

<!-- card-group-1.vue -->

Card deck groups

Need a set of equal width and height cards that aren’t attached to one another? Use card decks by setting the deck prop. And just like with regular card groups, card footers in decks will automatically line up.

<div>
    <b-card-group deck>
        <b-card title="Title"
                img-src="https://picsum.photos/300/300/?image=41"

                img-top>
            <p class="card-text">
                This is a wider card with supporting text below as a
                natural lead-in to additional content. This content
                is a little bit longer.
            </p>
            <div slot="footer">

Card column groups

Cards can be organized into Masonry-like columns with by wrapping them in a <b-card-group> with the prop columns set. Cards are built with CSS column properties instead of flexbox for easier alignment. Cards are ordered from top to bottom and left to right.

Heads up! Your mileage with card columns may vary. To prevent cards breaking across columns, we must set them to display: inline-block as column-break-inside: avoid isn’t a bulletproof solution yet.

<div>
    <b-card-group columns>
        <b-card title="Card title that wraps to a new line"
                img-src="https://placekitten.com/g/400/450"
