Tailwind CSS Breadcrumbs - Flowbite

Show the location of the current page in a hierarchical structure using the Tailwind CSS breadcrumb components

The breadcrumb component is an important part of any website or application that can be used to show the current location of a page in a hierarchical structure of pages.

Flowbite includes two styles of breadcrumb elements, one that has a transparent background and a few more that come with a background in different colors.

Default example

Use the following breadcrumb example to show the hierarchical structure of pages.

<nav class="flex" aria-label="Breadcrumb">
  <ol class="inline-flex items-center space-x-1 md:space-x-3">
    <li class="inline-flex items-center">

With background

You can alternatively also use the breadcrumb components with a solid background.
