When to Use

  • Content Diversity: Use this component when your website hosts a variety of content types, such as articles, news, or products, categorized into distinct groups (e.g., Academics, Research, Students).

  • Archived Content: Implement it when you have an extensive archive of content spanning multiple years, making it easier for users to access historical information.

  • Enhanced Usability: Use it to improve the usability of your website, ensuring that visitors can quickly find the most relevant information based on their interests.

When to Consider Something Else

  • Limited Content: If your website has minimal content or doesn't require extensive categorization and filtering, a simpler navigation structure might be more suitable.

  • Mobile-First Design: In cases where you are prioritizing mobile users, consider alternative methods of content organization that work well on smaller screens.

Accessibility Tips

  • Ensure that the filter component is keyboard-navigable, and all interactive elements are accessible using keyboard commands.

  • Use ARIA roles and attributes to provide context and descriptions for screen readers.

  • Maintain proper color contrast for text and background elements to accommodate users with visual impairments.

  • Test the component with assistive technologies to ensure it functions as expected.
