Add .bc-list to an <ul> or <ol> element.

Ensure you’re using the correct semantic list to group list items:

  • Choose a semantically appropriate list based on the nature of your content
    • <ul> for unordered lists
    • <ol> for ordered lists
  • Do not use lists for layout purposes

The following variants are available:

.bc-list--numberedUsed for a list when an inherent order, priority, or sequence needs to be communicated. Use an <ol> when using this variant.
.bc-list--bulletedUsed for a list that don’t need to be in a specific order
.bc-list--linedUsed for a list with a bottom bordered separator
.bc-list--inlineUsed for list to display horizontally
.bc-list--middotUsed for horizontal list only, with a dot as a separator between items
.bc-list--compactUsed for list when there is limited space for a list, this will reduce the space between items
.bc-list--spaciousUsed for list for allowing more space between items

Best practices

  • The --numbered and --bulleted variants are mutually exclusive
  • The spacing variants (--compact & --spacious) are mutually exclusive and can be chained with all other variants
  • The --middot variant extends the --inline variant’s styles, omitting the need to chain these two classes together
  • The --lined variant should not be used with the --inline or --middot variants
