This header is for tools and services built by the Financial Times.
o-header-services header is divided into three main parts: title section (required), primary navigation (optional), and secondary navigation (optional). Each section is placed within a
<header class='o-header-services' data-o-component='o-header-services'> <!-- Markup specific to the needs of your product. Options detailed below. --> </header>
A title section is required for every header, and every title section must include a logo and a product title.
The logo will default to the FT logo—if you are not using the build service you can customise it with the
oHeaderServices() Sass mixin.
You can choose to include a product tagline to describe your product concisely, and there is space for extra content such as a 'Sign In' link in this section of the header, too.
Note: If there is a 'Sign in' option, it should be consistent with other FT products by aligning itself to the right and avoiding different wording such as 'Log in' or 'Login'.
For an example and markup, see the title-only header in the Origami Registry.
The primary navigation is an optional addition to the title section. It's most useful for high-level navigation.
This section of the header has specific behaviour, as it turns into a drawer at smaller viewport sizes (740px down). It requires the addition an extra element in the title section to support the hamburger button.
If you are using extra content (such as a 'Sign in' link), that will be pulled into the drawer, as well.
For an example and markup, see the primary navigation in the Origami Registry.
The primary navigation can also handle dropdown menus. These menus are hidden behind a button that lives beside the navigation item that it is pertinent to.
Drop down menus also get pulled into the drawer on smaller viewports.
For an example and markup, see the primary navigation with drop downs in the Origami Registry.
The secondary navigation is also an optional addition to the header, but it makes more sense alongside the primary navigation, as it serves more complicated products.
It includes two sections of navigation: 'ancestors' and 'children'.
The 'ancestor' section works in the form of a breadcrumb, and the children are relative to the ancestor.
At smaller viewports, it does not collapse into the drawer, but becomes scrollable instead.
For an example and markup, see the secondary navigation in the Origami Registry.
o-header-services offers theming for B2B or B2C products for FT.com products who use the master brand. They are designed to affect the title section and the primary navigation.
To add a theme to the header, add the appropriate class to the header element. For example, for B2B that would be:
+<header class='o-header-services o-header-services--b2b' data-o-component='o-header'> -<header class='o-header-services' data-o-component='o-header'> <!-- Your header markup --> </header>
For an example and markup, see the B2B and B2C headers in the Origami Registry.
If your application requires a bleed header, you'll need to add the
o-header-services--bleed variant to your header.
+<header class='o-header-services o-header-services--bleed' data-o-component='o-header'> -<header class='o-header-services' data-o-component='o-header'> <!-- Your header markup --> </header>
In order to output every type of
o-header-services style, you'll need to include the following:
@import 'o-header-services/main'; @include oHeaderServices();
You can be more selective about which types you would like to output, by using an
$opts map. It accepts the following options:
To use a logo that is not the FT logo, the logo can be modified in one of two ways:
@import 'o-header-services/main'; @include oHeaderServices($opts: 'types': ('primary-nav', 'bleed'); 'logo': 'origami' ); // Will output styles for a bleed header with a primary navigation and the Origami logo
o-header-services provides the option to customise the
whitelabel brand. If you are using this brand, you can modify brand-specific variables by overriding them in a map in
$o-brand: whitelabel; @import 'o-header-services/main'; @include oHeaderServicesCustomize(( 'nav-hover-background': hotpink // will apply to background colors on hover, where appropriate )) @include oHeaderServices($opts: ( 'types': ('primary-nav'), 'features': ('drop-dowm') ));
You can see all of the variables that are available for customising under
whitelabel in the brand SCSS file.
No code will run automatically unless you are using the Build Service. You must either construct an
o-header-services object or fire an
o.DOMContentLoaded event, which
o-header-services listens for.
o-header-services does not construct it for you.
const oHeaderServices = require('o-header-services'); oHeaderServices.init();
