Side Navigation

The side navigation menu is a list of links that is used for a website navigation. The side navigation can provide a multi-level structure.

<Example title="Side navigation basic usage" path="side-navigation/basic.js"

<Example title="Side navigation with overrides" path="side-navigation/nav-overrides.js"

React Router

By default, the Navigation component uses <a href> and reloads the page. When you use JavaScript based routing (for example react-router), you need to prevent the default action via e.preventDefault() first.

import {withRouter} from 'react-router';

const App = ({history, location}) => {
  return (
          title: 'Home',
          itemId: '/home',
      onChange={({event, item}) => {
        // prevent page reload

export default withRouter(App);


If you are experiencing performance issues from rendering hundreds of items, consider adding a comparator function through the itemMemoizationComparator prop. This function is provided to a React.memo call on the NavItem component. See React's documentation for more information on how this works. Take care to ensure that you diff all of the props you care about. While powerful, intervening in React's default update schedule can lead to unexpected results.


<Overrides name="Side Navigation" component={NavExports} renderExample={props => ( <Navigation items={[ { title: 'Colors', itemId: '#level1.1', subnav: [ { title: 'Primary', itemId: '#level1.1.1', }, { title: 'Shades', itemId: '#level1.1.2', }, ], }, { title: 'Sizing', itemId: '#level1.2', }, ]} activeItemId="#level1.1" overrides={props.overrides} {...props} /> )} />

<API heading="Side Navigation API" api={require('!!@uber-web-ui/extract-react-types-loader!../../../src/side-navigation/nav.js')} />

You can’t perform that action at this time.
