Table of Contents


This app uses our store builder with the blocks architecture. To know more about Store Builder click here..

We add the header as a block in our Store.

To configure or customize this app, you need to import it in your dependencies in manifest.json.

  dependencies: {
    "": "2.x"

Then, add header block into your app theme as we do in our Store theme app.

Now, select the desired blocks, for example:

"header.full": {
  "blocks": [

Blocks API

When implementing apps as a block various inner blocks may be available. The following interface lists the available blocks within header and describes if they are required or optional.

"header": {
  "allowed": [
  "required": [
  "component": "index"

"header.full": {
  "allowed": [
  "required": [
  "component": "index"

It's essential to remark that, the header has the default and full versions defined as blocks by header and header.full respectively.

The header.full has telemarketing, logo, minicart, login, category-menu and search-bar as required inner-blocks, meanwhile header only requires telemarketing and logo. The menu-link and theme blocks are optional in both versions.

Note that every header implementation must append all required blocks within its version. Similarly, each inner block has its own configurable structure. There is a link to its API in the next section.


Through the Storefront, you can change the headers's behavior and interface. However, you also can make in your theme app, as Store theme does.

Prop name Type Description Default value
leanWhen String Cases in which the menu is in lean mode 'a^'
linkUrl String Address opened when the user clicks the logo '/'
logoUrl String URL of the logo image N/A
logoTitle String Alt text for the logo N/A
logoSize Object Sizes of logo in desktop and mobile desktop: { width: 132, height: 40 }, mobile: { width: 90, height: 40 }
showSearchBar Boolean Sets whether the search bar is visible or not true
showLogin Boolean Sets whether the login button is displayed or not true
iconClasses String Classes for icons 'c-on-base'
labelClasses String Classes for labels 'c-on-base'
collapsibleAnimation Object Collapsible animation controlling Collapsible Animation
Collapsible Animation

The Collapsible content can display animations on page scroll up or down, that can be configured through collapsibleAnimation, which is an object with the properties:

Prop name Type Description Default value
onScroll Boolean If should animate on scroll true
always Boolean If should animate on every scroll up or down true
anchor Number Scroll value that animation starts to be active 100
from Number Initial height before animation 64
to Number Target height after animation 0
preset String Animation configuration preset: more @ react-spring 'default'
config Object Animation configuration: more @ react-spring {}

Also, you can configure the blocks telemarketing, logo, login, category-menu, search-bar and menu-link defined on header.

Styles API

This app provides some CSS classes as an API for style customization.

To use this CSS API, you must add the styles builder and create an app styling CSS file.

  1. Add the styles builder to your manifest.json:
  "builders": {
    "styles": "1.x"
  1. Create a file called vtex.header.css inside the styles/css folder. Add your custom styles:
.container {
  margin-top: 10px;

CSS namespaces

Below, we describe the namespaces that are defined in the header.

Class name Description Component Source
container The main container of header index
leanMode The main container of header on lean mode index
topMenuContainer The container of fixed top menu FixedContent
topMenuLogo The container of logo in fixed top menu Logo
topMenuSearchBar The container of search bar in fixed top menu SearchBar
topMenuIcons The container of icons on fixed top menu Icons
