The Accordion component consists of a parent container with the uk-accordion attribute, and a title and content part for each accordion item.

.uk-accordion-titleDefines and styles the toggle for each accordion item. Use <a> elements.
.uk-accordion-contentDefines the content part for each accordion item.
<ul uk-accordion>
        <a class="uk-accordion-title" href="#"></a>
        <div class="uk-accordion-content"></div>

No collapsing

By default, all accordion items can be collapsed. To prevent this behavior and always maintain one open item, add the collapsible: false option to the attribute.

<ul uk-accordion="collapsible: false"></ul>

Multiple open items

To display multiple content sections at the same time without one collapsing when the other one is opened, add the multiple: true option to the uk-accordion attribute.

<ul uk-accordion="multiple: true"></ul>

Set open items

To specify which items should be opened initially, add the .uk-open class to the item. You can also use this to open multiple items. Just make sure to add the option multiple: true to the uk-accordion attribute.

Note Alternatively, you can open a single item by adding the active: <index> option to the uk-accordion attribute, e.g. active: 1 to show the second element (the index is zero-based). Note that this will overwrite the uk-open class.

<ul uk-accordion>
    <li class="uk-open"></li>
