Day 15: Breadcrumb 🍞


A breadcrumb is an element that helps users understand the hierarchy of the page and site.

The example component is visible below.



A few notes about this breadcrumb component:

  • CSS Variables are used for colors and spacing,
  • the all: unset declaration is used to remove default list styles,
  • CSS Flexbox is used for layout,
  • the gap property is used to add spacing between flex items,
  • the :before pseudo-element is used to add delimiters,
  • text-decoration-color, text-decoration-style, and text-decoration-thickness properties are used to style the link hover state,
  • the :first-letter selector is used to make the emojis bigger.

<nav class="advent-breadcrumbs">
<ol>
