Navigation covers simple navigation components, then combines them into horizontal and vertical nav groups, built on a common markup pattern. Commonly uses badges within navigation items.
Navigation patterns include horizontal navigation bars, vertical navigation groups, breadcrumbs and pagination.

Should be placed immediately before
Usually placed inside an
.aui-page-panel-nav but will expand horizontally to fit any appropriate container element.
Breadcrumbs are used as a high-level representation of where users have navigated. Users can click the links to go back to previous pages.
This element is primarily used in nav groups or with a modifier class, but can be used by itself.
Pagination is used to split content across multiple pages.
Note: the current page is set to
aui-nav-selected and should not be a link.
Navgroups are placed before nav UL elements and can have headers:
In a horizontal nav group, nav items placed in a primary nav group
aui-nav-primary are placed to the left, and secondary to the right. These divs currently have no effect in vertical nav but can be included for consistency. A common use case for horizontal navigation is to have most items on the left and a small number of items on the right (usually just one).
Use the action list to list actions at the bottom of a message.
Actions should have the appearance of a link, but should use the appropriate HTML element for
the action — for example, use a
<button> when the action is handled
<a> when the action
can take the user to another location in the system.
