Table of Contents


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

To use this app, you need to add it in your dependencies in the manifest.json file.

  dependencies: {
    "vtex.breadcrumb": "1.x"

Then, add the breadcrumb block into our app theme, as we do in our Product Details app.

Blocks API

This app has an interface that describes what rules must be implemented by a block when you want to use the breadcrumb app.

  "breadcrumb": {
    "component": "Breadcrumb"


Through the Storefront, you can change the behavior and interface of the breadcrumb. However, you also can make in your theme app, as Dreamstore does.

📢 Extra information: The product's categories should appear as an array in one of this two formats:

  • 1
categories = ['/Eletronics/', '/Eletronics/Computers']
  • 2
categories = ['eletronics', 'eletronics-computers']

Styles API

This app has CSS customization through CSS Modules. CSS Modules is a CSS file in which all class names and animation names are scoped locally by default. You can read more about CSS Modules here .

We use it css-loader to generate a CSS token on a HTML element. For example, the builder generate a CSS token based on app vendor, name and major version. Like container token declared in breadcrumb, generate the classname vtex.breadcrumb-1-x-container.

Below, we describe the tokens, their explanation and the component where it is located.

CSS Handles

To override the default CSS, you need to import styles on your manifest:

  "builders": {
    "styles": "1.x"

Also, create a vtex.breadcrumb.css file in styles/css for your handlers customization.
