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

We add the menu as a block in our Store Header.

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

  dependencies: {
    "vtex.menu": "2.x"

Then, add vtex.menu@2.x:menu block into your app theme as we do in our Store theme app. Since the menu block is composed by a list of menu-item you should also add them to the app theme.

Now, you can change the behavior of the menu block that is in the store. See an example of how to configure:

"vtex.menu@2.x:menu#websites": {
  "children": [
"menu-item#shop": {
  "props": {
    "id": "menu-item-shop",
    "type": "custom",
    "highlight": false,
    "itemProps": {
      "type": "internal",
      "href": "#",
      "noFollow": false,
      "tagTitle": "Shop",
      "text": "Shop"
    "iconProps": {
      "id": "bnd-logo",
      "size": 16,
      "viewBox": "0 0 16 16",
      "activeClassName": "rebel-pink",
      "mutedClassName": "c-action-primary"
    "iconToTheRight": true

Blocks API

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

"menu-link": {
	"component": "index"

The menu has no required or allowed block. So, any menu block implementation do not need any block inside of menu.


Through the Storefront, you can change the menu's behavior and interface. However, you also can make in your theme app, as Store theme does. The menu have menu-item as children. The props of the menu-item are as it follows:


Prop nameTypeDescriptionDefault value

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.menu.css inside the styles/css folder. Add your custom styles:
.container {
  margin-top: 10px;
