Easily highlight new or unread items by adding a <span class="badge"> to links, Bootstrap navs, and more.

<a href="#">Inbox <span class="badge">42</span></a>

Self collapsing

When there are no new or unread items, badges will simply collapse (via CSS's :empty selector) provided no content exists within.

Cross-browser compatibility

Badges won't self collapse in Internet Explorer 8 because it lacks support for the :empty selector.

Adapts to active nav states

Built-in styles are included for placing badges in active states in pill navigations.

<ul class="nav nav-pills nav-stacked">
  <li class="active">
    <a href="#">
      <span class="badge pull-right">42</span>
