    <button type="button" role="tab" tabindex="-1">Tab three</button>
  <div role="tabpanel">
    Panel 1
  <div role="tabpanel" hidden>
    Panel 2
  <div role="tabpanel" hidden>
    Panel 3

Installation possible per NPM:

npm install @github/tab-container-element

… or import it directly off of Skypack
