ChipLists present collections of chips that allow users to manage and visually represent multiple items or selections.

ChipList Overview

The ChipList component is a user interface element used to display and manage a collection of chips. It provides a visually appealing way to represent and interact with multiple items or selections. Each chip typically represents a specific item, tag, or choice, and can display relevant information or actions associated with it. Users are able to add or remove chips dynamically, making it useful for scenarios where multiple selection or categorization is required, such as filtering options, tags, or selected items in a shopping cart.

ChipLists enhance the user experience by providing an intuitive and interactive way to manage and visualize multiple items in a compact and organized manner.
