In this article written by MARY LOU we're going to create a stylish sidebar menu with smooth sliding effects, similar to the google Nexus 7 website. The idea is to reveal the slidebar icons when hovering over the menu icon. When hovering over the sidebar icon or directly clicking on the menu icon, the whole sidebar menu will be shown.

How to use it:

1. Create the html for the sidebar menu

<ul id="gn-menu" class="gn-menu-main">
<li class="gn-trigger"> <a class="gn-icon gn-icon-menu"><span>Menu</span></a>
<nav class="gn-menu-wrapper">
<div class="gn-scroller">
<ul class="gn-menu">
<li class="gn-search-item">
<input placeholder="Search" type="search" class="gn-search">
<a class="gn-icon gn-icon-search"><span>Search</span></a> </li>
<li> <a class="gn-icon gn-icon-download">Downloads</a>
<ul class="gn-submenu">
<li><a class="gn-icon gn-icon-illustrator">Vector Illustrations</a></li>
<li><a class="gn-icon gn-icon-photoshop">Photoshop files</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a class="gn-icon gn-icon-cog">Settings</a></li>
<li><a class="gn-icon gn-icon-help">Help</a></li>
<li> <a class="gn-icon gn-icon-archive">Archives</a>
<ul class="gn-submenu">
<li><a class="gn-icon gn-icon-article">Articles</a></li>
<li><a class="gn-icon gn-icon-pictures">Images</a></li>
<li><a class="gn-icon gn-icon-videos">Videos</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
</div>
<!-- /gn-scroller --> 
</nav>
</li>
</ul>
