Orbitlist is a fancy jQuery navigation plugin which helps you generate a multilevel circular/radial site menu from plain nested html lists.

How to use it:

1. Put the latest version of jQuery library and the jQuery Orbitlist plugin in the webpage.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="orbitlist.js"></script>

2. Create nested html lists for the orbital navigation.

<ul class="orbit">
  <li>Item 1</li>
  <li>Item 2</li>
  <li>Item 3</li>
  <li>Item 4
      <ul>
          <li>Item 4.1</li>
          <li>Item 4.2
              <ul>
                  <li>4.2.1</li>
                  <li>4.2.2</li>
                  <li>4.2.3</li>
                  <li>4.2.4</li>
              </ul>
          </li>
          <li>Item 4.3
              <ul>
                  <li>4.3.1</li>
                  <li>4.3.2</li>
                  <li>4.3.3</li>
              </ul>
          </li>
          <li>Item 4.4</li>
          <li>Item 4.5</li>
      </ul>
  </li>
  <li>Item 5</li>
  <li>Item 6</li>
  <li>Item 7
      <ul>
          <li>Item 7.1</li>
          <li>Item 7.2</li>
      </ul>
  </li>
  <li>Item 8</li>
  <li>Item 9</li>
</ul>

3. The required CSS styles. Add the following CSS snippets into your webpage or existing CSS file.

ul.orbit.orbitlistJS, ul.orbit.orbitlistJS ul {
  list-style-type: none;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  position: relative;
}

ul.orbit.orbitlistJS li {
  position: absolute;
  cursor: pointer;
}

4. Style the orbital navigation whatever you like.

.orbit li {
  width: 60px;
  height: 60px;
  border-radius: 60px;
  border: 2px solid #000;
  background: #fff;
  text-align: center;
  line-height: 60px;
}

ul.orbit.orbitlistJS li { transition: all 0.2s linear; }

ul.orbit.orbitlistJS li:hover { background: #4FC2E5; }

.orbit li.orbitlistJS-trace { background: #1ca; }

.orbit li.orbitlistJS-active { background:#46CFB0; }

5. Default option.

jQuery('ul.orbit').orbitlist({
  onhover: true
});
