A sliding dropdown navigation box built on top of jQuery, CSS / CSS3 and Font Awesome 4, inspired by Window 10 start menu.

How to use it:

1. Include the Font Awesome 4 for navigation icons.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/font-awesome.min.css">

2. Create the navigation box as follow:

<div id="navigation-bar" class="navigation-bar">
  <div class="bar">
    <button id="navbox-trigger" class="navbox-trigger">
      <i class="fa fa-lg fa-th"></i>
    </button>
  </div>
  <div class="navbox">
    <div class="navbox-tiles">
      <a href="#" class="tile">
        <div class="icon"><i class="fa fa-home"></i></div>
        <span class="title">Home</span>
      </a>
      <a href="#" class="tile">
        <div class="icon"><i class="fa fa-calendar"></i></div>
        <span class="title">Calendar</span>
      </a>
      <a href="#" class="tile">
        <div class="icon"><i class="fa fa-envelope-o"></i></div>
        <span class="title">Email</span>
      </a>
      <a href="#" class="tile">
        <div class="icon"><i class="fa fa-file-image-o"></i></div>
        <span class="title">Photos</span>
      </a>
      <a href="#" class="tile">
        <div class="icon"><i class="fa fa-cloud"></i></div>
        <span class="title">Weather</span>
      </a>
      <a href="#" class="tile">
        <div class="icon"><i class="fa fa-file-movie-o"></i></div>
        <span class="title">Movies</span>
      </a>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

5. Include the needed jQuery library at the end of the document.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.4.min.js"></script> 

6. The required JavaScript to toggle CSS classes when the navigation box is opened or closed.

(function () {
  $(document).ready(function () {
    $('#navbox-trigger').click(function () {
      return $('#navigation-bar').toggleClass('navbox-open');
    });
    return $(document).on('click', function (e) {
      var $target;
      $target = $(e.target);
      if (!$target.closest('.navbox').length && !$target.closest('#navbox-trigger').length) {
        return $('#navigation-bar').removeClass('navbox-open');
      }
    });
  });
}.call(this));
