Blurry Off-canvas Menu with jQuery and Canvas - Blurry Menu

Blurry Menu is a jQuery plugin for creating an off-canvas menu that slides out from the edge of your screen while blurring other web content using canvas technology powered by html2canvas and Superfast Blur.

How to use it:

1. Load the needed jQuery and jQuery UI in your document.

<script src="jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

2. Load the other required resources in the document.

<script src="html2canvas.js"></script>
<script src="ext_fastblur.js"></script>

3. Load the jQuery Blurry Menu plugin after jQuery library.

<script src="js/blurry-menu.js"></script>

4. Create an off-canvas menu for your site navigation.

<div id="menu">

    <!-- This image will not be displayed. The data-source from the canvas-screenshot will be set to this image -->
    <img id="captured-image" src="img/">

    <!-- The canvas placeholder where the image after beeing blurred  will be set -->
    <canvas id="blurred-bg-canvas"></canvas>

    <!-- simple demo menu content -->
    <div id="menu-content">
            <li class="first">Menu 1</li>
            <li>Menu 2</li>
            <li>Menu 3</li>

5. Create a hamburger button to toggle the off-canvas menu.

<div id="hamburger" onclick="BlurryMenu.openMenu()">

6. Style the off-canvas menu.

#menu {
  box-shadow: 5px 5px 30px #000000;
  position: absolute;
  width: 0px;
  overflow: hidden;
  top: 0px;
  left: -7px;
  color: #ffffff;

#menu-content { position: relative; }

#blurred-bg-canvas { position: absolute; }

#captured-image { display: none; }
