Easy Mobile-Friendly jQuery Responsive Menu Plugin - Reaktion.js

Just another jQuery responsive menu plugin that turns the regular navigation menu into a mobile-friendly toggle menu when the screen size reaches a predefined breakpoint.

How to use it:

1. Include jQuery library and the jQuery Reaktion.js plugin's CSS & script in your web page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.0.3/css/font-awesome.min.css" >

2. Include Font Awesome icon font for navigation icons.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.2.0/css/font-awesome.min.css">

3. Create a regular navigation menu from a nested Html list.

<div class="nav">
    <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Work</a>
        <li><a href="#">Recent Work</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Case Studies</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Archives</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Services</a>
        <li><a href="#">Web Design</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Web Development</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">eCommerce</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Graphic Design</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Blog</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>

4. Call the plugin on the parent element and done. With default options, the navigation menu will be turned into a toggle menu once the screen size is smaller that 768px.


5. Full options to customize the responsive menu.

/* $('.nav').reaktion({

// custom breakpoint
breakPoint: 768,

// the icon for the toggle button
navIcon: '<i class="fa fa-bars"></i>',

// shows the sub menu arrows
arrows: true,

// the icon for the sub menu arrows
arrowIcon: '<i class="fa fa-chevron-down"></i>',

// the arrows are the only element that will toggle the sub menus
arrowsToggleOnly: true,

// animate the mobile menu on reveal
animate: true,

// slide or fade
effect: 'slide',

// animation speed
speed: 300,

// animate when opening the sub menus
animateSubNav: true,

// slide or fade
subNavEffect: 'slide',

// animation speed
subNavSpeed: 300,

// executed whenever the menu is opened
onOpen: function(){},

// executed whenever the menu is closed
onClose: function(){}
