Lightweight Responsive Sliding Menu Plugin with jQuery - F1-Nav

F1-Nav is a lightweight jQuery plugin that creates a responsive slide up/down navigation menu with a full page overlay. Click the toggle button or anywhere on the overlay to close the menu.

How to use it:

1. Create a link to toggle the navigation menu.

<a id="nav-toggle" class="mm_open"><span></span></a>

2. Make the toggle link it act like a hamburger button.

#nav-toggle {
  width: 30px;
  height: 40px;
  display: block;
  background: none;
  position: absolute;
  top: 2px;
  right: 0px;
  transition: all 0.3s ease

#nav-toggle span,
#nav-toggle span:before,
#nav-toggle span:after {
  cursor: pointer;
  border-radius: 1px;
  height: 3px;
  width: 30px;
  background: #ababab;
  position: absolute;
  top: 21px;
  right: 0px;
  display: block;
  content: ''

#nav-toggle span:before { top: -8px }

#nav-toggle span:after {
  bottom: -8px;
  top: 8px

#nav-toggle span,
#nav-toggle span:before,
#nav-toggle span:after { transition: all 500ms ease-in-out } span { background-color: transparent } span:before, span:after { top: 0 } span:before {
  transform: rotate(45deg);
  -webkit-transform: rotate(45deg)
} span:after {
  transform: rotate(-45deg);
  -webkit-transform: rotate(-45deg)

#nav-toggle:hover { opacity: 0.5 }

3. Create an Html list based panel for the navigation menu.

<div class="panel">
    <li class="nav-item"><a href="#">Link 1</a></li>
    <li class="nav-item"><a href="#">Link 2</a></li>
    <li class="nav-item"><a href="#">Link 3</a></li>
    <li class="nav-item"><a href="#">Link 4</a></li>
    <li class="nav-item"><a href="#">Link 5</a></li>

4. Style the navigation panel.

.panel {
  position: absolute;
  width: 100%;
  border: 0px;
  padding: 0;
  background: #e5e5e5;
  color: white;
  top: 80px;
  display: none;
  z-index: 9999;
  overflow: scroll;
  margin-bottom: 0;
  padding-bottom: 0;
  -ms-overflow-style: none

5. Style the fullscreen overlay.

.mask {
  background: rgba(0,0,0,0.62);
  height: 100%;
  width: 100%;
  z-index: 9998;
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  opacity: 0

6. Place jQuery library and the jQuery F1-Nav.js script at the bottom of the web page and done.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="f1-nav.js"></script>

7. Possible plugin options.

// These are the defaults.
subMenus: false,
mask: true,
itemClickClose: true,
panelPosition:  'absolute',
subMenuParentLink:  false
