asidebar is a super tiny jQuery plugin used to create an off-canvas sidebar navigation / menu / panel for your web application. Also provided as a React component which can be used in your modern React.js applications. The plugin uses CSS3 transitions for smooth animations when the sidebar opens / closes.

How to use it:

1. Create the off-canvas sidebar navigation with a close button.

<div class="aside">
  <div class="aside-header">
    Sidebar Navigation
    <span class="close" data-dismiss="aside" aria-hidden="true">&times;</span>
  </div>
  <div class="aside-contents">
    <p>Sidebar Content</p>
  </div>
</div>

2. Create a 'aside-backdrop' element for the fullscreen background overlay when the sidebar navigation is opened.

<div class="aside-backdrop"></div>

3. Create a trigger element to toggle the sidebar navigation.

<a href="#" onclick="$('.aside').asidebar('open')">Toggle</a>

4. Style the sidebar navigation whatever you like.

.aside {
  min-width: 350px;
  width: 15%;
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  background-color: #fafafa;
  border-right: 1px solid #333;
  box-shadow: 0 5px 15px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5);
  z-index: 2000;
  width: 0px;
  min-width: 0px;
  overflow: hidden;
  transition: 0.35s width ease, 0.35s min-width ease;
}

.aside .aside-header {
  background-color: red;
  padding: 1em;
  padding-left: 0.5em;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #c20000;
  font-size: 1.2em;
  color: black;
}

.aside .aside-header .close {
  float: right;
  cursor: pointer;
}

.aside .aside-contents {
  padding: 0.5em;
  padding-bottom: 1em;
}

.aside.in {
  width: 15%;
  min-width: 350px;
}

.aside-backdrop {
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  right: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  left: 0;
  z-index: 1040;
  background-color: #000;
  transition: 0.2s opacity ease;
  opacity: 0;
  display: none;
}

.aside-backdrop.in {
  display: block;
  opacity: 0.5;
}

5. Place jQuery library and the core JavaScript file asidebar.jquery.js at the end of the document. That's it.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-3.0.0.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery/asidebar.jquery.js"></script>
