Yet another jQuery based responsive off-canvas navigation that supports multi-level menus and CSS3 powered sliding animations.

How to use it:

1. Create a button to toggle the off-canvas navigation.

<button class="button-nav-toggle"><span class="icon">&#9776;</span> Menu</button>

2. Create a multi-level navigation menu using nested Html lists.

<div class="menu">
  <nav class="nav-main">
    <div class="nav-container">
      <ul>
        <li><a href="">About Us</a></li>
        <li><a href="">Services</a></li>
        <li> <a href="#">Careers</a>
          <ul>
            <li><a href="#" class="back">Main Menu</a></li>
            <li class="nav-label"><strong>JOBS IN AMERICA</strong></li>
            <li><a href="">Accountant</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Budget Analyst</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Carpenter</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Desktop Publisher</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Electrical Engineer</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Financial Analyst</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Human Resources Specialists</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Loan Officer</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Reporter</a></li>
            <li class="nav-label"><strong>JOBS IN GERMANY</strong></li>
            <li><a href="">Budget Analyst</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Carpenter</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Electrical Engineer</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Financial Analyst</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Human Resources Specialists</a></li>
            <li><a href="">Loan Officer</a></li>
          </ul>
        </li>
        <li><a href="">Downloads</a></li>
        <li><a href="">Contact</a></li>
      </ul>
    </div>
  </nav>
</div>

});

$(".nav-main li:has(ul)").addClass("has-sub-nav").prepend("<div class=\"sub-toggle\"></div>");

  $(this).parent().addClass("active");
  $(".nav-container").addClass("show-sub");
