Basic Responsive Dropdown Menu Plugin - jQuery mainMenu.js

mainMenu.js is a lightweight, fully responsive, multi-level jQuery dropdown navigation plugin that automatically collapses into a hamburger toggle menu on small screen devices.

How to use it:

1. Code the dropdown navigation as this:

<nav class="menu">
  <div class="menu-header"><span class="fa">&#xf0c9;</span>Menu</div>
  <ul class="main-menu">
    <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
    <li class="subMenu" data-trigger = "submenu"><a href="#">Category 1</a>
        <li data-trigger="submenu"><a href="#">Category 1.1</a></li>
        <li data-trigger="submenu"><a href="#">Category 1.2</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
    <li class="subMenu" data-trigger = "submenu"><a href="">Category 2</a>
        <li data-trigger = "submenu"><a href="#">Category 2.1</a></li>
        <li data-trigger = "submenu"><a href="#">Category 2.2</a></li>

2. Include jQuery library together with the 'jquery.mainMenu.css' and 'jquery.mainMenu.js' on the webpage.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/jquery.mainMenu.css">
<script src="//"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.mainMenu.js"></script>

3. Initialize the plugin to generate a default responsive dropdown navigation.


4. Customize the dropdown navigation with the following options.

  "backgroundColor": "#4b5f9b",
  "highlightColor":  "aqua",
  "submenuColor":    "#5c688a",
  "toggleSpeed":     "1000",
  "fontColor":       "white",
  "menuNumber":       "5"
