Yet another jQuery plugin to create a fully responsive & animated sliding side navigation with sub-navigation using jQuery and CSS3. Useful for creating a mobile app-like vertical navigation menu sliding out from the edge of your page and push the main content area to the left.

How to use it:

1. Create the Html for a main content area with a toggle link to open a sliding menu.

<main class="cd-main-content">
  <header>
    <nav id="cd-top-nav">
      <ul>
        <li><a href="#0">Tour</a></li>
        <li><a href="#0">Login</a></li>
      </ul>
    </nav>
    <a id="cd-menu-trigger" href="#0"><span class="cd-menu-text">Menu</span><span class="cd-menu-icon"></span></a> 
  </header>
</main>

2. Create the Html for a sliding navigation.

<nav id="cd-lateral-nav">
  <ul class="cd-navigation">
    <li class="item-has-children"> <a href="#0">Services</a>
      <ul class="sub-menu">
        <li><a href="#0">Brand</a></li>
        <li><a href="#0">Web Apps</a></li>
        <li><a href="#0">Mobile Apps</a></li>
      </ul>
    </li>
    <!-- item-has-children -->
    
    <li class="item-has-children"> <a href="#0">Products</a>
      <ul class="sub-menu">
        <li><a href="#0">Product 1</a></li>
        <li><a href="#0">Product 2</a></li>
        <li><a href="#0">Product 3</a></li>
        <li><a href="#0">Product 4</a></li>
        <li><a href="#0">Product 5</a></li>
      </ul>
    </li>
    <!-- item-has-children -->
    
    <li class="item-has-children"> <a href="#0">Stockists</a>
      <ul class="sub-menu">
        <li><a href="#0">London</a></li>
        <li><a href="#0">New York</a></li>
        <li><a href="#0">Milan</a></li>
        <li><a href="#0">Paris</a></li>
      </ul>
    </li>
    <!-- item-has-children -->
  </ul>
  <!-- cd-navigation -->
  
  <ul class="cd-navigation cd-single-item-wrapper">
    <li><a href="#0">Tour</a></li>
    <li><a href="#0">Login</a></li>
    <li><a href="#0">Register</a></li>
    <li><a href="#0">Pricing</a></li>
    <li><a href="#0">Support</a></li>
  </ul>
  <!-- cd-single-item-wrapper -->
  
  <ul class="cd-navigation cd-single-item-wrapper">
    <li><a class="current" href="#0">Journal</a></li>
    <li><a href="#0">FAQ</a></li>
    <li><a href="#0">Terms &amp; Conditions</a></li>
    <li><a href="#0">Careers</a></li>
    <li><a href="#0">Students</a></li>
  </ul>
  <!-- cd-single-item-wrapper -->

</nav>

4. Include the latest version of jQuery library at the end of your page.

<script src='http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js'></script>

5. Add the following Javascript snippets after jQuery library.

<script>jQuery(document).ready(function($){
var $lateral_menu_trigger = $('#cd-menu-trigger'),
$content_wrapper = $('.cd-main-content');

// fallback added for IE9 - transition not supported
var is_explorer_9 = navigator.userAgent.indexOf('MSIE 9') > -1;

//open-close lateral menu clicking on the menu icon
$lateral_menu_trigger.on('click', function(event){
event.preventDefault();
$lateral_menu_trigger.toggleClass('is-clicked');
$content_wrapper.toggleClass('lateral-menu-is-open').one('webkitTransitionEnd otransitionend oTransitionEnd msTransitionEnd transitionend', function(){
// firefox transitions break when parent overflow is changed, so we need to wait for the end of the trasition to give the body an overflow hidden
$('body').toggleClass('overflow-hidden');
});
$('#cd-lateral-nav').toggleClass('lateral-menu-is-open');
if(is_explorer_9) {
$('body').toggleClass('overflow-hidden');
}
});

//close lateral menu clicking outside the menu itself
$content_wrapper.on('click', function(event){
if( !$(event.target).is('#cd-menu-trigger, #cd-menu-trigger span') ) {
$lateral_menu_trigger.removeClass('is-clicked');
$content_wrapper.removeClass('lateral-menu-is-open').one('webkitTransitionEnd otransitionend oTransitionEnd msTransitionEnd transitionend', function(){
$('body').removeClass('overflow-hidden');
});
$('#cd-lateral-nav').removeClass('lateral-menu-is-open');
if(is_explorer_9) {
$('body').removeClass('overflow-hidden');
}

}
});

//open (or close) submenu items in the lateral menu. Close all the other open submenu items.
$('.item-has-children').children('a').on('click', function(event){
event.preventDefault();
$(this).toggleClass('submenu-open').next('.sub-menu').slideToggle(200).end().parent('.item-has-children').siblings('.item-has-children').children('a').removeClass('submenu-open').next('.sub-menu').slideUp(200);
});
});
</script>
