Slinky is a fully responsive jQuery plugin used to create a mobile App style sliding navigation menu that has nested ul based multi-level functionality. The next level can cover the previous one with a smooth sliding effect to save space on your web page.

Installation:

# Yarn
$ yarn add jquery-slinky

# NPM
$ npm install jquery-slinky --save

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery sliding menu plugin and other resources in your Html file.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/jquery-sliding-menu.css">
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-sliding-menu.js"></script>

2. Create an empty container element for the sliding navigation menu.

<div id="menu"> </div>

3. Create menu items using nested Html lists.

<div id="menu">
