jvette is a lightweight, unobtrusive jQuery plugin used to create a responsive, fully evented off-canvas navigation with silky smooth CSS3 animations.

Basic usage:

1. To get started, first add a reference to the jVette assets. NOTE: jVette should be referenced AFTER jQuery.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="assets/css/jvette.min.css"> 

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="assets/js/jvette.min.js"></script>

2. Load the jQuery easing plugin for additional easing effects.

<script src="jquery.easing.min.js"></script>

3. Create a button to trigger the off-canvas navigation. Add the data attribute data-jv-trigger with a value of left | right | close.

<button class="btn" data-jv-trigger="left"><span></span></button>

4. Create a nav list for the off-canvas navigation. Add the data attribute data-jv-content with a value of left | right to define which panel the content block belongs to.

<nav data-jv-content="left" data-jv-order="0">
  <ul role="navigation">
    <li><a href="#" class="active">Home</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Link 1</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Link 2</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Link 3</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Link 4</a></li>

5. Invoke jVette:

;(function($, jVette)
  jVette && jVette();

})(window.jQuery, jVette);

6. jVette default options:

var defaults = {

// enabled by default
disabled: false,
transforms: true,

//  animation,
slide: {
  easing: 'swing',
  duration: 350 

// TouchSwipe (if available) options,
swipe: {
  threshold: 10,
  allowPageScroll: 'vertical'                    

// events
onenable: function(e) {},
onenabled: function(e) {},
ondisable: function(e) {},
ondisabled: function(e) {},
onopen: function(e) {},
onopened: function(e) {},
onclose: function(e) {},
onclosed: function(e) {}


7. jVette is a singleton, and can be invoked with or without the new operator.

;(function($, jVette)
  var jv1 = jVette && jVette();
  var jv2 = jVette && new jVette();
  // equates to true since both are the same instance
  window.console && window.console.log(jv1 === jv2);

})(window.jQuery, jVette);

8. Available Events.

jVette().on('open', function(e) { … })
jVette().on('opened', function(e) { … })
jVette().on('close', function(e) { … })
jVette().on('closed', function(e) { … })
jVette().on('enable', function(e) { … })
jVette().on('enabled', function(e) { … })
jVette().on('disable', function(e) { … })
jVette().on('disabled', function(e) { … })
jVette().on('changed', function(e) { … })

9. jVette also supports method chaining.
