A simple responsive jQuery navigation script that converts your navigation menu into a dropdown toggle menu on small screens with only 3 lines of Javascript.

Usage:

1. Create a link that will be served as a toggle button on small screen devices.

<a href="#" class="resToggle">☰</a>

2. Create a navigation menu for your website.

<nav class="the-nav">
<ul>
<li><a href="#"> Menu 1 </a></li>
<li><a href="#"> Menu 2 </a></li>
<li><a href="#"> Menu 3 </a></li>
..
</ul>
</nav>

3. All the Html for the toggle menu should be like this.

<header class="the-header clearfix">
<a href="#" class="resToggle">☰</a>
<nav class="the-nav">
<nav class="the-nav">
<ul>
<li><a href="#"> Menu 1 </a></li>
<li><a href="#"> Menu 2 </a></li>
<li><a href="#"> Menu 3 </a></li>
..
</ul>
</nav>
</nav>
</header>

4. The CSS to style the toggle menu and set the responsive breakpoint using CSS3 media queries.

box-sizing: border-box;
}
.clearfix:after {
content: "";
display: table;
