A simple, responsive, easy-to-config, mobile-friendly sidebar navigation (also known as off-canvas nav, push menu) template built with Bootstrap framework and jQuery library.

Especially useful for dashboards, documentation pages, and any content-driven sites where you want to have a sticky sidebar navigation menu.

How to use it:

1. Install the package and run build.

$ npm i startbootstrap-simple-sidebar-With-jQuery
$ npm run build

2. Import the bundled CSS into your document.

<link href="dist/css/styles.css" rel="stylesheet" />
// or import the scss
@import "startbootstrap-simple-sidebar-master/src/scss/styles.scss";

3. The HTML template for the sidebar navigation. Make sure to keep all page content within the #page-content-wrapper. The top navbar is optional, and just for demonstration. Just create an element with the #menu-toggle ID which will toggle the menu when clicked.

<div class="d-flex" id="wrapper">
  <!-- Sidebar-->
  <div class="bg-light border-right" id="sidebar-wrapper">
    <div class="sidebar-heading">jQueryScript</div>
    <div class="list-group list-group-flush">
      <a class="list-group-item list-group-item-action bg-light" href="#!">Dashboard</a>
      <a class="list-group-item list-group-item-action bg-light" href="#!">Shortcuts</a>
      <a class="list-group-item list-group-item-action bg-light" href="#!">Overview</a>
      <a class="list-group-item list-group-item-action bg-light" href="#!">Events</a>
      <a class="list-group-item list-group-item-action bg-light" href="#!">Profile</a>
      <a class="list-group-item list-group-item-action bg-light" href="#!">Status</a>
  <!-- Page Content-->
  <div id="page-content-wrapper">
    <nav class="navbar navbar-expand-lg navbar-light bg-light border-bottom">
      <button class="btn btn-primary" id="menu-toggle">Toggle Menu</button>
      <button class="navbar-toggler" type="button" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#navbarSupportedContent" aria-controls="navbarSupportedContent" aria-expanded="false" aria-label="Toggle navigation"><span class="navbar-toggler-icon"></span></button>
      <div class="collapse navbar-collapse" id="navbarSupportedContent">
        <ul class="navbar-nav ml-auto mt-2 mt-lg-0">
          <li class="nav-item active">
            <a class="nav-link" href="#!">
              <span class="sr-only">(current)</span>
          <li class="nav-item"><a class="nav-link" href="#!">Link</a></li>
          <li class="nav-item dropdown">
            <a class="nav-link dropdown-toggle" id="navbarDropdown" href="#!" role="button" data-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">Dropdown</a>
            <div class="dropdown-menu dropdown-menu-right" aria-labelledby="navbarDropdown">
              <a class="dropdown-item" href="#!">Action</a>
              <a class="dropdown-item" href="#!">Another action</a>
              <div class="dropdown-divider"></div>
              <a class="dropdown-item" href="#!">Something else here</a>
    <div class="container-fluid">
      <h1 class="mt-4">Simple Sidebar</h1>

4. The main jQuery script to enable the sidebar navigation. he starting state of the menu will appear collapsed on smaller screens, and will appear non-collapsed on larger screens. When toggled using the button below, the menu will change.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
$("#menu-toggle").click(function (e) {
