This is a jQuery and CSS/CSS3 based header navigation that will be fixed on the top of the page and auto highlight the current menu item when you scroll past its content section. Also provides a functionality to smoothly scroll the webpage to target content sections by clicking on the navigation menu. Fully responsive powered by CSS3 flexbox model.

How to use it:

1. Create the header navigation as this:

<section class="stickyhero-tabs">
  <div class="stickyhero-tabs-container">
    <a class="stickyhero-tab" href="#tab-section1">Section 1</a>
    <a class="stickyhero-tab" href="#tab-section2">Section 2</a>
    <a class="stickyhero-tab" href="#tab-section3">Section 3</a>
    <a class="stickyhero-tab" href="#tab-section4">Section 4</a>
    <a class="stickyhero-tab" href="#tab-section5">Section 5</a>
    <span class="stickyhero-tab-slider"></span>
  </div>
</section>

2. Create the corresponding content sections. Note that the section's ID must match the href attribute as shown below.

<main class="stickymain">
  <section class="stickyslide" id="tab-section1">
    <h1>Section 1</h1>
    <h3>something about Section 1</h3>
  </section>
  <section class="stickyslide" id="tab-section2">
    <h1>Section 2</h1>
    <h3>something about Section 2</h3>
  </section>
  <section class="stickyslide" id="tab-section3">
    <h1>Section 3</h1>
    <h3>Section 3</h3>
  </section>
  <section class="stickyslide" id="tab-section4">
    <h1>Section 4</h1>
    <h3>Section 4</h3>
  </section>
  <section class="stickyslide" id="tab-section5">
    <h1>Section 5</h1>
    <h3>Section 5</h3>
  </section>
</main>

3. Style the header navigation in the CSS.

    }
  }
  
  checkTabContainerPosition() {

    if($(window).scrollTop() > offset) {

      let id = $(this).attr('href');
      let offsetTop = $(id).offset().top - self.tabContainerHeight;
      let offsetBottom = $(id).offset().top + $(id).height() - self.tabContainerHeight;
      if($(window).scrollTop() > offsetTop && $(window).scrollTop() < offsetBottom) {
        newCurrentId = id;
        newCurrentTab = $(this);
