jQuery Off-screen Slide-Out Navigation Panel Plugin - bigSlide

bigSlide is a jQuery menu plugin for creating an off-screen side panel navigation that slides out from the left side of your page and 'pushes' the body content to the right.

How to use it:

1. Create the html for the side panel navigation menu.

<nav id="menu" class="panel" role="navigation">
<li><a href="https://www.jqueryscript.net/" title="jQueryScript Home">Home</a></li>

2. Create a link to trigger the slide-out navigation effect.

<div class="push"> <a href="#menu" class="menu-link">&#9776;</a>

3. Load the jQuery javascript library and bigslide.js on your web page.

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="dist/bigSlide.js"></script> 

4. Call the plugin and we're done.

$(document).ready(function() {

5. Default Options.

var settings = $.extend({

// menu selector
'menu': ('#menu'), 

// trigger selector
'push': ('.push'), 

// shrink the main container div instead of only pushing it
'shrink': ('.shrink'),

// The side of the navigation menu (either 'right' or 'left')
'side': 'left', 

// the width of your menu
'menuWidth': '15.625em', 

// animation speed
'speed': '300',

'state': 'closed',

// CSS class added to the menu button when it is open
'activeBtn': 'active',

// allow users to toggle the menu closed with any click
'easyClose': false,

// save open/close state
'saveState': false,

}, options);
