Just another jQuery extension of Bootstrap that automatically converts the native Bootstrap header navbar into an off-canvas overlay navigation menu in mobile views.

How to use it:

1. First you need to load Bootstrap framework and jQuery library into your webpage

2. Add the jQuery bootstrap.offcanvas plugin's stylesheet and JavaScript to the webpage.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="bootstrap.offcanvas.css">
<script src="bootstrap.offcanvas.js"></script>

3. Add several additional CSS classes to the default Bootstrap navbar as follows:

<nav class="navbar navbar-default" role="navigation">
  <div class="container-fluid">
    <div class="navbar-header">
      <a class="navbar-brand" href="#">Demo</a>
      <button type="button" class="navbar-toggle offcanvas-toggle pull-right" data-toggle="offcanvas" data-target="#js-bootstrap-offcanvas" style="float:left;">
        <span class="sr-only">Toggle navigation</span>
          <span class="icon-bar"></span>
          <span class="icon-bar"></span>
          <span class="icon-bar"></span>
    <div class="navbar-offcanvas navbar-offcanvas-touch" id="js-bootstrap-offcanvas">
      <ul class="nav navbar-nav">
        <li class="active"><a href="#">Link</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Link</a></li>
        <li class="dropdown">
          <a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" id="dropdownMenu2" data-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">Another Link <span class="caret"></span></a>
          <ul class="dropdown-menu" aria-labelledby="dropdownMenu2" role="menu">
            <li><a href="#">Action</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Another action</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Something else here</a></li>
            <li class="divider"></li>
            <li><a href="#">Separated link</a></li>
            <li class="divider"></li>
            <li><a href="#">One more separated link</a></li>
      <form class="navbar-form navbar-left" role="search">
        <div class="form-group">
          <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Search">
        <button type="submit" class="btn btn-default">Submit</button>
      <ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar-right">
        <li><a href="#">Link</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Another Link</a></li>
