Mobile-friendly Navigation Drawer For Bootstrap 4

A side drawer component for Bootstrap 4 to create a mobile-friendly off-canvas navigation drawer that can be toggled by a hamburger button.

Inspired by Android (Material Design) navigation drawer concept. Works as an extension to the Bootstrap 4 JavaScript. jQuery is OPTIONAL.

How to use it:

1. The required HTML structure for the navigation drawer.

<div id="side-drawer" class="position-fixed">
  <div class="h-100 bg-white">
    <!-- Side Drawer Title -->
    <div class="p-4 bg-dark">
      <a href="#">
        <h1 class="text-white">Home</h1>
    <!-- Side Drawer Links -->
    <ul id="links" class="list-group" onclick="closeSideDrawer()">
      <a id="link-structure" href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action border-0 rounded-0 active">
      <a id="link-css" href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action border-0 rounded-0">
      <a id="link-javascript" href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action border-0 rounded-0">
      <a id="link-customization" href="#customization" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action border-0 rounded-0">
<div id="side-drawer-void" class="position-fixed d-none" onclick="closeSideDrawer()"></div>

2. Create a hamburger button to toggle the navigation drawer.

<button class="navbar-toggler" type="button" onclick="openSideDrawer()">
  <span class="navbar-toggler-icon"></span>

3. The necessary CSS styles for the navigation drawer.

#side-drawer {
  height: 100vh;
  width: 336px;  /*Ideal width for sidebar accdg to*/
  top: 0;
  left: -336px;
  z-index: 1032;  /*z-index of standard bootstrap navbar is 1030 + 1 offset due to side-drawer-void*/
  transition: left 0.25s ease;

#side-drawer-void {
  height: 100%;
  width: 100%;
  top: 0;
  z-index: 1031;  /*z-index of standard bootstrap navbar is 1030*/
  background: rgba(0,0,0,.6);

4. The main JavaScript to enable the navigation drawer. Copy the following snippets and insert them after Bootstrap's JavaScript. Done.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/cdn/bootstrap.min.css" />
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/cdn/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
function openSideDrawer() {
  document.getElementById("side-drawer").style.left = "0";

function closeSideDrawer() {
  document.getElementById("side-drawer").style.left = "-336px";
