A pretty nice sliding menu written in jQuery/CSS that slides out from the toggle button and transforms the hamburger button into a close button when toggled.

How to use it:

1. Insert the hamburger toggle button and menu items into the page.

<div class="menu-block">
  <nav class="menu-nav">
    <a class="menu-nav__link" href="#">Home</a>
    <a class="menu-nav__link" href="#">Portfolio</a>
    <a class="menu-nav__link" href="#">About</a>
    <a class="menu-nav__link" href="#">Contacts</a>
  <a href="#" class="menu-btn">

2. The main CSS/CSS3 styles for the sliding menu.

.menu-block {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;
  overflow: hidden;
  border-top-right-radius: 50px;
  border-bottom-right-radius: 50px;

.menu-nav {
  background-color: #fff;
  height: 50px;
  line-height: 50px;
  padding-left: 20px;
  padding-right: 40px;
  margin-right: -25px;
  border-top-left-radius: 50px;
  border-bottom-left-radius: 50px;
  /*--| animation |--*/
  transition: 0.5s;
  transform-origin: right center;
  transform: translateX(100%);
  opacity: 0;

.menu-nav_active {
  transform: translateX(0);
  opacity: 1;

.menu-nav__link {
  display: inline-block;
  color: #222;
  margin-right: 20px;

3. The main CSS/CSS3 styles for the hamburger toggle button.

.menu-btn {
  display: block;
  width: 50px;
  height: 50px;
  background-color: #fff;
  border-radius: 50%;
  position: relative;

.menu-btn span, 
.menu-btn span:before,
.menu-btn span:after { 
  position: absolute;
  top: 50%; margin-top: -1px;
  left: 50%; margin-left: -10px;
  width: 20px;
  height: 2px;
  background-color: #222;

.menu-btn span:before,
.menu-btn span:after {
  content: '';
  display: block;
  transition: 0.2s;

.menu-btn span:before {
  transform: translateY(-5px);

.menu-btn span:after {
  transform: translateY(5px);

.menu-btn_active span {
  height: 0;

.menu-btn_active span:before {
  transform: rotate(45deg);

.menu-btn_active span:after {
  transform: rotate(-45deg);

4. Include the needed jQuery library at the bottom of the page.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>

5. The jQuery script to activate the sliding menu.

$('.menu-btn').on('click', function(e) {
