jQuery Plugin For Sliding Side Panel - Panel Slider

panelslider is a jQuery plugin that makes your sidebars (side panels) slide out from left or right side of the page as well as pushing the main content to the right or left. Great for creating sliding side menu that has been used in most popular mobile Apps. By default, click outside panel or ESC key will close the side panel. Also can be configured to close the side panel via only close function.

How to use it:

1. Create a link to open a left side panel.

<a id="left-panel-link" href="#left-panel">Open left panel</a>

2. Create a container for the left side panel.

<div id="left-panel" class="panel">

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

4. Call the plugin with default settings.

// If true closes panel when clicking outside it
