  • Overview

    Drawer menus are popular tools used to make the most out of small screen space. On click or tap of an icon (usually a “hamburger”), the menu slides in from the side of the screen. The jQuery Drawer gives such a tool in a ready-to-use, but fully customizable component.

    See the jQuery Drawer demo

  • Mini Mode

    The mini version of the Drawer takes small screen optimization even further. It provides quick access to items even when closed. Rather than the full menu options only the icons are displayed in this mode, providing an even more compact navigation option.

  • Hierarchical Items

    The jQuery Drawer component supports complex navigation scenarios by nesting child items under expandable parent nodes.

  • Overlay and Push Modes

    The jQuery Drawer menu gives you two distinct choices when configuring its behavior

    • Overlay mode: The Drawer menu overlays the content at full height for general navigation scenarios.
    • Push mode: The Drawer menu interacts with a specific section of content and pushes it to the right or left while leaving the rest of the screen untouched. This is perfect for more contextual scenarios.

  • Keyboard Navigation

    Improve accessibility and productivity with keyboard-only navigation. This component supports keyboard navigation to help navigate and interact with items.
