Description:

Creating animated and responsive Hamburger menu using pure CSS only is really time consuming for a developer. Luckily, I was searching for the same thing which can help me in building responsive Hamburger menu and found a small CSS plugin at Github, that helped me a lot.

So, I thought to share the library with you, it may help you. The best part is, its very light in terms of size and available under MIT license. And you can easily customize it as per your requirement.

Its purely written in CSS and Hamburger icon is created using SVG and it will show/hide the the menu when the user clicks on the Hamburger icon.

How can I use it?

First, you will need to include the CSS file under your web page’s <head> section as following. Please change the CSS file path as per your project’s directory structure.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="flyout-menu.min.css">

Then, structure your menu-bar HTML:

<input type="checkbox" class="menu-trigger">
    <ul class="menu" role="menu">
        <li class="start">
            <a href="#">
                <svg preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet" focusable="false" viewBox="-5 -5 34 34">
                    <g><path d="M3 18h18v-2H3v2zm0-5h18v-2H3v2zm0-7v2h18V6H3z" fill="white"></path></g>
                </svg>
            </a>
        </li>
        <li>
            <a href="#">Parent 1</a>
            <ul>
                <li><a href="#">Child Level 2</a>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a>
                            <ul>
                                <li><a href="#">Child Level 4</a></li>
                                <li><a href="#">Child Level 4</a></li>
                                <li><a href="#">Child Level 4</a></li>
                            </ul>
                        </li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>
                <li><a href="#">Child Level 2</a>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>
                <li><a href="#">Child Level 2</a>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>
            </ul>
        </li>
        <li>
            <a href="#">Parent 1</a>
            <ul>
                <li><a href="#">Child Level 2</a>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>
                <li><a href="#">Child Level 2</a>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>
                <li><a href="#">Child Level 2</a>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>
            </ul>
        </li>
        <li>
            <a href="#">Parent 1</a>
            <ul>
                <li><a href="#">Child Level 2</a>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>
                <li><a href="#">Child Level 2</a>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>
                <li><a href="#">Child Level 2</a>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Child Level 3</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>
            </ul>
        </li>
    </ul>
    <div class="overlay"></div>

In above code, a checkbox is used, which will trigger the Hamburger menu.
