Simple sidenav

Simple sidenav is a simple, easily customizable, animated menu, with the possibility of infinite nesting that was built specifically for Angular apps.



npm install simple-sidenav --save



# app.module.ts
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';

import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { SimpleSidenavModule } from 'simple-sidenav';

  declarations: [
  imports: [
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }


# app.component.ts
import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { SimpleMenu } from 'simple-sidenav';

  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.scss']
export class AppComponent {
  menu: SimpleMenu[] = [...];
  animation: SimpleAnimation = {
    in: { value: 'slide-in-stagger' },
    out: { value: 'slide-out', duration: 200 }

  onClick(item: {id: number|string, name: string, icon: string, index: number}) {


# app.component.html

[menu] prop example:

menu: SimpleMenu[] = [
  { "id": "1", "name": "Ruby on Rails", "icon": "assets/images/rails.png", "menu": [
    { "id": "1", "name": "Models", "menu": [
      { "id": "1", "name": "Active Record Basics" },
      { "id": "2", "name": "Active Record Migrations" },
      { "id": "3", "name": "Active Record Validations" },
      { "id": "4", "name": "Active Record Callbacks" },
      { "id": "5", "name": "Active Record Associations" },
      { "id": "6", "name": "Active Record Query Interface", "menu": [...] }
    ] },
    ] },
  { "id": "2", "name": "Angular", "icon": "assets/images/angular.png", "menu": [...] },

NOTE: id must be unique, an icon is optional, a menu can contain an infinite level of nested menu

[activeID] prop example:

If you want menu to be opened by default at some position just pass an id of menu item to [activeID] prop.


[animation] prop example:

We have two types of animation, in and out. Value is a name of animation. Duration is an optional parameter that shows how long the animation should work.

For in: we have two animations for choice slide-in | slide-in-stagger.

For out: just one slide-out.

  "in": { "value": "slide-in-stagger" },
  "out": { "value": "slide-out", "duration": "200" }

If you don’t want any animations - just pass false into [animation]="false"


Props Default value Interface Description Required
[menu] none SimpleMenu[] See example above. true
[animation] false SimpleAnimation Pass object with animation name. See example above. false
(onSidenav) ---- -------- Pass callback function to listen for sidenav clicks. $event contains an id and index of the clicked element. false
[animate] false boolean Set to true if you want to animate the first appearance of the sidenav. false
[withArrow] true boolean Set to false if you want to hide an arrow icon. false
[activeID] none string Pass an ID of menu item if you want it to be opened by default. false
