FooNav.js - Simple Navigation Plugin


FooNav.js is a free plugin built on jQuery that let's you make a simple menu to help users navigate either your site or a single pages content. You can create your own custom menu links or let the plugin crawl your page for headers and build up a simple navigation menu itself. There are multiple themes to choose from to suite your site, or if you are so inclined you can create your own with a little custom CSS. There are also multiple demos to get you up and running in no time at all.

Getting Started Simple

Step 1: Include the required files

Include the foonav.min.css file.

<link href="http://example.com/css/foonav.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

After jQuery, add the foonav.min.js file.

<script src="http://example.com/js/foonav.min.js"></script>

Step 2: Initialize and Configure

In either a JavaScript file or inline, initalize FooNav. This has to be below the foonav.js file. Some of the following settings below are defaults, and are only added for demonstration purposes.

FooNav.init({
	classes: 'fon-full-height fon-border fon-rounded fon-shadow',

});

Step 3: Use the FooNav Instance

FooNav has it's own ready event to use to avoid asynchronous loading issues. You can see it below allowing you to use the FooNav API to control the plugin, binding it to whatever events you want.

FooNav.init({...configuration...}).ready(function(fnav){
	fnav.toggle(); // Toggles FooNav between open and closed states
	fnav.destroy(); // Completely destroys FooNav removing it from the DOM
	fnav.reinit({
		classes: 'fon-shadow',
		items: '#content',
		position: 'fon-top-left',
		theme: 'fon-dark'
	}); // Reinitializes FooNav with the new options
});
