LazeeMenu is a JQuery plugin that turns a nested unordered list of links into a vertical multi-level navigation menu. It is visually inspired by the menu on Github's reference pages, but with support for an additional level. It support both links and standard text in the expandable menu items.


Homepage - Demo | Download ZIP

Install with NPM

npm install lazeemenu

Getting started

Download the plugin, unzip it and copy the files to your project folder. Then include the css and js inside your HTML.

    <!-- Load LazeeMenu CSS -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/lazeemenu/lazeemenu.css"></script>
    <!-- Add this at the bottom of the body tag -->
    <!-- Load JQuery -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <!-- Load LazeeMenu -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/lazeemenu/lazeemenu-jquery.js"></script>

Sample menu and how to activate:

<ul id="menu-1">
            <li><a href="/">Serves</a></li>
            <li class="active"><a href="/">Player results</a></li>
            <li><a href="/">Leagues</a></li>
            <li><a href="/">Tournaments</a></li>
            <li><a href="/">Dancers</a></li>
            <li><a href="/">Famous acts</a></li>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {

There are also a few options that can be extended:

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
            activeClass: 'active',
            initialState: 'default'        


These are the options you can set during activation of a menu.


  • Type: string
  • Default: active

The name of the class name used in li elements to indicate what link that should be marked as active.


  • Type: string
  • Default: default

You can set this value to expanded if you initially want the entire menu expanded. Setting it to collapsed will collapse the menu. Finally default (Which is the default ;)) will make sure that the active link is expanded. Everything else will be collapsed.

Public methods


Expand all menu items



Collapse all menu items

You can’t perform that action at this time.
