ShiftyNav jQuery plugin

ShiftyNav is a jQuery plugin. It provides a unique set of animations for navigation on websites, inspired by the Android apps and widgets screen. ShiftyNav is really easy to implement, similar to using jQuery UI Tabs.


Check out the demo:


The only dependency of ShiftyNav is jQuery 1.4.0 or higher.

Supported browsers:

  • Google Chrome 4+
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.5+
  • Safari 3.1+
  • Opera 10.5+
  • Internet Explorer 9+


The usage of ShiftyNav is similar to jQuery UI Tabs, the only difference is that you need to wrap the content divs in an extra div.

<div id="nav">
        <li><a href="#text-1">Text 1</a></li>
        <li><a href="#text-2">Text 2</a></li>
        <li><a href="#text-3">Text 3</a></li>
        <div id="text-1">
            Some text
        <div id="text-2">
            Some text
        <div id="text-3">
            Some text

You can call ShiftyNav on the outer div like this.

$(function() {


There are several options you can specify when calling ShiftyNav.

    'active': 0,      // Active page on load
    'duration': 400,  // Duration of animations in milliseconds
    'scaling': 75     // Scaling percentage on fade out animations
