scotchPanels.js - jQuery Off Canvas Menus and Panels Plugin

scotchPanel.js

scotchPanels.js is a jQuery plugin for easily creating off canvas menus, navigations, and other panel types such as images, videos, and iframes. Scotch Panels are featured-packed and have a ton of different options for every skill-level to tweak and implement into almost any project. Scotch Panels work from any container so you can put your side navigation on any element you want. It even provides excellent backwards-compatible browser support via a JavaScript fallback. Lastly, there's over 30 stripped down code samples to get you up and running in no time.

GETTING STARTED THE EASY WAY

Add scotchPanels.js

After jQuery, add the scotchPanels.js file.

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

Step 2: Pick the Container

Decide on the container that you want your Panel to come out of. Try to pick a container that doesn't have any padding in the direction of where the Panel will be coming out of.

Step 3: Add Your Panel's Markup inside of that Container

You'll want to add this markup inside of that container. If you are building a side navigation, put this directly below the opening body tag. If you want your panel inside of a custom div or wrapper, put it inside of that div.

<div id="panel-example">
    <h2>Whatever you want in your panel</h2>
    <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Maiores, blanditiis.</p>
</div>

Step 3: Add a button to toggle the Panel

This demo is showing how to create a click event, but you can tie opening and closing toggles to whatever events you want.

<a href="#" class="toggle-panel">Toggle Panel</a>

Step 4: Initialize and Configure

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

$('#panel-example').scotchPanel({
    containerSelector: 'body', // As a jQuery Selector
    direction: 'left', // Make it toggle in from the left
    duration: 300, // Speed in ms how fast you want it to be
    transition: 'ease', // CSS3 transition type: linear, ease, ease-in, ease-out, ease-in-out, cubic-bezier(P1x,P1y,P2x,P2y)
    clickSelector: '.toggle-panel', // Enables toggling when clicking elements of this class
    distanceX: '70%', // Size fo the toggle
    enableEscapeKey: true // Clicking Esc will close the panel
});

Getting Started the Dev Way

Step 1: Add scotchPanels.js

Feel free to use a front-end pakage manager like Bower.

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

Step 2: Add Your Panel's Markup

Make sure this is inside of the container you want this to slide out of.

<div id="panel-example">
    <h2>Whatever you want in your panel</h2>
    <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Maiores, blanditiis.</p>
</div>

Step 3: Initialize, configure, and return

This is very similar to the easy way, except you'll be returning the function as an object to be able to integrate into your front-end code and logic.

var panelExample = $('#panel-example').scotchPanel({
    containerSelector: 'body', // Make this appear on the entire screen
    direction: 'left', // Make it toggle in from the left
    duration: 300, // Speed in ms how fast you want it to be
    transition: 'ease', // CSS3 transition type: linear, ease, ease-in, ease-out, ease-in-out, cubic-bezier(P1x,P1y,P2x,P2y)
    clickSelector: '.toggle-panel', // Enables toggling when clicking elements of this class
    distanceX: '70%', // Size fo the toggle
    enableEscapeKey: true // Clicking Esc will close the panel
});

Step 4: Do dev things

You can now open, close, and toggle the panel however you want. You have full control to tie it to whatever events you want.

panelExample.open() // Opens the Panel
panelExample.toggle() // Toggles the Panel
panelExample.close() // Closes the Panel

Getting Started the HTML5 Way

Step 1: Add scotchPanels.js

After jQuery, add the scotchPanels.js file.

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

Step 2: Add Your Panel's Markup with HTML5 Data Attribtues

Add the configuration options as data-attributes to your markup

<div id="lefty" class="panelize-meeeee" data-containerSelector="body" data-direction="left" data-clickSelector=".toggle-panel-1">
    <h2>Whatever you want in your panel</h2>
    <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Maiores, blanditiis.</p>
</div>

<div id="righty" class="panelize-meeeee" data-containerSelector="body" data-direction="right" data-clickSelector=".toggle-panel-2">
    <h2>Whatever you want in your panel</h2>
    <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Maiores, blanditiis.</p>
</div>

Step 3: Add Toggle Buttons

Or other events to toggle the Scotch Panels.

<a href="#" class="toggle-panel-1">Toggle Panel 1</a>
<a href="#" class="toggle-panel-2">Toggle Panel 2</a>

Step 4: Initialize and Configure

// Minimum Required Initiation of Panel
/* $('.panlize-meeeee').scotchPanel(); */

// Combination of Data Attributes and Options
$('.panelize-meeeee').scotchPanel({
    direction: 'top', // Will be overwritten by the Data Attributes
    duration: 150 // Will apply to both
});
