Custom options for a specific instance can also be set by attaching a data-offcanvas-options attribute to the target elment. This attribute should contain the properly formatted JSON object representing the custom options.

 data-offcanvas-options='{ "modifiers": "left,overlay",... }'

modifiers "left,overlay" string
baseClass "c-offcanvas" string
modalClass "c-offcanvas-bg" string

role "dialog" string
bodyModifierClass "has-offcanvas" string
supportNoTransitionsClass "support-no-transitions" string
resize false boolean
triggerButton null string
onInit null function
onOpen null function
