DEPRECATED see cerijs and ceri-side-nav


for the best user-experience when navigating your side, you can use a responsive side-nav.



npm install --save-dev vue-side-nav
// vue touch@next - not released on npm currently
npm install --save-dev git://

// vue@1.0
npm install --save-dev vue-side-nav@1 vue-touch@1

or include build/bundle.js.


# somewhere

# in your component
  "side-nav": require("vue-side-nav")
# or, when using bundle.js
  "side-nav": window.vueComps.sideNav
  <li>First Text<li>
<!-- sibling elements will be set to margin-left:240px for `fixed` and `is-fixed=true` -->

For examples see dev/.

ERROR: Module build failed: SyntaxError: 'with' in strict mode

Currently buble is injecting strict mode in all processed js files. The down to ES5 compiled component contains with, which is forbidden in strict mode. Buble is used, for example, in rollup, which is used in laravel.

If you are running in this problem, make sure to exclude this component from processing with buble.

You can provide a transition like this:

  moveIn: function ({el,style,cb}) {
    Velocity el, "stop"
    Velocity el, style, {
      duration: 300,
      queue: false,
      easing: 'easeOutQuad',
      complete: cb

The background is managed by vue-overlay. See here for an example on how to change its fading function.
