In today's article, I will introduce some popular libraries to create navigation for website design and development.
Navigation is an integral part of a website whose main feature is to help users easily navigate to the main sections of the website. When we design navigation, the first condition is to design so that users can easily access and understand the structure of the website. Then add many useful features with highly aesthetic design for navigation.
Vertical Fixed Navigation
Vertical fixed navigation helps you to create vertical navigation navigation quickly and easily. It helps users have a more overview of the content of the page and go to the links of the web pages quickly. As you hover your mouse over each button on the right, key information will be displayed automatically. It have detail examples for edit the content and set the style for each navigation element.
Drawer is a Jquery library with a combination of iScroll and CSS that helps you to create many different types of navigation for your website such as navbar, sidebar, fixed navbar... and for each type we also have can determine its position when displayed in the web page. You can easily set it up directly in the HTML page via CDN or download it on Github. It has detailed instructions for each step from setup, use to how to extend through defining properties that you can refer to more in the demo page.
Mega Dropdown helps you build navigation with many nested subcomponents displayed in a clear and understandable way. For example, when your website sells many types of products and in each category are divided into smaller categories, Mega Dropdown will help you solve the problem quickly and easily. In addition, we can also easily set styles, edit components in navigation, handle events through pre-written code in the demo page.
bigSlide.js is a build library by Jquery that makes it easy to navigate the build in a style slider with a size of only about 1kb (after compression). You just need to download the js file and you can use it without any additional libraries. In addition, it also has properties to help you fine-tune flexibly in your work.
Responsive Retina-Ready Menu
Responsive Retina-Ready Menu is a built-in navigation and automatically resizes based on the size of the screen. And it is designed with 3 main screens: desktop, tablet and mobile phone. It also has a full step-by-step description so we can easily understand how the component is built. Plus the harmonious color design as well as interesting hover effects, I believe this is a good navigation option for your website.
Multi-level push menu
Multi-level push menu is a Jquery library that makes it easy to build navigation with many interlocking sub-components but still display in an intuitive, clear and understandable way. It runs on most of today's popular browsers and provides different types of navigation to help you have a wider choice for your website. As for the steps of setting up or tweaking the navigation component, there are examples with the corresponding code as well as a demo page for each of them.
Circular Navigation is a pre-written navigation and you just have to view the demo and download it. If you want to learn more about how it is made, you can see a detailed step-by-step description below. This is a navigation in my opinion that has a creative, modern style and is a bit different from the usual navigation. It also helps you to reduce the area when placing on the website through the hidden elements in the navigation.
