slimMenu: Responsive Multilevel Navigation

Responsive layouts are in today.

In fact, I haven’t created a website that wasn’t check on the Ipad, Iphone and other smaller screens.

Navigation is perhaps one of the most difficult to code in a responsive manner. Multi-level navigation is a pain.

slimMenu was created to ease that pain. if you use jQuery, you’ll feel right at home since slimMenu is a jQuery plugin.


You no longer need to struggle with media queries and all that. All you need is a list or multi-level list and slimMenu and you’re ready to go.

Here a few features slimMenu offers:

  • Multi-level nested menus.
  • 100% mobile responsive menus.
  • Multiple slimMenu navigations on the same page.
  • Tap areas to toggle sub menus easily in touch devices.
  • Hover option and effects for desktop version.
  • Submenu indentation options for responsive version.
