Phonon Framework


Side Panels

The side panel slides in from the left or from the right. On tablets, you you can expose it.

We used/forked a tiny library called snap.js to support gestures.

Live Example



Link to the CSS file if you loaded phonon-base.css only:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="side-panels.css">

Link to the JS file if you loaded phonon-core.js only:

<script src="side-panels.js"></script>


Include the HTML code below in your index.html file outside page declarations. If the side panel should be visible from the left, add the class .side-panel-left or from the right .side-panel-right.

Side panels are now supporting a single page or many pages with the data-page attribute.
