Slide Out Sidebar
The slide out sidebar is a demonstration of jQuery’s ability to smoothly animate sections of HTML in such a way that they can appear and disappear. JQuery is not really needed to change the layout of the page or to even make the items disappear and reappear. It is, however, a great way to add an animated touch to the process.
I am a big fan of being able to use my phone to browse the internet. I love that you can set items to appear with the click of a button or by moussing over an area. This is a great way to take advantage of limited screen space. I will be using this a lot more in combination with other jQuery functions to provide a page that reacts well to a multitude of screen sizes.
