Responsive Sidebar Menu Design using HTML, CSS, and Javascript

Hello readers, today in this blog you'll learn how to create a responsive sidebar menu design using HTML, CSS, and Javascript. In our previous blog, we saw how to create a responsive navbar design using HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Now it's time to create a responsive sidebar menu design. I've also shared many projects related to Javascript. So don't forget to check here.

In this design [Responsive Sidebar Menu] we have a sidebar on the left side of the page. This sidebar has a dark blue background color. It has a menu toggle button which I shared before when you click on the button a class will be added to the sidebar and it will increase its width with a smooth transition.

Preview is available here.
