I'm going to be working on this soon as well. gkatz have you tried just scraping the source offa the demo page? It works fine on there, I reckon he just forgot to push his last changes to git?
No disrespect to wneilson, but JAM is a much cleaner implementation of a sliding side menu. Plus it sounds delicious.. jam.. mmmmm.
edit - damn, looks like the live demo is offline.

If I recall the live demo had a minified and concatenated version so I could not get it from there. I also tried to figure out what was wrong with the code in the github myself but I just could not fix it.
I hope the author will update his github soon as I like JAM and would want to start using it as soon as i can...

Pitty. Will start working on it soon. Can't wait to pump up the jam.

Demo is back online, sorry guys.
I have this thing with changing folder names in my public dropbox from time to time, and then forgetting to update links

OK, since I see there's real trouble setting up even a basic app using just barebones I provided through GIT, I'll prepare the whole deal - small demo app that will show you how to integrate and use the menu plugin, along with changing views from menu.
Please, don't ask me questions like "how do I make app remember the last view I was on before I exited...".
This is not the goal of this plugin. You will have to code in your own logic for specific features you need, or else this plugin will end up being too complicated and not "just" app menu
Will be back soon, stay tuned.

Awesome, thanks! I've got a basic side menu going now that lets me punch through different nav views, but your implementation is much nicer. Looking forward to your next demo!

Well, "I've been busy" is somewhat weak term
It's almost 4am, I have a frog eyes, and I'm gonna crash any minute now
But, I have some news for all of you JAM lovers. Checkout GitHub repo. I am sure you'll find couple of sweets (apk file amongst others). Yummmmy
Now, make sure you copy contents of your downloaded sdk 2.0.1 to the designated folder - it is clearly marked, you won't miss it.
I've tried 2.1.1, it works, but there are some mask issues (guessing it's css related) - I'll tend to this as soon as I get some shut-eye.

well, still unusable.
the index.html points to 2.1.1 and not 2.0.1. trying to work with 2.1.1 yielded the same results as before the latest check-in (cramped components on the upper left side). I think the majority needs 2.1.1 support.
thanks for the re-factoring and putting the time to fix this but I will wait until this thing is stable enough.

Fixed path to SDK in index.html. This is really not a biggie man, you just needed to drop the SDK and fix this path, cmon Have you actually tried it with 2.0.1?
Cramped components on the upper left side - this is what I saw when trying to use old css build, from 2.0.1 sdk. I think this is solved by rebuilding scss files using defaults from 2.1.1.
I'll check this css issue once more, and try to get it right for 2.1.1 with mask and all.
Boy, you're talking like 2.1.1 is Holy Grail compared to 2.0.1
I've been out of the game for a month or two - can you tell me what are the real improvements in 2.1.1?
I remember reading topic about upcoming release/ongoing issues a while back, bad scroll performance on Androids, for example, and it didn't sound they were going to fix it in 2.1.1....

listen, I have changed what ever I could (inc. the path to the SDK) but it did not work with 2.1.1.
I personally appreciate your work and help. however, if you put a component out and expect others to fix it up I think you are taking the wrong path.
also, it does not really matter what benefits 2.1.1 has over 2.0.1. its the principle of being able to use whatever build we developers choose and have the component work, not to mention that fact that 2.2 is just around the corner and I am aiming to use it.
just my 2 cents.
