My first attempt to make a Facebook-like sliding navigational component, SlideNavigation, has proved to be pretty useful. However, I've gotten a lot of queries from people asking how to make it work in ways that I never originally intended. Some of the most frequent requests are:
- Support for both left and right menus simultaneously
- Using components other than a list in the menu
- Support for multiple slide navigation instances in the same app
- Nesting the slide navigation inside other components
With the way that the component is currently designed, achieving any of these would require quite a bit of code changes. So, I've started working on an updated version that is more flexible. I've decoupled the navigation component from the slide component. As a result, all of the above use-cases are now possible and I'm calling the new component 'Ext.ux.slide.View'.
I'll be uploading the code onto GitHub and would love to get some help finishing it. In the meantime, here is a short video to highlight some of the new features of the component.
