Rotating Circle Menu With JavaScript And CSS – Pentagon Menu

Description:

A Pentagon Popup Menu that arranges 5 menu items around a circle and displays them with a rotation effect when toggled.

How to use it:

1. Create the circle menu from a nav element.

<nav class="menu open_menu">&equiv;
  <a class="nav-item" title='Home' href="#">Home Icon</a>
  <a class="nav-item" title='Search' href="#">Search Icon</a>
  <a class="nav-item" title='Notifications' href="#">Notification Icon</a>
  <a class="nav-item" title='Favorites' href="#">Favorites Icon</a>
  <a class="nav-item" title='Profile' href="#">Profile Icon</a>
</nav>

2. The main CSS styles for the toggle button.

:root {
  --btn-size: 150px;
  --accent-color: red;
}
.menu {
  position: relative;
  width: var(--btn-size);
  aspect-ratio: 1 / 1;
  border-radius: 50%;
  display: grid;
  place-items: center;
  text-align: center;
  color: white; 
  cursor: pointer;
  user-select: none;
  transition: 0.75s;
  line-height: 100%;
}
.menu:after {
  content: '\2630';
  width: var(--btn-size);
  aspect-ratio: 1 / 1;
  position: absolute;
  left: 0;
  top: 0;
  display: grid;
  place-items: center;
  background: var(--accent-color);
  border-radius: inherit;
  font-size: calc(var(--btn-size) * .48);
  transition: .75s;
  box-shadow:
    0 10px 15px rgba(0,0,0,.5);
}
.open_menu:after {
  content: '\00D7';
  background: gray;
}

3. Style & animate the menu items.

.nav-item {
  width: var(--btn-size);
  aspect-ratio: 1 / 1;
  border-radius: 50%;
  background: var(--accent-color);
  position: absolute;
  transition: 0.75s;
  user-select: none;
  left: 0;
  top: 0;
  transform: scale(0.1);
  box-shadow: 0 5px 5px rgba(0,0,0,.25);
  text-decoration: none;
  font-family: sans-serif;
  color: white;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  display: grid;
  place-items: center;
}
.open_menu .nav-item {
  transform: scale(1) rotate(360deg);
}
.open_menu .nav-item:hover {
  transform: scale(1.25) rotate(360deg);
}
.open_menu .nav-item:nth-child(1) {
  top: calc(var(--btn-size) * -.4);
  left: calc(var(--btn-size) * -1.2);
}
.open_menu .nav-item:nth-child(2) {
  top: calc(var(--btn-size) * -1.2);
  left: 0px;
}
.open_menu .nav-item:nth-child(3) {
  top: calc(var(--btn-size) * -.4);
  left: calc(var(--btn-size) * 1.2);
}
.open_menu .nav-item:nth-child(4) {
  top: calc(var(--btn-size) * 1);
  left: calc(var(--btn-size) * -.8);
}
.open_menu .nav-item:nth-child(5) {
  top: var(--btn-size);
  left: calc(var(--btn-size) * .8);
}

4. Enable the toggle button to reveal the menu items.

document.querySelector(".menu").addEventListener("click", function () {
	this.classList.toggle("open_menu");
});
