Customizable Context Menus and Dropdowns With Vanilla JS – Tiny Popup Menu

Description:

A lightweight JavaScript popup menu library to easily add context menus or dropdowns that open on click or right click of a trigger element.

The popup isn’t just limited to menu items. You can insert any custom elements, making it adaptable to various use cases.

How to use it:

1. Import the Tiny Popup Menu’s JavaScript and Stylesheet.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/dist/css/tiny-popup-menu.css" />
<script src="/dist/tiny-popup-menu.js"></script>

2. Initiate a new instance of TinyPopupMenu and define your menu items. These items should be structured as a JavaScript array of objects as follows:

const myMenu = new TinyPopupMenu({
      menuItems: [
        {
          content: 'Menu Item 1',
          callback: () => alert('You Clicked Item 1')
        },
        {
          content: 'Menu Item 2',
          callback: () => alert('You Clicked Item 2')
        },
        '-', // separator
        {
          content: 'Menu Item 3',
          callback: () => alert('You Clicked Item 3')
        },
        // ... more items here
      ]
});

3. Enable a button to toggle the popup menu.

myTogglerButton.onclick = function (event) {
  myMenu.open(event);
};

4. Or attach the popup menu to a toggle button programatically.

myMenu.addToggler(myTogglerButton, {
  // options
}, 
'click' // custom trigger event
);

5. All default options.

const myMenu = new TinyPopupMenu({
      // or 'top'
      position: "bottom",
      // additional CSS class
      className: '',
      // only one popup menu is activated at a time
      autoClose: true,
      // shows arrow indicator
      arrow: true,
      // custom margin
      margin: 5,
      // custom x/y offsets
      offset: {
        x: 0,
        y: 0
      },
      // menu items here
      menuItems: [],
      // prevents the native click event
      stopClick: true
      
});

6. Events.

// triggered on open
myMenu.on('open', () => console.log('Open event'));
// triggered on close
myMenu.on('close', () => console.log('Close event'));
// triggered on update
myMenu.on('updateposition', () => console.log('Update position event'));
