How to realize side navigation like in an app


I want to realize a
side navigation
like most mobile apps have today, for the tablet version of my application.
The main problem is, how to get the side navigation, e.g. a panel, visible when the user wipes from the left display boundary to the right side and hidden the other way round.
I hope, some of you are able to give me some hints.

  • Is it already realized in Vaadin TouchKit?
  • Is there an Add-on in the directory already and I haven’t found it?
  • Do I have to implement a “new” component including some fancy JavaScript library?

Thanks in advance,


have you looked at the
SideMenu add-on
? Not sure if it has that wipe behavior you describe, but otherwise it looks like what you might need.

Hope this helps,
