To create an Animated Navigation bar Using HTML CSS & Javascript you have to create three files (HTML, CSS, and JS) files with the named index.html, style.css, and Script.js in the same folder and you have to link the CSS and JS files to HTML. after that paste, the HTML code in index.html, and paste the CSS code in style.css at last paste the Javascript code in Script.js that’s all after pasting the code.

At first, you have to create an HTML file with the named index.html and paste the below HTML code on it and save it. Remember to give a .html extension to the HTML file.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <title>Animated Navigation</title>
    <nav class="active" id="nav">
        <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Works</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
      <button class="icon" id="toggle">
        <div class="line line1"></div>
        <div class="line line2"></div>
    <script src="script.js"></script>
    <!-- Dribbble link: -->

After pasting the HTML code, Now have to create a second CSS file with the named style.css. Paste the below code on it and save it. Again remember to give .css extension to CSS file.

@import url('');
* {
  box-sizing: border-box;
body {
  background-color: #eafbff;
  background-image: linear-gradient(
    to bottom,
    #eafbff 0%,
    #eafbff 50%,
    #5290f9 50%,
    #5290f9 100%
  font-family: 'Muli', sans-serif;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  height: 100vh;
  margin: 0;
nav {
  background-color: #fff;
  padding: 20px;
  width: 80px;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  border-radius: 3px;
  box-shadow: 0 2px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3);
  transition: width 0.6s linear;
  overflow-x: hidden;
} {
  width: 350px;
nav ul {
  display: flex;
  list-style-type: none;
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  width: 0;
  transition: width 0.6s linear;
} ul {
  width: 100%;
nav ul li {
  transform: rotateY(0deg);
  opacity: 0;
  transition: transform 0.6s linear, opacity 0.6s linear;
} ul li {
  opacity: 1;
  transform: rotateY(360deg);
nav ul a {
  position: relative;
  color: #000;
  text-decoration: none;
  margin: 0 10px;
.icon {
  background-color: #fff;
  border: 0;
  cursor: pointer;
  padding: 0;
  position: relative;
  height: 30px;
  width: 30px;
.icon:focus {
  outline: 0;
.icon .line {
  background-color: #5290f9;
  height: 2px;
  width: 20px;
  position: absolute;
  top: 10px;
  left: 5px;
  transition: transform 0.6s linear;
.icon .line2 {
  top: auto;
  bottom: 10px;
} .icon .line1 {
  transform: rotate(-765deg) translateY(5.5px);
} .icon .line2 {
  transform: rotate(765deg) translateY(-5.5px);

At last, you have to create a Javascript file with the named script.js and paste the Js code on it and save it again don’t forget to give the .js extension to the Javascript file.

const toggle = document.getElementById('toggle')
const nav = document.getElementById('nav')
toggle.addEventListener('click', () => nav.classList.toggle('active'))

That’s all after pasting the code now your code will be successfully run. If you get any kind of error/problem in the code just comment down or contact me
