Build a responsive Javascript nav menu

Responsive web design (RWD) has had an enormous impact on how our industry develops websites and applications for different devices. Everywhere we look there are new techniques, tools, and thoughts on the subject. RWD provides us with the tools we need to create awesome experiences for the multitude of devices that our users have.

Ethan Marcotte's original article outlines the three core pieces of a responsive design: fluid grids, flexible images and media queries. While JavaScript isn't one of these foundations of RWD, it does allow developers to enhance interactions and create richer experiences for users. Many people (myself included) would argue that our content should be available to users without JavaScript enabled. This is where we tread a fine line between using JavaScript to make our websites more usable and hiding content behind a JS wall.
