In this project, we have created a sidebar menu with nice hover animation. We have also included a font-awesome icon before each nav links so that the navbar looks better than the traditional sidebar menu. On the right side of the sidebar menu, there will be the primary content of the website. In our case, it will be the homepage. You can add a background image if you want.

In this Program [ Simple Sidebar Menu using HTML and CSS ], at first, we have taken a nav element with an unordered list for the side nav. The first li element is used to make the logo of the snippet. We named it 'logo' and placed a logo image inside it. For the rest of the li element, we have added a unique font-awesome icon and the related nav items. For creating the primary content on the right side of the side nav, we have taken another div named 'wrapper' and placed a header h2 tag there. The primary font family of the snippet is Montserrat but you can take any font of your choice from google fonts. First, We have eliminated the default margin and padding of the snippet. Then we set a background color for the body element. To make the navbar fixed to the right side of the project, we have given the ul element a fixed position value. We also gave it a width of 260px, a height of 100%, and a top-left value. For creating the hover animation, we have taken the pseudo-class of the  'a' element and gave it position absolute value. Apart from that, we set the width of the element to zero but, for the hover state, we set the width to 95%.
