Link Drawer for RapidWeaver

The folks at the One Little Designer smithy seem to be working overtime. They just released yet another interesting stack. In a similar vein to Action Menu, Link Drawer is a home for your links or menu items. It can be fixed at the top, or the bottom of your page, or it can be placed inline.

Link Drawer – 1LDThe Link Drawer toggle can be as wide as the container that it is enclosed in, or set to a fixed pixel width.
The drawer too! The drawer also allows you to set the number of columns it displays – for Desktop, Tablet and mobile devices. So if you set the drawer to 4 columns wide and then add 8 Drawer Items, you will have a grid with 4 x 2 link items on the desktop.
Each Drawer Item displays an Icon and a text. The Icon can be chosen from FontAwesome, Google Material Icons, or Ion Icons, but if you prefer, you can also add your own icons, i.e. a png, or a jpg image. Sadly SVG's are not (yet?) recognised.

Responsive Hid

As you can see by the list of settings, Link Drawer is highly configurable and I can see many uses for it.
My only 'criticism', if you'd like to call it that, is the lack of support for SVG icons and the inability to alter the toggle Icon.

Otherwise — a great stack!
