HTML5 Facebook Style Sliding Menu Using Twitter Bootstrap Collapse

Ever since Facebook, and other “super” apps started to implement a side menu that slides out for their main navigation, this pattern has pretty much turned into the standard for any application that has a lot of content and a complex navigation stack.
