<div class="ham" >
<span class="bar1"></span>
<span class="bar2"></span>
<span class="bar3"></span>
<ul class="nav-sub">
<li class="list-item"><a href="#" class="nav-link">Home</a></li>
<li class="list-item"><a href="#" class="nav-link">Blogs</a></li>
<li class="list-item"><a href="#" class="nav-link">About me</a></li>

In the above code snippet at the top, we’ve declared <nav> tag with the class navbar which will hold all the elements of our header. Let’s split the header into 3 parts for an easier understanding.

There is all the HTML code for the Hamburger Menu javascript. Now, you can see output without CSS, then we write CSS for our Hamburger Menu javascript.
