Feature request: Show side nav on larger displays option

When using node-red-dashboard as a frontend for my house on a tablet it would be nice to be able to always show the side nav when there is room on the screen.
Like the first sample here https://material.angularjs.org/latest/demo/sidenav

Or have a option to have it on top as a side scrolling horizontal top bar.

Both options should only be active in wide enough screens.

Is this something others might be interested in?

Being able to lock the side menu open is not a bad idea. Not sure I'd use it, but that's not the point :slight_smile:

Anyone willing to implement that option?

I nominate @svefro :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

@dceejay is ahead of you - https://github.com/node-red/node-red-dashboard/commit/b6d22e4c5c1adffe44d8599e5984fcf4c875cb56

Really appreciate it Dave :slight_smile:
i'm not familiar enough with the code-base to make those kind of changes myself.

Any idea when the next version is released?

Maybe later this week/end - just checking out some audio updates from this thread. Node red dashboard audio wish

Also while we're talking about the side nav, would it be possible to change its width via the dasboard site menu ? Long tab names tend to look bad in 200px.

made it more auto sizing up to 350px - and made multiple lines more nicely spaced.

Auto-sizing with multiline is even better! Greatly appreciated!
