jQuery accordion menus are menus that act like a musical accordion, with regards to their ability to expand and contract based on user interactions. This helps display additional information for the active menu items, while hiding non-relevant information from the user. Additionally, it can help add more content without sacrificing white space, leading to more usable and attractive user interface design.

function

Accordion({options})
Main function call that requires few options:

Options

accordion Boolean
If you set this value to "true" the menu behaves itself as an accordion menu. The irrelevant menu items are closed while the relevant slides open. The accordion feature can be disabled when the "accordion" parameter is set to false. Then the menu behaves like a simple jquery vertical drop down menu

speed Integer
The toggle speed to open or close a menu item

closeSign text or html
Text placed inside a span element to indicate a closed menu with child levels

openSign text or html
Text placed inside a span element to indicate a opened menu with child levels
