        <li>menu item</li>
        <li>menu item</li>
        <li>menu item</li>
        <li>menu item</li>
    </ul>
</nav>

Options

initClass:                  "js-priorityNav", // Class that will be printed on html element to allow conditional css styling.
mainNavWrapper:             "nav", // mainnav wrapper selector (must be direct parent from mainNav)
mainNav:                    "ul", // mainnav selector. (must be inline-block)
navDropdownClassName:       "nav__dropdown", // class used for the dropdown - this is a class name, not a selector.
navDropdownToggleClassName: "nav__dropdown-toggle", // class used for the dropdown toggle - this is a class name, not a selector.
navDropdownLabel:           "more", // Text that is used for the dropdown toggle.
navDropdownBreakpointLabel: "menu", //button label for navDropdownToggle when the breakPoint is reached.
breakPoint:                 500, //amount of pixels when all menu items should be moved to dropdown to simulate a mobile menu
throttleDelay:              50, // this will throttle the calculating logic on resize because i'm a responsible dev.
offsetPixels:               0, // increase to decrease the time it takes to move an item.
count:                      true, // prints the amount of items are moved to the attribute data-count to style with css counter.

//Callbacks
moved: function () {}, // executed when item is moved to dropdown
movedBack: function () {} // executed when item is moved back to main menu
