Ionic navigation drawer


I am using Ionic to develop my hybrid app. One of the thing I concern the most is the sidemenu. As Ionic is pushing the whole content to show the side menu, when the content is heavy the animation will become “choppy”. So, I am thinking instead of having the whole content moving, but only move the side menu. This way I believe the animation will be much smoother.

How can I do that with Ionic? Is there any ready 3rd party plugin?
