🤙 Nextcloud app / Custom menu 🎨

Build Status Translations Downloads

Allows you to modify the position of the main menu by creating a panel on the left of the interface or with a big menu on the top. You can also add and sort custom categories, define apps that must be displayed in the top menu, etc. Fully customisable.

This application is rather suitable for instances that activate a lot of applications.

You can customize colors depending of the theme (Dark theme and Breeze Dark).

  • PHP >= 8.0
  • App theming enabled

Installation and upgrade

Custom menu is available from the app store.

$ cd /path/to/nextcloud
$ php occ app:install side_menu

If you want to install it from source, go to and copy the link to the last release (side_menu_vX.Y.Z.tar.gz). Then:

$ cd /path/to/nextcloud/apps
$ curl -sS | tar xvfz -

Administrators can edit many settings using the administration page.

Users can disable the menu using the page of personal settings.

Use the shortcut Ctrl+o to open and to hide the side menu. Use tab to navigate.

Use first top menu app as default app

You can easily let Custom Menu redirect to the first app in the top menu by changing the following parameter in your config/config.php:

'defaultapp' => 'side_menu',

If the top menu is empty then it redirects to files.
