What is headroom.js?

Headroom.js is a javascript that functions to hide the header when we scroll down and bring up the header again when scrolling up.

1. Why we need it?

One of the current trends of websites is to use a fixed header to make navigation easier for visitors, but this technique will reduce the width of the reading area (viewport) and may reduce the convenience of mobile devices that have a smaller reading area.

By using headroom javascript, visitors who are reading and usually scroll down. The result is we will have a wider reading area and feel more comfortable

The Digitalizer My ID (Bahasa Indonesia Version) website also uses a headroom java script for the header menu.
