Shape up your website with CSS clip-paths!

Clippy is a tool for generating values for shape functions for the new and cool CSS clip-path property. The property accepts several basic shapes that will be able to create with Clippy and their current implementation status:

  • circle() Currently disabled, still buggy when using a ratio that's not 1:1.
  • ellipse() Improved, handles now switch to best side.
  • polygon() Includes common preset shapes plus the ability to create a custom shape
  • inset() Improved, now supports radius value


  • Utilizes draggabilly.js for the handles which each correspond to a point for CSS clip path. Works really well on touch devices, especially with the touch-action: none.
  • For development, using Grunt with SCSS, autoprefixer, uncss, minification for CSS, HTML, and javascript.
  • Material-ish design inspiration.
  • Mobile-first design, making things work great on mobile touch devices first and working responsively upwards from there.
