Clippy.JS

Add Clippy or his friends to any website for instant nostalgia.
Read more about the project on our homepage.

Usage: Setup

Add this code to you to your page to enable Clippy.js.

<!-- Add the stylesheet to the head -->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="clippy.css" media="all">

...

<!-- Add these scripts to  the bottom of the page -->
<!-- jQuery 1.7+ -->
<script src="jquery.1.7.min.js"></script>

<!-- Clippy.js -->
<script src="clippy.min.js"></script>

<!-- Init script -->
<script type="text/javascript">
    clippy.load('Merlin', function(agent){
        // do anything with the loaded agent
        agent.show();
    });
</script>

Usage: Actions

All the agent actions are queued and executed by order, so you could stack them.

// play a given animation
agent.play('Searching');

// play a random animation
agent.animate();

// get a list of all the animations
agent.animations();
// => ["MoveLeft", "Congratulate", "Hide", "Pleased", "Acknowledge", ...]

// Show text balloon
agent.speak('When all else fails, bind some paper together. My name is Clippy.');

// move to the given point, use animation if available
agent.moveTo(100,100);

// gesture at a given point (if gesture animation is available)
agent.gestureAt(200,200);

// stop the current action in the queue
agent.stopCurrent();

// stop all actions in the queue and go back to idle mode
agent.stop();
