90's Cursor Effects

"Knowing the codes" used to be all the rage, I want to bring a few back.

A repo of the old effects that inspired creativity and the desire to learn at least a little code around the world. Modernised so they're a little more efficient, and just as annoying (and twice as fun) as they were before. Have a play here.

How to Use

For the most part these scripts are plug and play.

Include the script in your HTML...

<script src="your/path/to/ghostCursor.js"></script>

And then create a new instance of its type in your JavaScript. The script will create the canvas that is used, so nothing else is really needed.

new ghostCursor();

You can also target specific elements, to have the canvas appear inside those, for example:

const targetElement = document.querySelector("#ghost")
new ghostCursor({element: targetElement});

Specific Customization

A few of these have custom options as well (if you are interested in more options, opening an issue or PR is the way to go).

springyEmojiCursor

You can change the emoji in springyEmojiCursor's emoji with the emoji a single string emoji.

new springyEmojiCursor({emoji: "🤷‍♂️"});

fairyDustCursor

You can change the emoji in fairyDustCursor's colors with the colors option (an array of colors)

new fairyDustCursor({colors: ["#ff0000", "#00ff00", "#0000ff"]});

emojiCursor

You can change the emoji in emojiCursor's emoji with the emoji option (a list of emoji)

new emojiCursor({emoji: ["🔥", "🐬", "🦆"]});

NPM

I haven't got around to it yet, but if you'd like to make a rollup that compiles everything all nice, be my guest... otherwise I'll get to it eventually!

License

MIT af, but if you're using the scripts a GitHub sponsorship or shouting me a coffee would always be appreciated :)
