JavaScript Library to Realistic Water Ripple Effect Using WebGL

Ripple Hover Effect is a JavaScript library applicable to realistic water ripple effects to move images using WebGL.

How to make use of it:

1. Load the needed JavaScript libraries as follows:

<!-- Three.js -->
<script src="/path/to/cdn/three.min.js"></script>

<!-- GSAP -->
<script src="/path/to/cdn/gsap.min.js"></script>

<!-- ripple-effect.js -->
<script src="src/ripple-effect.min.js"></script>

2. Create a container to hold the picture.

<div class="example"></div>

3. Apply a primary ripple effect to the picture.

var rippleDemo = new RippleEffect({
    parent: document.querySelector('.example'),      
    texture: '/path/to/image.jpg',

4. Config the ripple effect with the next parameters:

var rippleDemo = new RippleEffect({
    parent: document.querySelector('.example'),      
    texture: '/path/to/image.jpg',
    intensity: 1,
    strength: 2,
    area: 6,
    waveSpeed: 0.01,
    hover: true, // trigger the animation on hover
    speedIn: 1.4,
    speedOut: 1.2,
    easing: 'Expo.easeOut',

5. Start & Stop the animation manually.
