Coding the Mouse Particle Effect from Mark Appleby’s Website

Learn how to create the mouse particle effect from Mark Appleby’s website in this ALL YOUR HTML episode.

Editor’s note: We want to share more of the web dev and design community directly here on Codrops, so we’re very happy to start featuring Yuriy’s newest live coding sessions plus the demo!

In this episode of ALL YOUR HTML, I decompile the particles effect from Mark Appleby’s website and show you how you can create a particle system from scratch, using no libraries at all. I also address some performance tips, and ideas about SDF in the 2D world.

This coding session was streamed live on Oct 11, 2020.

Check out the live demo.
