The given below code is having the onhover ripple effect applied on the button.

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>Ripple effect on button</title>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="" integrity="sha384-DmABxgPhJN5jlTwituIyzIUk6oqyzf3+XuP7q3VfcWA2unxgim7OSSZKKf0KSsnh" crossorigin="anonymous">
                display: block;
                margin: auto;
                height: 50px;
                width: 50px;
                font-size: 32px;
                text-align: center;
                padding: 8px 0;
                background-color: #1a237e;
                color: #fff;
                border: none;
                border-radius: 100%;
                content: '';
                height: 50px;
                top: -45px;
                position: relative;
                border-radius: 50%;
                display: block;
                background-color: #1a237e;
                z-index: -1;
                -webkit-animation: ripple 1.5s ease-out;
                -moz-animation: ripple 1.5s ease-out;
                -ms-animation: ripple 1.5s ease-out;
                -o-animation: ripple 1.5s ease-out;
                animation: ripple 1.5s ease-out;
            @keyframes ripple{
                width: 50px;
                height: 50px;
                opacity: 1;
                transform: translate(0px, 0px);
                width: 100px;
                height: 100px;
                opacity: 0;
                transform: translate(-25px, -25px);

        <button class="ripple"><i class="fa fa-plus"></i></button>


  • In the above HTML code, we create a class called ripple and applied it to the button.
  • Next, we create an after element via CSS for ripple class to create a ripple effect container.
  • Finally, we create an animation for the ripple effect also called ripple and put it as hover in ripple class.

I hope you found this post informative.
