React Cursors

Collection of highly customizable cursors for react!

Currently we have a few cursors ready for you to use, you may also customize them to your liking and contribute to this repo ✨

Installation

npm i react-cursors

Usage

Import the component

import { CircleCursor } from 'react-cursors'

Use it

<CircleCursor 
        safeBoundaryX="1000"
        safeBoundaryY="700"
        initial={{
                dotSize:"2rem",
                circleSize:"5rem",
                borderStyle:"dotted",
                color:"white",
                borderWidth:"3px",
                circleDay:"0.1s",
                dotDelay:"0.05s"
        }}

        hover={{
                dotSize:"0rem",
                circleSize:"10rem",
                borderStyle:"dotted",
                color:"white",
                borderWidth:"3px",
                circleDay:"0.1s",
                dotDelay:"0.05s"
        }}
/>

Props provided in the initial will be the initial styles of the cursor, and the props provided in the hover will be the styles of cursor when the cursor hovers over an element with class ‘hover-detect’.

If you want to use default styling, or no hover elements then you will have to keep the component as :

<CircleCursor initial={{}} hover={{}} />

Further, it is always recommeded to use lazy loading while importing the component, to avoid any DOM related problems.

Problems faced without lazy loading can lead to bugs like, hover styles not getting activated when cursors hovers over elements having class ‘hover-detect’


import React, { Suspense } from "react"; // we also need to import suspense

const CircleCursor = React.lazy(() => import('react-cursors').then(module => ({ default: module.CircleCursor }))) ;

And using it like :

     <div> 
          <Components />
          <Suspense fallback={<div>Loading ... </div>}>
            <CircleCursor initial={{circleSize:'30px',dotSize:'6px',color:'white'}} hover={{circleSize:'50px',dotSize:'0px',color:'white'}}/>
          </Suspense> 
      </div>
