A tiny script that makes use of jQuery and GSAP libraries to create a fancy kinetic animation effect on any text when clicking.

How to use it:

1. Import necessary JavaScript and Stylesheet:

import _ from "lodash";
import "reset-css";
import "./styles/style.scss";
import { gsap } from "gsap";
import $ from "jquery";

2. The HTML structure:

<div class="effect__wrapper">
  <div class="effect-kinetic" id="effect-kinetic">
    <div class="effect-kinetic__item effect-kinetic__item--black">
      jQueryScript
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

3. The necessary CSS styles:

.effect__wrapper {
  display: -webkit-box;
  display: -ms-flexbox;
  display: flex;
  -webkit-box-pack: center;
  -ms-flex-pack: center;
  justify-content: center;
  -webkit-box-align: center;
  -ms-flex-align: center;
  align-items: center;
  width: 100vw;
  height: 100vh;
}
.effect-kinetic {
  position: relative;
  display: -webkit-box;
  display: -ms-flexbox;
  display: flex;
  width: 100%;
  -webkit-box-pack: center;
  -ms-flex-pack: center;
  justify-content: center;
  -webkit-box-align: center;
  -ms-flex-align: center;
  align-items: center;
  cursor: pointer;
}
.effect-kinetic__item {
  font-family: "arial";
  font-size: 8vw;
  font-weight: 700;
  -webkit-transform-origin: center center;
  transform-origin: center center;
  position: absolute;
}
.effect-kinetic__item--black:nth-child(1) {
  color: #000;
  z-index: 12;
}
.effect-kinetic__item--white:nth-child(1) {
  color: #fff;
  z-index: 12;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(2) {
  color: #fbeb62;
  z-index: 11;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(3) {
  color: #fb9363;
  z-index: 10;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(4) {
  color: #fb5b5b;
  z-index: 9;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(5) {
  color: #fb527b;
  z-index: 8;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(6) {
  color: #fc52db;
  z-index: 7;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(7) {
  color: #d35bfb;
  z-index: 6;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(8) {
  color: #7353fa;
  z-index: 5;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(9) {
  color: #5473fb;
  z-index: 4;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(10) {
  color: #6cebfb;
  z-index: 3;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(11) {
  color: #6afbf3;
  z-index: 2;
}
.effect-kinetic__item:nth-child(12) {
  color: #7cfb8b;
  z-index: 1;
}

4. The core JavaScript (jQuery script) to enable the Kinetic Effect.

$(".effect-kinetic").each(function (index) {
  for (let i = 1; i < 12; i++) {
    var cloned = $(this).find(">:first-child").clone();
    $(this).append(cloned);
  }
  $(this).on("click", function () {
    var tl = gsap.timeline();
    tl.staggerTo(".effect-kinetic__item", 0.4, { rotation: "-3" }, 0.03, 0.7);
    tl.staggerTo(".effect-kinetic__item", 0.5, { rotation: 3 }, 0.03, 1.1);
    tl.staggerTo(".effect-kinetic__item", 0.5, { rotation: 0 }, 0.03, 1.6);
  });
});
