Material Design Wave-like Animation On Click - jQuery Ripple.js

Ripple.js is a jQuery plugin that adds a customizable stunning ripple click effect, which is a visual technique commonly used in Material design, to elements on your website or web application.

It creates a ripple-like animation that emanates from the point where the user clicks on an element, simulating the effect of a water droplet hitting the surface of a pond. Typically used in clickable elements (like buttons and links) to provide visual feedback to the user, indicating that their interaction with the element has been registered.
