A fancy, direction-aware, ripple-style hover effect that appears depending on the direction your mouse enters into the element.

Ideal for creating an interactive call to action button using a little bit of JavaScript and CSS/CSS3.

How to use it:

1. Create a call to action button where you want to apply the ripple hover effect.

<div class="action-button">
  <a href="#">
    <span></span> 
    Button Hover Effect
  </a>
</div>

2. The example CSS for the button.

.read-more > a {
  border: 2px solid rgb(0, 119, 255);
  color: rgb(0, 119, 255);
  display: inline-block;
  font-size: 1.8rem;
  overflow: hidden;
  padding: 10px 30px;
  position: relative;
  text-transform: uppercase;
  -webkit-transition: 0.5s linear;
  -moz-transition: 0.5s linear;
  -ms-transition: 0.5s linear;
  -o-transition: 0.5s linear;
  transition: 0.5s linear;
}

.read-more > a:hover {
  color: #ffffff;
}

3. Apply CSS styles to the ripple hover effect.

.read-more > a > span {
  background-color: rgb(0, 119, 255);
  -webkit-border-radius: 50%;
  -moz-border-radius: 50%;
  -ms-border-radius: 50%;
  -o-border-radius: 50%;
  border-radius: 50%;
  color: #ffffff;
  display: block;
  height: 0;
  position: absolute;
  -webkit-transform: translate(-50%,-50%);
  -moz-transform: translate(-50%,-50%);
  -ms-transform: translate(-50%,-50%);
  -o-transform: translate(-50%,-50%);
  transform: translate(-50%,-50%);
  -webkit-transition: height 1s, width 1s;
  -moz-transition: height 1s, width 1s;
  -ms-transition: height 1s, width 1s;
  -o-transition: height 1s, width 1s;
  transition: height 1s, width 1s;
  width: 0;
  z-index: -1;
}

.read-more > a:hover > span {
  height: 700px;
  width: 700px;
}

4. Load the latest version of jQuery library (slim build) at the bottom of the HTML page.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>

5. The JavaScript (jQuery script) to track the mouseenter event and apply the ripple effect to the button.

$(function() {
  $(".action-button > a").on('mouseenter', function(e) {
    x = e.pageX - $(this).offset().left;
    y = e.pageY - $(this).offset().top;
    $(this).find("span").css({
      top: y,
      left: x
    });
  });
  $(".action-button > a").on('mouseout', function(e) {
    x = e.pageX - $(this).offset().left;
    y = e.pageY - $(this).offset().top;
    $(this).find("span").css({
      top: y,
      left: x
    });
  });
});
