Create Movable Blur Masks Using jQuery and Canvas - Blur.js

Blur.js is a jQuery plugin which makes use of jQuery UI draggable and canvas 2D api to create a movable blur mask over a given element. Similar to the background blur effect on Apple's iOS devices. Heavily based on Stack Blur algorithm.

How to use it:

1. Load jQuery library and the jQuery blur.js script in the html page.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="blur.js"></script>

2. Load jQuery UI for draggable functionality.

<script src="jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

3. Create a DIV element for the blur mask.

<div class="demo"></div>

3. Call the function to generate a blur mask.
