jQuery Plugin For HTML5 Canvas Based Scratchcard - ScratchIt

ScratchIt is a jQuery plugin used to create an Html5 canvas based scratchcard which allows you reveal concealed html elements by scratching off the opaque covering.

How to use it:

1. Include jQuery library and the jQuery scratchit plugin at the bottom of the web page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/scratchit.css">
<script src="src/scratchit.js"></script>

2. Create a scratchcard following the markup structure like this:

<div class="scratchit">
  <img src="src/scratcher.jpg" width="400" height="200">
  <img src="src/element.jpg" width="400" height="200">
  <canvas width="400" height="200"></canvas>

3. Initialize the plugin and we're done.

var $scratchit = $('.scratchit').scratchIt();

Change logs:


  • Accomodate IE's image onload event quirkiness


  • refactor some code, throttle mousemove updates


  • Intelligently work with image or solid color
