Waves is a click effect tool inspired by Google’s Material Design. The plugin adds a simple wave (or ripple) to buttons and other user interface elements to show users that they have clicked the item.

The action event tool works with jQuery and Javascript event handlers such as Snarl.

You can get Waves pretty easily. Just download the file and install with Bower or NPM. Include the CSS and Javascript and its ready to use. For more advanced developers, the file is also available via LESS, SCSS, and SASS source.

Once Waves is installed, you can adjust a couple of simple parameters if you like and initialize the plugin. Waves works with all modern browsers including Internet Explorer 10+, Chrome 14+, Firefox 9+, Safari 5.1+, Opera 11.6+, iOS 6+, Windows Phone 8.1 and Android Browser 4+.
