RippleButton

React, Components, State, Effect

Renders a button that animates a ripple effect when clicked.

  • Use the useState() hook to create the coords and isRippling state variables for the pointer's coordinates and the animation state of the button respectively.
  • Use a useEffect() hook to change the value of isRippling every time the coords state variable changes, starting the animation.
  • Use setTimeout() in the previous hook to clear the animation after it's done playing.
  • Use a useEffect() hook to reset coords whenever the isRippling state variable is false.
  • Handle the onClick event by updating the coords state variable and calling the passed callback.
