Putting Javascript Snowing Effect on Your Site

Posted · Category: Information, License Free

Would you like to put snowing effect on your site? Snowstorm is a Javascript-driven snow effect that can be easily implemented into web pages. It is free for use. It has been designed to be easy to use.

A single Javascript file provides the functionality required; the only other files needed are the images of snowflakes themselves. You can adjust the snow speed, the amount of snow, the “wind”, if and where it should collect (and if it should build up over time, or quickly “melt”), and finally, whether the snow can react to the mouse moving (ie., “wind changes.”).

Snowstorm works under most of the current major browsers (IE 5.x+, Netscape 6+). Testing has been limited to those browsers on PC/Mac. You can check out the demo here.

  • That script is pretty cool, I like how the snow follows the mouse in direction the falling snow to the movement of the mouse.

    I use Snow and More on my personal blog TheFrosty. It’s up right now, check it out. Not as cool effects…

    But you can add custom graphics like I have, besides the snow.

    Sorry for the bad timing… I hope you can find it useful for the next Christmas. :P

  • I’ve been using this script on my site for about a week now. I didn’t customize the images, but it’s a cool feature. I did find it to be a little quirky on some browsers(snow moved with mouse on some and not others). Otherwise good.

    Here is a nice jQuery snowing effect:
    Very simple to recreate
