How to create simple hover effects:

For the development of hover effects at our button, boxes, and images we will use Html and CSS as a language. Then we will use a code editor for writing the code. Let us start it practically.

Download a code editor:

Code Editor provides an environment to write the code. It has built-in functions and libraries. It helps the developer to write error-free code without any syntax errors. It can be sublime text 3, brackets, or visual studio code.

Html source code:

Html is a markup language and we use this language to create the skeleton of the web pages. The buttons skeleton is created with the help of a button tag. It creates a default button for us. This button does not have any design, color, font size, font family, box-shadow, and other things. For the development of these things, we will use CSS.

Create a new file and save it along with the .html extension at the end of the file name. Then copy this code and paste it there into your file.

CSS source code:

It is a markup language and we use this language to design our web pages. CSS have a lot of properties for font, color, shadow, hover effect, animations, etc. These buttons have some hover effects and these are created using the properties of CSS.

Create a new file in your code editor and save it using the extension of .css at the end of the file name. then use the link tag in the HTML file. Link tag will you to connect HTML and CSS files with each other. After the connection between both the files, the properties of CSS will be applied to the HTML code. Copy this code and paste it into your CSS hover effect file.

Download source code:

The source code file is present below. Learners find it difficult to use the code and then create and connect new files with each other. That’s why we have created a file of source code. In this file all the code files are present. Just download and extract the source code files. Source code is available and downloads from the below download button.
