How to create waves on button with CSS and HTML?
  • Last Updated : 21 Jun, 2020

The wave effect on a button is a type of effect in which the shape of the button turns into a wave on hovering. While there are other ways to create a wave effect, a simple method is to use the keyframe property.

Approach: In order to animate the button, we use keyframe to gradually set the transitions at different stages.
HTML Code:
The HTML code is a simple structure that contains a wrapper where the span tag is wrapped inside the anchor tag.

  • Now use keyframes to animate each frame according to their angle by using the transform property.
