10+ Flashlight Effect using HTML CSS (Free Code)

In this article I have given 10 best Flashlight Effect HTML CSS examples. Every flashlight effect design here is very beautiful. Some designs are made with only html and css. Some designs use JavaScript and jQuery.

The “flashlight effect” is a visual effect that simulates a flashlight shining on a webpage. It is typically achieved by creating a semi-transparent overlay on the page, and then using CSS to create a spotlight-like effect on the overlay, usually by adding a radial gradient or a mask.

The CSS properties used to create the effect may include background-image, background-position, background-size, background-repeat, mask-image, and mask-size. It can be implemented using HTML and CSS, JavaScript and other programming languages.

1. Flashlight Effect With Javascript

This is a simple Flashlight Effect made with Javascript. Here html css and javascript are used. First the basic area is created using html. Then background color and basic effects are added by css. Finally, this flashlight effect is activated by JavaScript.

Here an image is used in the background. When you hover the mouse over that image, you will see a spotlight-like effect at that place.

2. Flashlight Effect with SVG

This Flashlight Effect is created by svg. Here html and css are used. No JavaScript is used. So if you want to create a flashlight effect without javascript then you can use this design. Very little code is used here due to using svg.

6. CSS Flashlight Mouse Pointer

You can create a flashlight mouse pointer using CSS by creating a div element and setting its background color and size to match the appearance of a flashlight beam. Then, you can use the :hover pseudo-class to apply a CSS animation that makes the beam appear to shine on hover. All the codes used in this Flashlight Effect are very simple. You can understand it even if you have little knowledge of coding.

7. Mousemove flashlight effect

This Mousemove flashlight effect is made very differently. If you are looking for a different kind of flashlight effect then this design will be your choice. You can create a flashlight effect that follows the mouse cursor using CSS and JavaScript.

First, create a div element for the flashlight beam and set its initial position to be the center of the screen using CSS. Then, using JavaScript or jQuery, you can listen for the mousemove event and update the position of the flashlight beam div to match the current mouse coordinates.
