jQuery stars plugin

I was asked to replicate a “star” effect, where stars appear in various areas around a page and then disappear after a while. I won’t bother linking to the original site as it will be gone shortly, but this is what I came up with:

demo

To use this on your own site, simply download the script, link to it in your page, then add this piece of JavaScript.

$('body').stars();

If you want to use the star image I created, download it to the same directory and tell the plugin where it is:

$('body').stars({
  "i":"stars.png"
});
