Cursor Position Exposed via CSS Variables

Cursory is a CSS reprocessor that makes the following JS values available as CSS variables:

These can be used as CSS variables with the following names:

These variables are updated at the following events:

In addition, the --clicked variable is changed from 0 to 1 between the mousedown and touchstart events and the corresponding mouseup or touchend events.

To run Cursory whenever you want, use the cursory() function in JS.

This allows you to use the var(--clicked) ratio as a 1 or 0 in your CSS calc() functions, or as a value for opacity:; fairly easily.

To run Cursory whenever you want, use the cursory.load() function in JS.

To make an element like div follow the cursor position when using cursory, use CSS with variables like this:

div {
  width: 10px;
  height: 10px;
  position: fixed;
  background: black;
  top: calc(var(--cursorY) * 1px);
  left: calc(var(--cursorX) * 1px);
}
