Snow 1.3.4

   (8 reviews)

5 Screenshots

The Snow plugin adds a festive, wintry touch to any IPS4 website with configurable JavaScript-driven snow.


  1. Snow that gently falls and gathers, with wind speed and direction determined by the mouse X position.
  2. Settings provided include:
    1. Number of snow particles on screen and active ("falling") at any time
    2. Configurable Animation tick rate
    3. Snow Color (with color picker)
    4. Snow by default is in the header, but can be configured to be in any HTML element ID, or within the document body.
    5. Snow "floor" can be set in pixels (the absolute pixel value at which the snow stops falling or sticks)
    6. Stickiness of snow (does it stick to the bottom of the window/element or not?)
    7. Twinkle effect - snow fades in and out as it goes down the screen
    8. Optional support for mobile devices (will be cruel to their CPU and battery!)

Enjoy what is perhaps the second most useless plugin ever developed for IPS4! :D

Original BSD-licensed code for snowstorm provided by Scott Schiller (2007).

WARNING: Will slow down browsers. As the JavaScript implementing this functionality is not mine, only critical IPS-breaking issues will be fixed. What you see is what you get, take it or leave it.

Fantastic plugin with tons of options. Would be even better if the Element IDs could be comma separated (i.e. ipsLayout_header, ipsLayout_body) to allow for multiple elements. Great work!

Very nice. Thank you :)

Would be even nicer if snowflakes looked more like snowflakes :)

That feature's been added! You can select any custom Unicode character to use, including ❄ . Enjoy!
