I’ve built a simple tool that generates the CSS required to use emojis as cursors.
Doesn’t this exist already?
Sort of. Other solutions currently out there are either using:
- Pre-generated image files, or
There are pros and cons to both.
Pre-generated image files are the most consistent and have the largest cross browser support, but they require more preparation a head of time to create the image files and the emoji style used may not be consistent with the users system and familiarity.
What’s the new technique?
The largest downside to this technique is lack of browser support. No IE or Edge.
