    parent: document.querySelector('.example'),      
    texture: '/path/to/image.jpg',
});

4. Config the ripple effect with the following parameters:

var rippleDemo = new RippleEffect({
    parent: document.querySelector('.example'),      
    texture: '/path/to/image.jpg',
    intensity: 1,
    strength: 2,
    area: 6,
    waveSpeed: 0.01,
    hover: true, // trigger the animation on hover
