How to add particle effects in WordPress Website

Recently I created a website for my Fiverr client, I am using Divi theme for this project and client ask me to add nice particle effects on website header, so google it and find vincentgarreau.com is an open-source library providing js code, which can allow me to add the nice particle effect on the background.

I have this on my client website Klbproduction and he really likes it, so many of my friends ask me how to add this effect in there website so I think why not create a guide for you, here are the few steps you need to follow to add these nice effects in your website section.

How to integrate the js library to your WordPress website
