Lightweight jQuery Text Truncation & Tooltip Plugin - EllipsisTooltip

Ellipsis Tooltip is a very small jQuery plugin that truncates long text strings to fit on one line, and displays the overflowing text in a tooltip on mouse hover. Dependent on Bootstrap 3 framework.

How to use it:

1. Download the plugin, unzip it, and import the jquery.ellipsisTooltip.js script in your Bootstrap project.

<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.ellipsisTooltip.js"></script>

2. Call the plugin on the text wrapper.


3. You can also use the data-ellipsis="true" attribute on the text wrapper to initialize the plugin automatically.

<h1 data-ellipsis="true">Long Text Here</a>

4. Customization options.

// custom html content to diplay in the tooltip
content: undefined,

// parent container
parent: $ellipsis.parent(),

// parent container width
width: $ellipsis.parent().width(),

// bind window resize event
resize: true,

// the position of the tooltip
placement: "top",

// tooltip's parent container
container: "body",

// tooltip template
template: '<div class="tooltip" role="tooltip"><div class="tooltip-arrow"></div><div class="tooltip-inner" style="max-width: 250px; word-wrap: break-word"></div></div>'
