Just another jQuery tooltip plugin which helps you attach clean looking tooltips to any DOM elements using HTML5 data attributes.

How to use it:

1. Include the CSS file tip.css in the header of the webpage that will provide the default CSS styles for the tooltips.

<link href="tip.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Include jQuery library and the main JavaScript file tip.js at the bottom of the webpage.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="tip.js"></script>

3. Initialize the tooltip plugin.


4. Add the CSS class 'tip' to the target element and define the tooltip content using the data-tip attribute as follow:

<button class="tip" data-tip="show me the money">Hover me</button>

5. Customize the position of your tooltip using the data-position attribute:

<button class="tip" data-position="bottom-center" data-tip="show me the money">Hover me</button>

6. You can also customize the tooltip plugin in the javascript during init.


  // CSS selector of target element

  // custom position
  position: "left",
