Frosty.js is a lightweight, flexible and extensible jQuery tooltip plugin that supports smart position, custom trigger event, arrow indicator, HTML/Text content and much more.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery Frosty.js plugin's stylesheet in the header, and the JavaScript file frosty.min.js after jQuery library like this:

<link href="dist/css/frosty.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="dist/js/frosty.min.js"></script>

2. Initialize the tooltip plugin with default options.

$('.has-tip').frosty();

3. By default, the plugin uses element's title attribute to hold your tooltip content.

<span class="has-tip" title="Tooltip Here">Hover Me</span>

4. You can override the default attribute in the JavaScript as this:

$('.has-tip').frosty({
  attribute: 'title'
});

5. If you'd like to show the tooltip on click:

$('.has-tip').frosty({
  trigger: 'click'
});

6. Change the default position of your tooltips.

$('.has-tip').frosty({
  position: 'top'
});

7. The plugin has the ability to auto-reposition when the tooltip is overflowing off the screen. You might need to turn off it in some situations:

$('.has-tip').frosty({
  smartReposition: false
});

8. More configuration options:

$('.has-tip').frosty({
  classes: 'tip',
  content: '',
  delay: 0,
  hasArrow: true,
  html: false,
  offset: 10,
  removeTitle: true,
  selector: false
});

9. You can use the following script to unbind events and remove the tooltips. Useful for cleanup in single page applications.

$('.has-tip').frosty('destroy')
