A very small jQuery plugin to show CSS3 animated popover messages on any DOM elements when clicked on or hovered over.

How to use it:

1. Add the required stylesheet into the head section of your html document.

<link href="dist/jquery-popover.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Add the jQuery popover plugin's script to the page, after you've added jQuery.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="dist/jquery-popover-0.0.3.js"></script>

3. Create a popover triggered by a normal link. Make sure the data-target attribute matches up to the CSS class on the popover content DIV below.

<span class="popover-wrapper">
  <a href="#" data-role="popover" data-target="popover-target">Click Me</a>
  <div class="popover-modal popover-target">
    <div class="popover-body">
      <!-- contents here -->
    </div>
  </div>
</span>

3. Initialize the popover plugin.

$('[data-role="popover"]').popover();

4. That's it. You can add the CSS class '.right' to the popover wrapper to make it right aligned.

<span class="popover-wrapper right">

5. Optionally, you can also display a close link inside the popover by adding the data-toggle-role="close" attribute like so:

<span class="popover-wrapper">
  <a href="#" data-role="popover" data-target="popover-target">Click Me</a>
  <div class="popover-modal popover-target">
    <div class="popover-header">Title
      <a href="#" data-toggle-role="close" style="float: right">×</a>
    </div>
    <div class="popover-body popover-body-padded">
      <div>Hi</div>
    </div>
  </div>
</span>

6. Change the trigger event to 'hover'. It means the popover is triggered by mouse hover instead.

$('[data-role="popover"]').popover({
   trigger: 'hover' // click | hover
});
