jQuery Plugin To Create Definition Popups - Define

Define is a small jQuery plugin that adds underlines to the pre-defined terms with 'question mark' cursor and displays the definition popups when hovered over.

How to use it:

1. Include the required jquery.define.css file in the head section of your web page.

<link href="css/jquery.define.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Include jQuery library and the jQuery define plugin's script at the bottom of the web page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.define.js"></script>

3. Define a list of terms (words) with definitions using JS array object.

var $words = [
  word: "jQuery",
  definition: "The Write Less, Do More, JavaScript Library."
}, {
  word: "Html5",
  definition: "HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the Internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web."
}, {
  word: "Ruby",

4. Call the plugin on the Selector to active the definition popups.

$('SELECTOR').definitions( {
  term : $words
