JavaScript Library For Mouse Follow Tooltips – mousetip.js


mousetip.js is a lightweight, CSS-less JavaScript library used to create tooltips that always follows your cursor.

How to use it:


$ npm install purejs-mousetip --save

Just place the mousetip.js scrip at the end of the html file and you’re ready to go.

<script src="src/mousetip.js"></script>

Initialize the mousetip.js.

let mouseTip = new MouseTip();

Add the CSS class ‘mousetip’ to target element and define the tooltip content using ‘mousetip-msg’ attribute as follows:

<div class="el" mousetip mousetip-msg="I'm a tooltip"></div>

Available options. All the following options can be passed via ‘mousetip-*’ attributes without any JS call.

  • mousetip-pos=”bottom right”: bottom, center, top, right, center, left
  • mousetip-css-zindex=”9999″: CSS z-index property
  • mousetip-css-position=”absolute”: CSS position property
  • mousetip-css-padding=”15px”: padding
  • moutstip-css-borderradius=”4px”: border radius
  • mousetip-css-background=”rgba(0,0,0,0.75)”: background color
  • mousetip-css-color=”#fff”: text color
  • mousetip-enable-html: enable HTML content
<div class="el" mousetip 
     mousetip-msg="I'm a tooltip"
     mousetip-pos="bottom right"

You can also config the tooltip in the JavaScript.

let mouseTip : new MouseTip({
    cssZIndex        : '9999',
    cssPosition      : 'absolute',
    cssPadding       : '15px',
    cssBorderRadius  : '4px',
    cssBackground    : 'rgba(0,0,0,0.75)',
    cssColor         : '#fff',
    html             : true,
    position         : 'bottom right',
    selector         : 'mousetip',
    stylesheet       : false
