A CSS Hint Library Just for Your Awesome Websites


hint.css is written as a pure CSS resource with which you can create great accessible tooltips for your web application. It is not based on JavaScript but rather uses the aria-label / data-attribute * attribute, pseudo-elements, content property, and CSS3 transitions to generate tooltips. Also, the BEM naming convention is used, especially for modifiers.
