Example:

<span class="r-Tooltip r-Tooltip--bottom" data-r-tooltip="I'm the tooltip body">Hover me to see the tooltip !</span>

Available classes

.r-Tooltip

Position modifiers

.r-Tooltip--top
.r-Tooltip--bottom
.r-Tooltip--left
.r-Tooltip--right

.r-Tooltip--visible

Force visibility (no need to hover).

.r-Tooltip--nowrap

Add a avoid whitespace to wrap content (force content to be on one line).

.r-Tooltip--centerText

Add text-align: center on the tooltip content.

Availables custom properties

:root {
    --r-Tooltip-zIndex: 1000;
    --r-Tooltip-backgroundColor: #383838;
    --r-Tooltip-margin: .5rem;

    --r-Tooltip-arrow-size: .5rem;
}

Customize

If custom properties are not enough, you can obviously override default rules. Or add modifier(s).

Adding a state

It's easy to add a success or error state.

.r-Tooltip--STATE::before {
    background-color: var(--r-Tooltip--STATE-color);
    text-shadow: 0 -1px 0 color(var(--r-Tooltip--STATE-color) blackness(90%));
}
    .r-Tooltip--STATE.r-Tooltip--top::after { border-top-color: var(--r-Tooltip--STATE-color) }
    .r-Tooltip--STATE.r-Tooltip--bottom::after { border-bottom-color: var(--r-Tooltip--STATE-color) }
    .r-Tooltip--STATE.r-Tooltip--left::after { border-left-color: var(--r-Tooltip--STATE-color) }
    .r-Tooltip--STATE.r-Tooltip--right::after { border-right-color: var(--r-Tooltip--STATE-color) }
