Hosted at GitHub; browse at:
Or clone from:
1. Copy the contents of src/{images,javascripts,stylesheets} to the corresponding asset directories in your project. If the relative path of your images directory from your stylesheets directory is not "../images", you'll need to adjust tipsy.css appropriately.
2. Insert the neccesary elements in your document's <head> section, e.g.:
<script type='text/javascript' src='/javascripts/jquery.tipsy.js'></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/stylesheets/tipsy.css" type="text/css" />
Remember to include jquery.tipsy.js *after* including the main jQuery library.
3. Initialise Tipsy in your document.onload, e.g.:
<script type='text/javascript'>
$(function() {
$('a[rel=tipsy]').tipsy({fade: true, gravity: 'n'});
