ElementFromPoint.js

NPM version

ElementFromPoint.js is a cross-browser document.elementFromPoint function that works consistently across browsers that may implement document.elementFromPoint differently.

For example, older iOS or Android devices (with WebKit) implement elementFromPoint such that it takes page (pageX/Y) coordinates, not viewport (clientX/Y) coordinates. Use this function to always work with viewport coordinates.

Further reading

Installing

Installing on Node.js

npm install element-from-point

Using

Require and use it as you would use document.elementFromPoint.
Just make sure to pass in viewport coordinates and you're all set.

var elementFromPoint = require("element-from-point")

document.addEventListener("mousedown", function(ev) {
  var el = elementFromPoint(ev.clientX, ev.clientY)
})
