Taggd is a tool that allows you to tag pictures with additional information.



You need to include the stylesheet in the <head>-tag, and the script in the <body>-tag. Both files are in the dist directory.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/taggd/dist/taggd.css">

The stylesheet has no default theme, so they will be dull default buttons ready for you to style!

<script src="/path/to/taggd/dist/taggd.js"></script>

Finally, you can initialise taggd:

const image = document.getElementById('my-image');
const options = {};
const tags = [];

const taggd = new Taggd(image, options, tags);

The options parameter is a list of options. The tags parameter is a list of Tags. These are the buttons and popup that will render over your image. You can generate these using the Taggd tags generator.

Note on import strategy

If you’re importing Taggd via the ES2015 syntax with a bundler that respects the module field in package.json, Taggd and Tag are exported separately:

import { Taggd, Tag } from 'taggd';

new Taggd(image, options, [
  new Tag(...),

If you include the UMD bundle, Tag is part of the Taggd class:

new Taggd(image, options, [
  new Taggd.Tag(...),

The former allows ES2015+ environments to use imports as intended. The latter prevents having to expose multiple classes.

If you have better ideas to have best of both worlds, please create an issue.
