Guest Post on WebAppers – Create a Content Rich Tooltip with JSON and jQuery

A JSON Powered Tooltip

How are you populating your tooltip content? JSON is one of those things that tends to get overlooked, even though it is incredibly simple to work with.

In a guest post written for WebAppers that went live today, we’ll build a tooltip variation that changes the banner contents based on the link hovered over. The contents of which are all loaded from a JSON array using some jQuery flair.

Today we’re going to break the mold of the traditional tooltip. This tutorial will demonstrate how to build tooltips that are powered by jQuery, with information pulled from a JSON array.

The Final Result

This is one of the first guest posts I’ve written in a while, and the first of a few planned over the next month. You can read the full tutorial over on WebAppers at “Create a Content Rich Tooltip with JSON and jQuery.”

      Thanks for the compliments on the new design tweaks. I was a fan of your color scheme post a while back, maybe a color palette blog post switch is in order?
