bigfoot.js: Create Better Footnotes

Bigfoot is a jQuery plugin to help you create better footnotes and make them a lot easier to use.

Footnotes on the web can be a pain; you click a tiny number, get transported somewhere near the bottom of the page, find the footnote, and click on a link to go back where you can from.

This script makes that process painless by automatically detecting the footnote link and content. Then it turns the link into an easy-to-click button, and adds a popover when the the footnote button is clicked.

The script and default styles are built to work great on any size viewport; the popover is positioned on the top or bottom automatically (based on the relative amount of space), will update its location as the viewport changes size and will ensure that the popover never scrolls off screen. These elements make for a better user experience.

The tool is easy to install and use and comes with some options so you can make adjustments on your own.

TourTip: Interactive Visual Guide

TourTip is an interactive visual guide to elements on web pages.

Instead of cluttering your interface with static help message, or explanatory text, add a page guide and let users learn about new features and functions.

TourTip is a simple library for creating guided tours through your application. It’s better suited to complex, single-page applications than websites. Our main requirement was the ability to control the interface for each step. For example, a step might need count seconds before moving to the next step, or wait for the user to complete a task. TourTip gives you the ability to manage these parameters all at once or for each step separately.

TourTip gives you everything you need to call out new features. It is extremely flexible and lets you take control of how people interact with your tour. It is designed to be cross-browser compatible with modern browsers and even uses some fancy CSS to avoid images.

You can also add external content as well as images to the guides to make them more comprehensive.

The plugin is pretty powerful and has a lot of options which gives you the power to build a very cool tour. Use TourTip for websites, products, applications, landing pages or something else.
