A tooltip component for React apps utilizing the excellent popper.js library.


npm install --save @cypress/react-tooltip


import Tooltip from '@cypress/react-tooltip'

<Tooltip title="Hello World">
  <button>Click me</button>

The tooltip will automatically appear when mousing over the button and disappear when mousing out from the button.
