	maxHeight: 120, // Max height of the tooltip box
	maxWidth: 250, // Max width of the tooltip box
	maskVisible: true, // Shows the mask
	maskVisibleOnNoTarget: false, // Shows a full page mask if no target element has been specified
	maskClickThrough: false, // Allows the user to interact with elements beneath the mask
	maskScrollThrough: true // Allows the user to scroll the scrollbox or window through the mask
	maskColor: 'rgba(0,0,0,.7)' // The mask color
	scrollBox: 'body', // The container to scroll when searching for elements
	previousText: 'Previous',
	nextText: 'Next',
	finishText: 'Finish',
	showPrevious: true, // Setting to false hides the previous button
	showNext: true // Setting to false hides the next button
	animationDuration: 400, // Animation Duration for the box and mask
	placement: ['bottom', 'right', 'top','left'],
	dark: false, // Dark mode (Works great with `mask.visible = false`)
	disableInteraction: false, // Disable interaction with the highlighted elements
	disableEscExit: false // Disable end of tour when pressing ESC,
}

API

.start(tour)

  • Starts a Tour
  • Params:
tour: Tour Object
  • Returns:
Promise that resolves when the tour is finished or rejected when aborted.

.stop()

  • Stops a Tour
  • Returns:
Promise that resolves when the tour is stopped.

.next()

  • Goes to the next step in the current tour
  • Returns:
Promise that resolves when the next step is reached

.previous()

  • Goes to the previous step in the current tour
Promise that resolves when the previous step is reached

.goto(index)

  • Goes to a specific step in the tour
  • Params:
index: The 0-index number of the step eg. 0, 1, 2, 3
  • Returns:
Promise that resolves when the specific step is reached

Using Promise Event Hooks

You can pass any function that returns a promise to the before and after properties for any step. When the promise resolves, the tour moves on accordingly.

Example

var tour = {
	steps: [{
      target: '#first-element',
      content: 'This is the first step!',
    }, {
      target: '.some .other .element',
      content: 'Blah blah blah.',
      before: () => {
      	// Do something amazing
      	return new Promise()
    	}
    }, {
      target: '#menu-element',
      content: 'I guess this is a menu!',
      after: () => {
      	// Do some more cool stuff
      	return new Promise()
    	}
    }, {
      target: '#last-element',
      content: 'It is over! :(',
    }]
}
