Hint.css is a tooltip library written completely in CSS. It’s originally written in SASS and uses only HTML/CSS to implement simple tooltips.

There is no JavaScript needed whatsoever to make the tooltips work. Hint.css bypasses all the JavaScript by making use of data-* attribute, pseudo elements, content property and CSS3 transitions to create stunning tooltips.

Hint.css also uses the Block-Element-Modifier (BEM) for modifiers. Once caveat with Hint.css is that transitions on pseudo elements is only available in Firefox currently. So this feature will not work in other browsers, but degrades gracefully in non-supporting browsers.
