Hint.css was a fun experiment to implement something really interesting I learned –– that you can actually access any attribute’s value in CSS (using the attr function on the content property) and display it inside an element!
It immediately hit me –– what if we could read that same attribute with tooltip content and just show it styled as a tooltip inside the element using CSS? That's how Hint.css was born, the first-ever CSS-only tooltip library. :) I was overwhelmed to see the love it got on sites like Hacker News (it reached #1 on the front page) and Reddit.
Web Maker was something that came out of my own need for a front-end playground that was really quick and could work offline. Something I could use in my free time in trains, airports, or anywhere without network connectivity. It first started out as a Chrome extension, and now is also available as a PWA to use on any modern browser.
