For reference, jQuery Tipsy is in core: https://git.wikimedia.org/tree/mediawiki%2Fcore.git/dc4c88b24a726367390ddb12c371933d7df448e2/resources%2Fsrc%2Fjquery.tipsy
It's a little confusing to use the same name for our own library (my understanding is the generic term is "tooltip" and Tipsy is a specific library), but apparently we're not the only people doing that (e.g. https://github.com/tilomitra/tipsy , https://github.com/dangvanthanh/tipsy.sass )
(In reply to Jared Zimmerman (WMF) from comment #3)
mediawiki.ui contains a flag/guider component is the plan that this will be
an extension/evolution to tipsy or something new?
As far as I know, the implemented mediawiki.ui code does not have such a component, but OOJS-UI does.
Our initial needs (we have implementations for these, but would like to unify them) are:
- Recommendations flyout, relatively simple.
- GuidedTour; flexible and powerful positioning and configuration.
