Aristotle Metadata announces outcomes of December 2023 IRAP assessment

Announcing the release of Aristotle Tooltip!

Aristotle Tooltip

We are pleased to announce the release of Aristotle Tooltip, an easy way to improve the depth and accuracy of information presented on your website, by leveraging high quality Aristotle Metadata Registry powered metadata. Aristotle Tooltips are easily integrable on any website, and display definitions and links to metadata that accurately describe your website content. Aristotle Tooltips are designed to have a consistent, appealing look and feel, regardless of the design of your website, and to look good and be accessible at all screen sizes. Security was prioritized during design so that Aristotle Tooltip users can feel confident they’re keeping their clients safe as well as informed.

We’ve leveraged the jsDelivr CDN, which has more than 750 points of presence worldwide to ensure that anyone can access the Aristotle Tooltip rapidly and reliably. Additionally, we’ve been ruthless in reducing the size of the library (20kB gzipped; 130 times smaller than the average mobile camera picture) while still maintaining legacy browser support (IE11+ compatible) to ensure that every user never has to wait to view valuable contextual information.

As a testament to our confidence in the usefulness of Aristotle Tooltip, we use it in all of our production Aristotle Cloud deployments to assist our clients in better organising their metadata. Perhaps you’ve even seen one of the characteristic popovers already?

Aristotle tooltip example

Quick Start

So you’re already convinced, and can’t wait to get started?

Here’s how you incorporate aristotle_tooltip into your website

Module Bundler:

Install the aristotle-tooltip package:

frankie@aristotle:~$ npm i aristotle_tooltip

In your application, import the aristotle_tooltip module, and the core css:

import {addAristotle} from 'aristotle_tooltip'
import 'aristotle_tooltip/dist/tooltip.css'


<script src=""></script>

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">

Place the script tag at the very bottom of the <body> and the style sheet in the <head> as per usual. They must be placed before your own scripts, because of how the underlying Tippy.js library adds the tooltips.


To add a tooltip for a piece of content on your webpage

A <a href="#" data-aristotle-id="498427">person</a> is known by the company they keep


Aristotle Tooltip is exposed as a global variable, so all you need to do to add all tooltips to a particular page is pass in a couple of options and add aristotleTooltip(options); to your Javascript. For a more comprehensive explanation of all the options (and Aristotle Tooltip supports configuration), our NPM library has a complete list of options.

let options = {
  'url': '',
  'definitionWords': 50,
  'longDefinitionWords': 75,
