rc-tooltip is a lightweight and customizable tooltip component for React applications. It provides an easy way to add tooltips to elements, allowing you to display additional information or context when users hover over or interact with specific elements on your website or application.
@popperjs/core is a standalone positioning engine that provides a flexible and robust solution for creating tooltips, popovers, dropdowns, and other UI components. It focuses on the positioning logic and does not provide any UI components out of the box. On the other hand, rc-tooltip is a specific tooltip component that is built on top of @popperjs/core. It provides a ready-to-use tooltip component with customizable styles and behaviors.
@popperjs/core offers a high level of flexibility and customization options. It allows you to create custom UI components using its positioning engine. rc-tooltip, on the other hand, provides a more opinionated and pre-styled tooltip component with limited customization options.
@popperjs/core has comprehensive documentation that covers all aspects of using the positioning engine. It provides clear examples and guides for different use cases. rc-tooltip also has decent documentation, but it is more focused on the usage of the tooltip component rather than the underlying positioning engine.
@popperjs/core is actively maintained by the Popper.js community and has a strong commitment to bug fixes and feature updates. rc-tooltip is also maintained, but it may have a smaller community and slower update cycle compared to @popperjs/core.
