mouse hover event for elements

A single event for mouse on, mouse around & mouse out. Can be used on whole elements, or for distinct points within any element. The latter feature was added specifically for canvas nodes.

var hover = require('mouse-around')

callback will be fired when mouse hovers the element. if an array of point-circles is included, the callback will only fire when hovering that areat that offset within the element. See below for example points array.

npm install mouse-around
  var mouseAround = require('mouse-around');
  // the node u want to trigger on 
    var node = document.getElementById('someElement');
  // optionally, an array of point-circle objects 
  var points = [(x: 100, y: 100, radius: 25}/*,{...}*/]
  var hoverBot = document.getElementById('hoverbot');
    mouseAround(node, callback, points); // otionally include an array of point-circle objects  
    // evt = the mouse event 
    // node = the original node you were listening to 
    // position = the absolute position of the element currently being hovered (which may be a child element) 
    // start & stop = boolean 
    function callback(evt, node, position, start, end){ = 50 + evt.clientX + "px"; = evt.clientY - 25 + 'px';
        if(end) = '-1000px';
