Make any web page annotatable

Today I present you guys a JavaScript library and tool that can be added to any web page and make it annotatable. The annotations themselves can have comments, tags, users and many more. The library was design for easy extensibility so its is pretty easy to add new features or behaviors.

The library is well documented and adding the Annotator is quite easy. Everything is done in two steps, first downloading the Annotator library and second add it to your page alongside jQuery (yes, jQuery is required for the Annotator to work). There is also the option for adding plugins to extend the functionality, plugins such as user accounts, tags, filtering or formatting. More about the library can be found on the documentation page.

Also, the popup that provide user information and comments can be easily styled via CSS.
