One of the best features of altair is the ability to add a simple interactive tooltip to your chart.

Altair Tooltip Example

Here's how you can add the tooltip.

  .encode(x='yday', y='births', tooltip=['date', 'births', 'wday'])
  .properties(width=600, height=300)

The nice thing about the tooltip parameter is that you can choose the subset of columns to add to the overview.
