Some of the CartoDB maps online, like Illustreets react constantly to mouse hover instead of requiring a click. Is there a way that I can do that with my CartoDB maps?

One of the CartoDB developers just put a great example of this, see http://bl.ocks.org/javisantana/8313604

Right now it does take some javascript coding, leveraging cartodb.js. In the future the team hopes to add hover functionality directly to the GUI.


Also, there are some CartoDB templates developed by Michael Keller that will give you some more hints on how to do the hover with JS.


Its now been added to the GUI check this and this
