Succinct shortens your text to a specified size, and then adds an ellipsis to the end. Simple and to the point.
Live Demo: http://micjamking.github.io/succinct/
Specify the elements that you would like to truncate as a selector, and then set the size parameter to the amount you would like to see. For example, if you would like to truncate all elements with a specific class, ie.
<p class="truncate"> to 120 characters...
By default, the plugin truncates text to 240 characters.
- * Succinct is < 0.5kb minified

- If you have any suggestions, comments, or creative insults for my code, add an issue or fork the repo.
