Succinct: A tiny jQuery plugin for truncating multiple lines of text

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/

Usage

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...

<script>
    $(function(){
        $('.truncate').succinct({
            size: 120
        });
    });
</script>

By default, the plugin truncates text to 240 characters.

Details

  • * Succinct is < 0.5kb minified
  • You'll need a copy of jQuery to run this plugin
  • If you have any suggestions, comments, or creative insults for my code, add an issue or fork the repo.
