jquerytypewriter is a jQuery plugin to do the "typewriter" effect.

It's based on the movie WarGames when the computer, Joshua, was playing tic tac toe. (

You can see it in action here:

Checkout demo.html for example usage.

In general, it's like this:
    'delay': 100, //time in ms between each letter
    'extra_char': '', //"cursor" character to append after each display
    'trim': true, // Trim the string to type (Default: false, does not trim)
    'callback': null // if exists, called after all effects have finished
You can’t perform that action at this time.
