SplitLines jQuery Plugin

SplitLines ($.splitLines()) is a jQuery plugin that splits new lines of wrapped text into their own HTML elements, allowing you to animate or operate on each line individually. Works with nested HTML tags.

Requirements

  • jQuery 1.4.2 or later

Usage

HTML

<div id="mytext">
    This is an <strong>example</strong> of some long text 
    that we want to split into lines.
</div>

Javascript

$('#mytext').splitLines({
    tag: '<div><span class="someClass">',
    width: 200,
    keepHtml: true
});

Result

<div id="mytext">
    <div style="--line-index:0;"><span class="someClass">This is an</span></div>
    <div style="--line-index:1;"><span class="someClass"><strong>example</strong> of</span></div>
    <div style="--line-index:2;"><span class="someClass">some long</span></div>
    <div style="--line-index:3;"><span class="someClass">text that we</span></div>
    <div style="--line-index:4;"><span class="someClass">want to split</span></div>
    <div style="--line-index:5;"><span class="someClass">into lines.</span></div>
</div>

Now go forth, and animate!
