Succinct

A tiny jQuery plugin for truncating multiple lines of text

How does it work?

Succinct shortens your text to a specified size, and then adds an ellipsis to the end.

Demo

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.

To change the ellipsis to an HTML unicode arrow "→"...

<script>
    $(function(){
        $('.truncate').succinct({
            omission: '&rarr;'
        });
    });
</script>

By default, the plugin also removes the set of 32 ASCII special characters at the end of words, ie. ! " # $ and so on. To disable this behavior...

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