Snipper is a lightweight jQuery text truncation plugin to create a summary of your long content that allows to truncate the text to a specific height no matter how and when you resize the browser window.

How to use it:

1. Just include the main JS file snipper.js after JQuery JavaScript library and we're ready to go.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="snipper.js"></script>

2. Call the plugin and specify the height you want to truncate the text to.

$.fn.snipper.defaults.height = 100;
$('p').snipper();

// or
$('p').snipper({
  height: '100px'
});

3. Customize the 'ellipsis' character to be displayed at the end of the truncated text.

$('p').snipper({
  ellipsis: '&hellip;'
});

4. If you want to re-truncate the text on each window resize:

var snipParagraphs = function(){
    $('p').snipper();
};

snipParagraphs();
$(window).resize(snipParagraphs);
