ellipsis.js is a responsive multi-line text truncation plugin that truncates your long text by a specific number of lines and adds "..." to the end of the word using CSS 'text-overflow: ellipsis' property.

How to use it:

1. Load the JavaScript file jquery.ellipsis.js after jQuery library and the ellipsis.js is ready for use.

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

2. Add the required styles to your webpage or existing CSS file.

.ellip {
  display: block;
  height: 100%;
}

.ellip-line {
  display: inline-block;
  text-overflow: ellipsis;
  white-space: nowrap;
  word-wrap: normal;
  max-width: 100%;
}

.ellip,
.ellip-line {
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
}

3. Initialize the plugin on a multi-line block of text.

$('.overflow').ellipsis();

4. Truncate your text to a specific number of lines:

$('.overflow').ellipsis({
  lines: '2', // default: 'auto'
});

5. Enable the 'Responsive' option to auto refresh the plugin on window resize.

$('.overflow').ellipsis({
  responsive: true
});
