Smoothly Animate Text Letter By Letter - jQuery Fonteo

Fonteo is a simple but customizable jQuery text animation plugin that smoothly animates given text letter by letter using your own functions.

More features:

  • Autoplay and pause on hover.
  • Infinite loop.
  • RTL or LTR.
  • Custom template.

How to use it:

1. Place the minified version of the jQuery Fonteo plugin after jqUERY.

<script src="" 
<script src="fonteo.js"></script>

2. Create a container in which you want to place the animated text.

<span class="fonteo"></span>

3. Initialize the plugin, specify the text to animate and customize the animation using the letterIn & letterOut functions as follows:

var opts = {
    text: 'Text To Animate...',
    direction: 'right',
    infinite: true,
    moving: true,
    pauseOnHover: true,
    speed: 10,
    letterIn: function(lr){
      lr.animate({'font-size':'30px', 'margin-left':'5px'  })

      setTimeout( function(){
      lr.animate({'font-size':'20px', 'margin-left':'22px'  })
      }, 100 )

      setTimeout( function(){
      lr.animate({'font-size':'40px', 'margin-left':'0px'  })
      }, 200 )
    letterOut: function(lr){
        $(this).fadeOut(300, function(){ $(this).remove() })

$('.fonteo').fonteo( opts )

4. You're also able to create the text animation using HTML data attributes:

<span class="fonteo"
