Split Flap Style Text Display Plugin - jQuery Fallblatt

Fallblatt is a customizable jQuery text animation plugin that displays any text with a shuffling animation similar to the split-flap display as you've seen in airports and train stations.

How to use it:

1. Link to jQuery JavaScript library and the Fallblatt's files in the document.

<link href="/path/to/css/fallblatt.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/src/fallblatt.js"></script>

2. Create a container to hold the split-flap display.

<div id="splitFlapExample"></div>

3. Create a new instance of the split-flap display.

  // options here

4. Display your content in the split-flap display. This returns a promise $.Deferred().promise() for waiting until the text is displayed.

$("#splitFlapCanvas").fallBlatt("display", {

  // customize position here
  pos: [x,y],
  // text to animate
  content: "A"

5. Customize the animation with the following options.

  flapHeight: 120,
  flapWidth: 90,
  flapScale: 1,
  flapSpacingExtraHeight: 0,
  flapSpacingExtraWidth: 0,
  flapCharset: {
    // Index 0 is the default character (space)
    // If an unknown character is observed, the last char from the list will be used
    chars: " 1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ'‘?’“!”(%)[#]{@}/&\\<-_+÷×=>$€:;,.~*rbgyow",
    options: {
      // "CHAR": [List of classes to attach to this char]
      "(": ["splitFlapCharBrackets"],
