How to use it:

1. Create an empty container to display the character count statistics next to your text field.

<!-- Input Field -->
<input id="basic" />
<!-- Textarea -->
<input id="basic" />

<span id="target" class="count"></span>

2. Load the jquery-characters-caculator.js after jQuery.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/dist/js/jquery-characters-caculator.js"></script>

3. Create a basic character counter.

$('#basic').calculate(function (length, limit) {
  (limit > 0 ? $('#target').html(`<span>${length}</span>/${limit}`) : $('#target').html(`${length}`));
});

4. Count the number of characters including whitespaces.

$('#basic').calculate(function (length, limit) {
  (limit > 0 ? $('#target').html(`<span>${length}</span>/${limit}`) : $('#target').html(`${length}`));
},{
  whitespaces: false
});

5. Show the maximum number of characters allowed to type.

$('#basic').calculate(function (length, limit) {
  (limit > 0 ? $('#target').html(`<span>${length}</span>/${limit}`) : $('#target').html(`${length}`));
},{
  limit: 140
});
