Yet another jQuery character counter plugin that limits characters for a text field using a data attribute and displays remaining characters allowed to be typed. Supports both input field and textarea.

How to use it:

1. Define the maximum character limit using data-maxchar attribute as this:

<input type="text" data-maxchar="15">
<textarea data-maxchar="140"></textarea>

2. Create an element with the CSS class of 'character-count' for the character counter.

<em class="character-count"></em>

3. Place jQuery library and the jQuery setCharLimit.js script in the webpage.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.0.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="characterlimit.js"></script>

4. Initialize the plugin and done.

$('input, textarea').characterlimit();
