truncateMe is a tiny yet multi-functional text truncation plugin which helps you limit the length of your long text depending on the number of characters or words you specify.

How to use it:

1. Insert the minified version of the jQuery truncateMe plugin after jQuery and you're ready to go.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.slim.min.js" 
       integrity="sha384-q8i/X+965DzO0rT7abK41JStQIAqVgRVzpbzo5smXKp4YfRvH+8abtTE1Pi6jizo" 
       crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
<script src="truncateMe.min.js"></script>

2. Limit the length of your text to a specified number of words (Default: 50).

<p class="truncateMe">
  Your Text Here
</p>
$.truncateMe({
  elem: '.truncateMe',
  trimTo: 10
});

3. Limit the length of your text to a specified number of characters (Default: 50).

<p class="truncateMe">
  Your Text Here
</p>
$.truncateMe({
  words: false
});

4. You can also use a custom data attribute to limit the length for each text content.

<p class="truncateMe" 
   data-truncateMe="20">
   Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit.
</p>
$.truncateMe({
  trimEach: 'data-truncateMe',
  words: false
});

5. Customize the Ellipsis characters displayed at the end of the truncated text.

$.truncateMe({
  add: '<span class="truncateMe-dots"> [Read More]</span>'
});
.truncateMe-dots {
  /* your styles here */
}

6. Sometimes you might need to override the default seletor:

$.truncateMe({
  elem: '.your-class'
});
