Line Cutter is a tiny jQuery text truncation plugin that clamps text with max lines and adds overflow ellipsis to the end of the text block.

How to use it:

1. Download and insert the line-cutter.js library after the latest jQuery library (slim build is recommended).

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.4.1.slim.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-J6qa4849blE2+poT4WnyKhv5vZF5SrPo0iEjwBvKU7imGFAV0wwj1yYfoRSJoZ+n" 
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>
<script src="line-cutter.js"></script>

2. Call the function on the long text block and specify the max number of lines. The second parameters is used to define the ellipsis character to be displayed at the end of the text block.
