Get Visible Text Nodes With The VisibleText jQuery Plugin

VisibleText is a jQuery plugin that gets a string of all aggregated visible text nodes from HTML element, jQuery object, or NodeList.

Similar to the jQuery's text() method but more flexible and powerful.

How to use it:

1. Load the main script jquery.visibleText.js after jQuery.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/jquery.visibleText.js"></script>

2. Get all visible text from an element you specify.

<p class="lead">Lorem ipsum <em>dolor</em> sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer iaculis scelerisque mauris, vitae bibendum quam dictum vitae. Integer turpis ante, auctor at felis sit amet, interdum maximus turpis. </p>
  var text = $('.lead').visibleText();

3. Output the text.
