ellipsis is a dead simple jQuery plugin that truncates your text to a specified number of characters and adds an ellipsis (...) at the end of the container.

How to use it:

1. Load jQuery library and the jQuery ellipsis plugin preferably at the bottom so the page loads faster.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery-ellipsis-1.0.js"></script>

2. Call the function on the text that must be in a single straight line.

$(".text").ellipsis();

3. Set the maximum number of characters for the text you want to preserve.

$(".text").ellipsis({"maxLength": 20});
