$('.demo').truncate({
  token: 'More...',
});

6. Determine whether to apply the plugin to multiline text. Default: false.

$('.demo').truncate({
  multiline: true,
});

7. Apply a CSS class to the text. Default: false.

$('.demo').truncate({
  addclass: 'highlight',
});

8. Determine whether to add a title attribute to the text. Default: false.

$('.demo').truncate({
  addtitle: true,
});

9. Cache the styles for multiple text with the same styles. Default: false.

  assumeSameStyle: true,
});
