Cuttr is a zero dependency, easy to use JS/jQuery library that truncates multiple line text content (Line Clampin’) to fit within given specifications. It adds an ending string like a ellipsis (...) to indicate that there is more text available than currently visible.
- Multiple truncation methods
- Truncate text without breaking the HTML
- Custom ellipsis strings
- Optional "Read more" anchor
