Auto typing a text using jQuery

<!-- If you wish to copy this function, Copy this html and classes ending in -js to make it work. The h1 is optional and so is the "headline" class. pssssst. if you use it, let me know I'd love to see it. My twitter is in the bottom corner or below --> <div class="type-js headline"> <h1 class="text-js">You have been hacked. #deadsec</h1> </div>
.text-js{ opacity: 0; } .cursor{ display: block; position: absolute; height: 100%; top: 0; right: -5px; width: 2px; /* Change colour of Cursor Here */ background-color: white; z-index: 1; animation: flash 0.5s none infinite alternate; } @keyframes flash{ 0%{ opacity: 1; } 100%{ opacity: 0; } } // Rest of CSS (Purely for this pen) @import url(',400'); *{ margin: 0; padding: 0; boz-sizing: border-box; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif } body{ background: linear-gradient(135deg,#00C4FF,#9D1BB2); height: 100vh; display: flex; align-items: center; justify-content: center; } // Text Can be styled just like normal .headline{ margin: 20px; color: white; font-size: 32px; text-align: center; h1{ letter-spacing: 1.6px; font-weight: 300; } } .twitterLink{ position: absolute; bottom: 0; right: 0; margin: 10px 15px; z-index: 3; svg{ width: 25px; } }
// This is the funtion you need to copy // Copy from line 9 to 34 function autoType(elementClass, typingSpeed){ var thhis = $(elementClass); thhis.css({ "position": "relative", "display": "inline-block" }); thhis.prepend('<div class="cursor" style="right: initial; left:0;"></div>'); thhis = thhis.find(".text-js"); var text = thhis.text().trim().split(''); var amntOfChars = text.length; var newString = ""; thhis.text("|"); setTimeout(function(){ thhis.css("opacity",1); thhis.prev().removeAttr("style"); thhis.text(""); for(var i = 0; i < amntOfChars; i++){ (function(i,char){ setTimeout(function() { newString += char; thhis.text(newString); },i*typingSpeed); })(i+1,text[i]); } },1500); } $(document).ready(function(){ // Now to start autoTyping just call the autoType function with the // class of outer div // The second paramter is the speed between each letter is typed. autoType(".type-js", 100); });
