Amazing animations for typing text into and input field. Runs a bit slow in Firefox and is slightly jumpy in Safari on desktop and mobile but runs very well in Chrome.

Here’s the features from the accompanying blog post:

  • Supports input (type text) and textarea form elements
  • Add effects to each letter being typed / deleted
  • All effects are highly customizable via CSS
  • Default effects are CSS3 hardware accelerated
  • Tries to simulates real input / textarea as much as possible
