Usage

jquery.typer.js can be used one of two ways:

Type once with typeTo()

If you just want to use the effect once, use typeTo(). It can be used as follows:

$('h3').typeTo("New Text");

This will do a one-time transition.

Type indefinitely with typer()

Now let's say you want to loop over a set of strings for the typing effect. Easy!

$('[data-typer-targets]').typer() 

That code will start the effect on all elements with the data-typer-targets attribute.

You obviously need to supply it with some source data. The data-typer-targets attribute can be either a comma-separated string or a piece of JSON.
