Simulate Human Typing with jQuery in less than 5min

simulateTyping.gifMy Classifieds landing page looks a bit boring. I need to add a cool factor & provide a ‘something is happening here’ feeling for new visitors. So how about simulating someone typing a few popular searches, such as ‘looking for a car’ or ‘looking for an old laptop’.

I found just the right library for it & it can be implemented in less than 5min. It is a free jquery library called Typed.js which simulates typing. [The library is written by Matt Boldt (see his site here, Github here)]

Got it implemented in less than 5 minutes. Herewith the steps needed

  1. Reference the library & configure its usage 
  2. Reference the Html element.
