10 jQuery Typography Plugins For Dynamically Changing Font Sizes

In this post, we have collected 10 jQuery typography plugins for dynamically changing font sizes according to screen / browser width. They will give you more control to precisely position and re-size each letter of your web-typography


1 – jQuery.fontFlex

Lightweight jQuery extension for dynamically changing font sizes according to screen / browser width. Intended to be used with responsive or adaptive CSS layouts.


2 – FitText

3 – FlowType.JS

Ideally, the most legible typography contains between 45 and 75 characters per line. This is difficult to accomplish for all screen widths with only CSS media-queries. FlowType.JS eases this difficulty by changing the font-size and line-height based on a specific element’s width. This allows for a perfect character count per line at any screen width.


4 – Responsive Measure

Responsive Measure is a simple script that allows you to pass in a selector (ideally the container where your primary content will go) which generates the ideal font size needed to produce the ideal measure for your text.


5 – slabText

The script splits headlines into rows before resizing each row to fill the available horizontal space. The ideal number of characters to set on each row is calculated by dividing the available width by the pixel font-size – the script then uses this ideal character count to split the headline into word combinations that are displayed as separate rows of text
