Using CommonJS require statement

API

shuffleLetters(element, [config])

Params

Param Type Default Description
element HTMLElement The HTML element whose textContent we want to apply the shuffle effect.
[config] object {} Configurable object to override the default options.
[config.text] string "''" Alternative text that can be used instead of the textContent of the element.
[config.iterations] number 8 The number of times the characters will be shuffled before the animation ends.
[config.fps] number 30 The amount of frames per second that the animation runs.
[config.onComplete] function () => void A callback function that is called when the animation of the effect is complete.

Returns: function - Returns a function that when called, it clears the timeoutID which identifies the timer created by the call to setTimeout() that is used internally for the shuffle effect. Useful for cleanup purposes, for example when you want to remove the element before the animation is completed.

Array.prototype.forEach.call(listItems, (element, index) => {
  shuffleLetters(element, {
    onComplete: elm => {
      if (index === listItems.length - 1) {
        console.log('All effects were completed');
      }
    }
  });
});
