Change Log

Heres the demo!

Angular directive (typescript) to do what fittext.js did when jquery was cool. This auto-scales the font size to fit the width of it's container.

Versioning & What heppened to ng4-fittext?

This package was renamed angular-fittext to get rid of the ng version binding. This will follow the updates for angular and will not need to be bound specifically to a version of angular. We have kept the same github repo, but renamed it to angular-fittext.


Install the library
$ npm install --save angular-fittext


Import it in your Angular project as a module
1) Declare it in your module

        <div style="width: 20%; height: 20%; margin: 0 auto;">
