I'm a jQuery plugin.
I change a font size to fill a container.

Type something...

how to use

include jQuery and myself

<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.textfill.min.js"></script>

mark the element I'll expand

<div id="my-element" style="width:100px; height:50px;">
    <span>My awesome text!</span>

Note: make sure to put the text inside of a child span and
specify the parent's width and height
