        $.each(c.split(""), function(i, letter){
           $('body').html($('body').html() + i + letter);

Sure, our SplitText tool is perfect for splitting HTML text into characters, lines, words and gives you lots of extra features like assigning new classes to the split elements, setting position to relative / absolute on new element, reverting the split text back to its un-split state, etc. SplitText also automatically creates Arrays of (chars, words letters) so its very easy to loop through these arrays or pass them to a stagger method

If you chose to split your own way, you can loop through each character and create a new TweenLite tween for each character OR pass the whole Array or jQuery object to a stagger method like




For a very basic typewriter effect, you can just use our free TextPlugin
