Is it possible to add a staggerTo or staggerFrom to all the lines of text in a paragraph programmatically?  I appreciate I could wrap all the lines in spans, but it's part of a piece of text that won't be fixed in size, so the number of lines will change dependent on device, window size.

Also, is this a bad idea generally in terms of performance?

I've included a codepen above with two paragraphs that are part of a stagger, but I was wondering about having each line stagger (note: if it is possible I would put all the text within one element / #id.  I just did two elements in the example so i had something to stagger).

Any ideas / suggestions welcome.

Yes - SplitText is only the beginning. The Club has many cool plugins that you'll get with membership. They really save you a lot of time so membership pays for itself quickly too.




Happy tweening.
