Split text along a path - letter spacing

Recommended Posts

I am trying to animate type along a svg path. Thanks to some help from demos on this forum, I am very close to the effect I am after. 


The problem I have is the kerning (space between each letter ) is messed up. I understand this is because I am not allowing for the individual character widths within my start and end positions. Is it possible to access these within the forEach loop?

You can get the position of every char and then figure out what adjustments to make. It will give you left, top, width, and height.

let bounds = char.getBoundingClientRect();
