How to use?

Selecting doesn't depend on jQuery, Zepto or any other library to work. You need just to include it at the end of your HTML code:

  <script src="selecting.js"></script>

Then you can call window.selecting function passing two parameters: an DOM element (jQuery object or NodeList) to listen to and a callback function that receive a Selection object by parameter. For example:

  window.selecting($('.container'), function(selector) {
    // Properties
    selector.text; // The selected text
    selector.wordCount; // The number of words selected
  });

Example

See a simple example.
