jQuery Expandable comes with a few optional configuration settings, helping developers control how their textareas grow or shrink.

The first setting is the animation speed that the textarea expands or shrinks with.

The second is the time interval at which it checks the textarea for newly entered text.

The third and forth regard the number of rows to leave as space between the end of the text and the textarea margin, along with the number of rows it expands or shrinks the textarea at a time.

The last setting regards a maximum value to which the textarea can grow to, so not to overwhelm the viewport.

A small demo is included with the download package.
