Put simply, the script splits headlines into rows before resizing each row to fill the available horizontal space.

jQuery plugin to mimic the new and upcoming CSS position: sticky;

jQuery++ is a collection of extremely useful DOM helpers and special events for jQuery. jQuery++ is all about providing low-level utilities for things that jQuery doesn’t support. If Underscore is jQuery’s functional-programming tie, jQuery++ is jQuery’s bald-spot covering toupee.
Some handy additions, yet I’m wondering why they provide an override of $.fn.animate() instead of pushing the changes into the jQuery core itself.
