TheaterJS is a typing animation library that mimics human behavior. It offers features such as variable speed, callbacks, HTML support, and more. If you're looking for a minimalist version with basic play/stop functionality, there's a demo available on CodePen. To get started, you create a new TheaterJS object with options like autoplay, locale, minSpeed, and maxSpeed. You can add actors to the animation and define their accuracy and speed. The library provides methods for adding scenes, playing, stopping, and replaying the animation. It also supports event callbacks and localized keyboards.
