This weekend I just couldn’t face working on the updated Form Tools documentation and took a break instead. There’s only a dozen or so tutorials left to do, but yeesh. Seriously brainfried, here.
Instead, I created a simple Polymer custom element called <char-counter />. It, well, adds a character counter to your form fields. Super simple. It’s available on Bower or via github.
Check out the demo site here. That contains a link to the source code on github.
