Tailor Your Content
With Flexibility in Mind

All of us have different expectations when it comes to content. Tailor your messages in a way that will keep your audience engaged. Write beautiful content that folds and expands with a click of a button.

TooLooDR will help you do just that. With the help of this little tool, you can bring your writing ideas to life in a progressive, intuitive manner.

TooLooDR in 3 Sentences

TooLooDR is a writing and reading concept that aims to present one article in several forms and lengths by separating the content into multiple levels of detail.

Its structure guides the author to think in terms of complexity, lengthiness, and targeted audience for each level they create.

The goal of TooLooDR is to offer brevity for those who are in a hurry, but also provide more detail on demand for those who want more.

How Does it Work?

The idea is simple! You structure your content in a way so parts of it could be taken out or added to it - without what's currently there losing its meaning.

Let's say that you have something to say, and for that, you need 1000 words. You could maybe say it in fewer words, but you're adamant to paint the whole picture. TooLooDR to the rescue!

Enclose the minimum between [tl1][/tl1] tags, enclose the additional information between [tl2][/tl2] tags, and finally - enclose all the details between [tl3][/tl3] tags.

Offer that minimum to those who always say TL;DR to a longer text, maybe they will return later for the whole thing. At the same time, have the full version available with the click of the mouse for those who want to read more.

Reach More People With Your Content

Some people like it really short, and they will sometimes pass on your content just because of its lengthiness.

Some people don’t care for stripped-down versions of everything they read. They want the details, the back story – the whole nine yards.

With the TooLooDR writing concept, you can appeal to both groups - even those in between. Who's to say you can't please everyone with your content?

<div id="article">[tl1]TooLooDR Text[/tl1]</div>
var myTooLooDR = new TooLooDR("#article", {
    defaultTooLooLevel: 2,
    buttonLabels: {
        show: true
        tooLoo1: 'tldr1',
        tooLoo2: 'tldr2',
        tooLoo3: 'tldr3',
    readingTime: {
        show: true,
        wordsPerMin: 200,
        labelSeparator: ' • ',
        showPercentage: true,
        percentageSeparator: ' • ',
