This is an easy to use auto-expanding textarea with angularjs. No other library required!


  1. Change ng-keypress to ng-keyup and this is golden. Great work.

  2. OK. It turns out I needed to handle the case for when I had data loaded in with ng-model. So I needed to leverage $timeout. Of course I could have thrown $watch in there, but that seems dirty to me. :)

    Here's a modified version. http://codepen.io/kenhowardpdx/pen/azzYZz

  3. Thanks for modifying it. I applied the changes from your version :) Btw I also added transition to make height change look smoother.

  4. when I delete text from the textarea the scroll height never goes back to the original height.
