Automatically expand textarea to fit content using jQuery without autogrow or autosize plugins

I’m sure there is a more efficient way to do this, but it suited my needs.

<script>
$(function() {
    $('textarea').keyup(function(){
        $(this).each(function(index, element) {
            $(element).height(element.scrollHeight);
        });
    }).keyup(); //trigger event to initialize pre-filled textareas
});
</script>

Enjoy 🙂
