Wanting to quickly post a HTML form made of a textarea I found nothing on the web that would quickly allow me to press Enter to submit the contents. Similar to how Facebook got rid of their comment button (simply press enter when finished commenting) I want to use the Return key to submit the form while retaining the possibility to create line breaks by hitting Shift+Enter.

I thus came up with jquery-shiftenter, a simple jQuery plug-in to turn your textareas into an input accepting Enter to submit and showing a textual hint on how to generate newlines.

You can find an example here. The code is on github. Enjoy.
