It can be achieved using JS. Here is a 'one-line' solution using elastic.js:

$('#note').elastic();

Updated: Seems like elastic.js is not there anymore, but if you are looking for an external library, I can recommend autosize.js by Jack Moore. This is the working example:

autosize(document.getElementById("note"));
textarea#note {
	width:100%;
	box-sizing:border-box;
	direction:rtl;
	display:block;
	max-width:100%;
	line-height:1.5;
	padding:15px 15px 30px;
	border-radius:3px;
	border:1px solid #F7E98D;
	font:13px Tahoma, cursive;
	transition:box-shadow 0.5s ease;
	box-shadow:0 4px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.1);
	font-smoothing:subpixel-antialiased;
	background:linear-gradient(#F9EFAF, #F7E98D);
	background:-o-linear-gradient(#F9EFAF, #F7E98D);
	background:-ms-linear-gradient(#F9EFAF, #F7E98D);
	background:-moz-linear-gradient(#F9EFAF, #F7E98D);
	background:-webkit-linear-gradient(#F9EFAF, #F7E98D);
}

Answer

This using Pure JavaScript Code.

function auto_grow(element) {
    element.style.height = "5px";
    element.style.height = (element.scrollHeight)+"px";
}
textarea {
    resize: none;
    overflow: hidden;
    min-height: 50px;
    max-height: 100px;
}
<textarea oninput="auto_grow(this)"></textarea>

Answer

For those of us accomplishing this with Angular, I used a directive

HTML:

<textarea elastic ng-model="someProperty"></textarea>

JS:

.directive('elastic', [
    '$timeout',
    function($timeout) {
        return {
            restrict: 'A',
            link: function($scope, element) {
                $scope.initialHeight = $scope.initialHeight || element[0].style.height;
                var resize = function() {
                    element[0].style.height = $scope.initialHeight;
                    element[0].style.height = "" + element[0].scrollHeight + "px";
                };
                element.on("input change", resize);
                $timeout(resize, 0);
            }
        };
    }
]);

$timeout queues an event that will fire after the DOM loads, which is what's necessary to get the right scrollHeight (otherwise you'll get undefined)

I used jQuery AutoSize. When I tried using Elastic it frequently gave me bogus heights (really tall textarea's). jQuery AutoSize has worked well and hasn't had this issue.

Answer

I see that this is answered already, but I believe I have a simple jQuery solution ( jQuery is not even really needed; I just enjoy using it ):

I suggest counting the line breaks in the textarea text and setting the rows attribute of the textarea accordingly.

var text = jQuery('#your_textarea').val(),
    // look for any "\n" occurences
    matches = text.match(/\n/g),
    breaks = matches ? matches.length : 2;

jQuery('#your_textarea').attr('rows',breaks + 2);

var minRows = 5;
var maxRows = 26;
function ResizeTextarea(id) {
    var t = document.getElementById(id);
    if (t.scrollTop == 0)   t.scrollTop=1;
    while (t.scrollTop == 0) {
        if (t.rows > minRows)
                t.rows--; else
            break;
        t.scrollTop = 1;
        if (t.rows < maxRows)
                t.style.overflowY = "hidden";
        if (t.scrollTop > 0) {
            t.rows++;
            break;
        }
    }
    while(t.scrollTop > 0) {
        if (t.rows < maxRows) {
            t.rows++;
            if (t.scrollTop == 0) t.scrollTop=1;
        } else {
            t.style.overflowY = "auto";
            break;
        }
    }
}
