    reading-level

    Reading-level returns the numeric reading level of a sample text based on the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Readability Formula.

    const { readingLevel } = require('reading-level')
     
    const text1 = 'this is a simple sentence'
    const text2 = 'the perpendicular platypus perused the panoramic pyramid'
    const text3 = '0120131908 74123987419823'
    const text4 = ''
     
    readingLevel(text1) // 3 
    readingLevel(text2) // 21
    readingLevel(text3) // 'Either no sentences or words, please enter valid text'
    readingLevel(text4) // 'Either no sentences or words, please enter valid text'
     
    readingLevel(text2, 'full') // { sentences: 1,
                                //   words: 7,
                                //   syllables: 20,
                                //   unrounded: 20.854285714285712,
                                //   rounded: 21 }
     
    • all numeric values and punctuation are stripped out before analysis
    • pass 'full' as a second argument to get the breakdown
    • this seems to work with languages besides english, however I have no idea about the accuracy of the results
