NPM Build Status


Medium's like reading time estimation.

reading-time helps you estimate how long an article will take to read. It works perfectly with plain text, but also with markdown or html.

Note that it's focused on performance and simplicity, so the number of words it will extract from other formats than plain text can vary a little. But this is an estimation right?

Installation

npm install reading-time --production

Usage

Classic

var readingTime = require('reading-time');
 
var stats = readingTime(text);
// -> 
// stats: { 
//   text: '1 min read', 
//   time: 60000. 
//   words: 200 
// } 

Stream

var readingTime = require('reading-time/stream');
 
fs.createReadStream('foo').pipe(readingTime).on('data', function(stats) {
    // ... 
});
