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?

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