Project Description

Calculates the time some text takes the average human to read, based on Medium’s read time forumula.

Installation

virtualenv venv
. venv/bin/activate
pip install readtime

Or if you like to live dangerously:

sudo pip install readtime

Usage

Import readtime and pass it some text, HTML, or Markdown to get back the time it takes to read:

>>> import readtime
>>> result = readtime.of_text('The shortest blog post in the world!')
>>> result.seconds
2
>>> result.text
u'1 min'

The result can also be used as a string:

>>> str(readtime.of_text('The shortest blog post in the world!'))
u'1 min read'

To calculate read time of Markdown:

readtime.of_markdown('This is **Markdown**')

To calculate read time of HTML:
