Calculates the time some text takes the average human to read, based on Medium’s read time forumula.
virtualenv venv . venv/bin/activate pip install readtime
Or if you like to live dangerously:
sudo pip install readtime
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:
readtime.of_html('This is <strong>HTML</strong>')
