A utility to count words


Install the module

npm install @wordpress/wordcount --save

Accepted Paramaters

count( text, type, userSettings )

count accepts three parameters:

  1. text: A string containing the words/characters to be counted.
  2. type: A string that represents the type of count. The current implementation accepts the strings 'words', 'characters_excluding_spaces', or 'characters_including_spaces'.
  3. userSettings: An object that contains the list of regular expressions that will be used to count. See defaultSettings.js for the defaults.


import { count } from '@wordpress/wordcount';
const numberOfWords = count( 'Words to count', 'words', {} )
