Provides a real-time Word Count in the status-bar for Sublime Text 2. See:

Count words on document or in selections.

The minimal word length is 1 and does not count digits.

An estimated reading time is now appended to the end of the word count.

     Allows to control if the live word counter is enabled. Otherwise will be enabled for selections only.

     Reading time is only displayed when there is a time > 1s.
  • readtime_wpm : 200

     Sets the WPM to calculate the Estimated Reading Time for the file.
  • whitelist_syntaxes : []

     An array of syntax names that WordCount should run on.

     If the array is empty, like it is by default, WordCount will run on any syntax.
