Jekyll Wordcount

Jekyll Wordcount is a small plugin for adding a word count to your Jekyll blog posts. It's essentially a simple Liquid filter that just strips the content from all HTML tags and then counts the words. It can also calculate how long it takes to read the post based on the counted words.

Usage

Place the wordcount.rb in your _plugins folder and add one or both of the below snippets in one of your layouts:

{{ content | count_words }}
{{ content | count_seconds }}

Example

<p>This post is {{ content | count_words }} words long. It'll take you {{ content | count_seconds }} seconds to read it.</p>
