This is a simple package and shiny app designed to count words in a PDF document, for example generated by LaTeX.
You can use the package locally:
# install remotes::install_github("leeper/pdfcount") # load library("pdfcount") # count rintro <- file.path(Sys.getenv("R_HOME"), "doc", "manual", "R-intro.pdf") word_count(rintro)
Or, you can use it as a shiny app. A demo runs live at: https://leeper.shinyapps.io/pdfcount/
