A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

I know this is a little late:

IMPORTANT: I will be taking a break from Monkeytype for the duration of December (and potentially a bit of January too). I will address all PRs and issues when I start working on the project again. For critical issues, email Thanks.

TypeScript SASS HTML5


Monkeytype is a minimalistic and customizable typing test. It features many test modes, an account system to save your typing speed history, and user-configurable features such as themes, sounds, a smooth caret, and more. Monkeytype attempts to emulate the experience of natural typing during a typing test, by unobtrusively presenting the text prompts and displaying typed characters in-place, providing straightforward, real-time feedback on typos, speed, and accuracy.


  • minimalistic design, with optional advertisements and focus mode while typing
  • type what you see, see what you type
  • live errors, wpm, and accuracy displays
  • variety of test lengths and languages
  • punctuation and numbers modes
  • quotes
  • themes
  • smooth caret
  • account system
  • challenges and just-for-fun test modifiers
  • and much more

Discord bot

On the Monkeytype Discord server, we added a Discord bot to auto-assign optional roles based on typing performance and challenge completion. You can find its code over at
