Alfred Workflow - Readtime

·1 min

Here’s a very simple Alfred Workflow I created to calculate the approximate readtime of the input text. It uses the calculation as documented by Medium, and my Perl implementation is a port of this Python implementation.

It doesn’t account for images, so loses some accuracy, but it’s good enough for what I quite often need.

The result is displayed on screen.

The workflow can be found on Github, and its logo is from SF Symbols.
