Estimate time to read

I have seen on various sites listing an estimate of how long it will take to read the article.

I do not expect these sites have measured how long it actually takes an average read the article. Instead, I assume they use a heuristic based on average reading speed in words per minute and then just count the words in the linked article.

An example of this is as can be seen here:

How can I make Jekyll estimate the time to read an article/post?

did you try googling? first couple results looked pretty good to me. Basically use liquid to return the number of words and divide by 180 or 200 or whatever you think it should be.

Try using this plugin

Thanks. This works.

For reference, thisis what I did:

{{ post.content | number_of_words | divided_by: 180 }} min read
