Medium Word Count Chrome Extension
The website Medium.com offers an excellent writing environment. One problem I always had with the service is that it doesn’t really keep track of how long a post is. Other services, such as Editorially, do keep track of the length. I prefer Medium’s writing mode to Editorially’s, but wanted to know how long my posts are.
So I wrote a Chrome browser extension to solve this problem for me. It’s very simple and very subtle. In the editor, the word count is displayed in the top left.
