clipcount: Counting words from the clipboard content

Why does this exist?

Do you find yourself often needing to count the number of words in a piece of text? You could use a website, or the wc command-line tool, but why not use something stupid simple?

So I made this.

How do I install it?

cargo install clipcount

How do I use it?

  1. ✂️ Copy some text to your clipboard

  2. 🏃🏽 Run clipcount from the command line

  3. ✅ You're done. What more did you expect?

I miss wc

The application provides an optional flag to present the output in the same format as wc:

clipcount --wc
