A DX implementation of the Michael Lynch jQuery plugin used to display an estimated time to read some text.
Can I use this component many times on the same page
Yes, you can; it use a filter that creates unique div ID.
Is there a way to personalize the output?
The estimated time is located in a DIV with "eta" CSS class name. Feel free to create your own stylesheet!
Who is maintaining this code
The JS cames from https://github.com/michael-lynch/reading-time
Download the jar and deploy it on your instance, then activate the module on the site you wish to use. Once it's done, drag the component "Reading Time" to your page. By default, the estimated reading time is based on all content of the page (BODY) but you can link the component with any part of the page.
