README

Gotta Go Fast

A command line utility for practicing typing and measuring your WPM and accuracy. Written with brick.

Installation

With Cabal:

$ cabal install gotta-go-fast

From source:

$ git clone https://github.com/callum-oakley/gotta-go-fast
$ cd gotta-go-fast
$ stack install

If you’re on macOS, you can also grab an executable from releases.

Usage

Pass gotta-go-fast the name of a file, and it will extract a random 20 line section for you to type – or the whole thing if the file is short enough. You’ll get a WPM and accuracy report after typing through the whole sample with no errors (use backspace to go back and make corrections).

$ gotta-go-fast README.md

Errors are highlighted in red.

Pass gotta-go-fast more than one file, and it will choose one at random.

$ gotta-go-fast src/*

Configuration

The maximum number of lines to sample, and the width at which to wrap them, can be changed by setting --height and --width.

The colour for untyped text and the colour for errors can be changed by setting --fg-empty and --fg-error to the appropriate ISOColor code. If you are greeted with a blank screen, you should try changing --fg-empty.

Run gotta-go-fast --help for details.
