Open Source DOM Component
Reading time, percent, and pointsby Read Write Tools
|The rwt-reading-points DOM component provides site visitors with a clue about a document's reading-level, using a descriptive learning level and experience points system.|
When user's browse technical documentation it's not always easy to know if a page is meant for first timers or advanced users. This DOM component provides that information using an ephemeral notification-style text block.
As the user reads, a timer tracks how many seconds is spent reading. As the user scrolls down, the readers progress (as percent read) is tracked. This information is saved to the user's local storage for use with the rwt-reading-summary DOM component.
In the wild
To see an example of this component in use, visit the READ WRITE SERVE website. The component is visible immediately after loading for about five seconds before fading away. To understand what's going on under the hood, use the browser's inspector to view the HTML source code and network activity.
