speedread – A simple terminal-based open source Spritz-alike.

A few hours ago, I have read about Spritz, a new speed-reading app, and I was quite impressed by the idea. I know the underlying concept is not new and I didn’t even try out Spritz itself (they announce their idea but not release the software, huh?), but this was the first time I have heard about it and I really liked it!

So I decided to implement my own terminal version of this idea, acting as a regular command-line filter. Find the new tool speedread at:

https://github.com/pasky/speedread

(Yes, it may not work well for beletry. Or slides. Yes, it may not work well for emails that you want to just skim for keywords. But then there’s the other 80% of text I need to chew through that does not fall in either category. I’ll have to continue trying it out for longer but it might be really useful.)

Meanwhile, I have also learned about OpenSpritz, a web-based implementation of Spritz. Can be a good match for speedread!

    Im or her guaranteed it could be possible…. however, you could be better off using the VMware Electronic SAN and native safe-keeping inside the ESXi website hosts for like that…. or even makes use of the HOURSE POWER P4000 VSA software… both are good solutions intended for just which.
