I’m sure some of you are participating in this year’s National Novel
Month (http://www.nanowrimo.org). I’ve taken the liberty to build a
interface to their Word Count API, allowing the user to download the
wordcount, name, and wordcount history for any NaNoWriMo participant.
The gem is available here: http://rubyforge.org/projects/wordcount/
I’ve included two little examples, one of which is using _why’s Camping
framework and Gruff to produce some pretty graphs.
You can see a live example here (http://www.styledbits.com/nanowrimo),
it is currently blank until the contest starts on Nov 1.
If you aren’t currently participating, give the site a read over.
Happy novel writing,
