A simple web app that counts the number of characters and words in a piece of text.

A few days ago I wanted to compose a series of posts on Mastodon (500 character limit) while on my phone, and tried to find a way to count the characters. I found somes websites that did it, all of them horribly cluttered and of course with ads. So… this. Plain HTML, CSS, JavaScript. Nice and simple.

It also lets you count in a text selection, has dark mode support, and auto-saves via the browser’s local storage.
