WPM Calculation

The WPM feature uses time between keystrokes to compute a rolling average words per minute rate and makes this available for various uses.

Enable the WPM system by adding this to your rules.mk:


For split keyboards using soft serial, the computed WPM score will be available on the master AND slave half.

Public Functions

uint8_t get_current_wpm(void); This function returns the current WPM as an unsigned integer.

Customized keys for WPM calc

By default, the WPM score only includes letters, numbers, space and some punctuation. If you want to change the set of characters considered as part of the WPM calculation, you can implement wpm_keycode_user(uint16_t keycode) and return true for any characters you would like included in the calculation, or false to not count that particular keycode.
