Spritzlet Clone
h
Vandesm14

I was disappointed that https://www.spritzlet.com/ wasn't totally free so I decided to make my own.

All you need to do is look at the red letter to read the words as they appear. Yeah, it's that easy. That's why I wanted to make a free system, even though it's not going to be updated fully until much later (see below).

Please Note
This isn't really a full system. It's only an attachment for another project I'm working on. Regardless, I felt I should share this so it can be remade into a complete clone of the original bookmarklet.

Am I doing something wrong here?

firefish

@Vandesm14 Looks like I didn't read the text properly... lol
Also, this is the first time I've heard of Spritzlet, which is why I was confused

Vandesm14

@firefish Oh lol

How does someone become a moderator?

Vandesm14

@HyperGamerStuds Basically, just report posts that don't comply with the guidelines.

[deleted]

then they got the moderator rank? @Vandesm14

Vandesm14

@HyperGamerStuds Mods are chosen by the Repl Team. We usually don't gain new mods quickly, so don't expect to get it right away. Persistence is key!

[deleted]

Okay :D @Vandesm14

[deleted]

and are there ever instances where a responsible, mature child, is chosen as a mod? @Vandesm14

Vandesm14

@HyperGamerStuds Sure, if they help out and report posts. Like I said, it's something that doesn't happen often so don't count on it.

Spacecraft

Wow, interesting timing! I'm currently working on this same exact project in Python.

Vandesm14

@Spacecraft Awesome! Be sure to @ me when it's done so I can take a look!

DynamicSquid

What's the algorithm? I'm assuming it's more complicated that just centering the text

Vandesm14

@DynamicSquid It's all just based on length, surprisingly.

DynamicSquid

@Vandesm14 oh okay

@Vandesm14 How do you cut the word to 13 letters without it not making sense?

Vandesm14

@EvokerKing Not sure. The original either cuts it off completely, or cuts it into two parts.

Hi @Vandesm14, great work!

Vandesm14

@rjlevy Thank you!

gibbsfreenergy

How does staring at a few colorful words help or do anything?

Vandesm14

@JosephSanthosh It allows you read faster and with a smaller screen footprint. It's a technology called RSVP. If you want to test yourself, just fork the repl and change the wpm to a higher value. It really does work.

gibbsfreenergy

Well I guess you have to practice many times to achieve this. @Vandesm14

Vandesm14

@JosephSanthosh A bit of practice I suppose ;)

ironblockhd

Cool!

Vandesm14

@ironblockhd Thanks!
