Default Bug#646059: ITP: speedpad -- ncurses tool to test, train, and increase typing speed

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: John Feuerstein <john@feurix.com>

* Package name : speedpad
Version : 1.0
Upstream Author : John Feuerstein <john@feurix.com>
* URL : http://feurix.org/projects/speedpad/
* License : GPLv3
Programming Lang: Python
Description : ncurses tool to test, train, and increase typing speed

Speedpad is a small and portable, ncurses powered tool to test, train, and
increase typing speed on arbitrary text input:

* designed for intermediate to advanced level typists
* assumes that you have already learned how to touch type
* no lessons, no single words, no synthetic stuff
* tab expansion, auto indentation and syntax support to train on code
* reference speed robot (defaults to 100 WPM)
* supports CPS, CPM, WPM, PPM, and CPH/KPH metrics
* shows detailed statistics about speed and typos
* helps to find and eliminate frequent typos

Speedpad uses fortune(6) to generate quotes if no input is provided. It
dumps statistics to standard output in machine-readable format. This can
be used to visualize your progress using tools like gnuplot(1).

If you want to learn touch typing, have a look at gtypist(1) instead. If
you want to play typing games, have a look at tuxtype(1) and typespeed(1).
