    Thanks for your contribution Damyon. I tested the functionality and reviewed the code. Approving now.

    We showed this plugin to a faculty member and it doesn't provide the functionality they were expecting. They wanted to see a live update of the word count without having to press a button. Is that possible?

    You would have to poll the server on changes. It can't be done accurately from javascript because it depends on the php multibyte conversions etc.

    Updated to mark as compatible with all versions up to Moodle 3.2. There are no code changes.

    Watch out! For those who need an exact count, it seams as I the first word starting from the second line on don't get counted anymore:
