Online wordcount tool now supports PDF files

I’ve added support for PDF files to my online wordcount tool. Now the tool can provide word counts for PDF files using the pyPdf library.

Addendum: I’ve replaced pyPdf with another pure-python library, pdfminer, which is much more robust at handling PDF files.

Hi Rainer:

Unfortunately, I had to take it offline because some abusive users were overloading my server (this is why we can’t have nice things…). I will bring it back online when I have time to implement IP blocking.
