Word Count for entire vault

I’d like to be able to asses the number of words in all document files in a given vault.

Use case or problem

I use the whole of the vault as a project corpus, so need to know how much documentation exists throughout,

Proposed solution

As document count already exists, this just requires a loop through all vault word documents. The result can be displayed when the vault in context is shown.


I like the idea of being able to see the word cunt of documents that are not open. like showing them when hovering on links beside its content. I think if such a think added to folder/ file manager can do the function you are looking for. One can get the word count of every folder including the whole vault.

There’s a plugin that does exactly that. You can find it in the Community plugins browser. It’s called: “Better Word Count”.

thank you!

You’re welcome! :smiley:

The novel word count plugin shows the word count of the whole vault as well as individual files which I believe fits the description better than the better word count plugin
