Installing this theme component will add a stopwatch to the top of a topic. A tag specified in the theme settings will establish which topics the stopwatch will appear.
There are three settings. You must add a single tag name to associate with a stopwatch. In this example I use a tag called “speed-read.”
IMPORTANT: You must be running Discourse Version 2.0.0.beta4 or later for this theme component to work.
This theme component was inspired by the discussion found here:
The usefulness of this theme component is very niche I imagine, but hopefully it will end up helping a few people either for what it is, or as example code.
Some ideas where it could be applied in a forum:
- Some type of quiz/test practice
- Speed-reading exercises
- Public speaking practice
As of now, it does not save the time after leaving the topic.
Please feel free to post if there are any questions, problems, or suggestions!
