Let’s make this happen while you wait for ‘npm install’

@gsimone it's funny, especially that cli-typer has no dependencies so you can run it without npm install x)

@qwhex That's a missed occasion to run cli-typer ( this is getting too meta 😄)
@_balzss do you have any plans to gamify this by adding social rankings etc? It'd be cool to play a thing liked that on the terminal..

@amrith That's a really great idea! Do you have any specific suggestions to make this happen? Maybe global leader boards or country specific rankings?
@amrith @_balzss Maybe you can integrate with typeracer?

If you have node installed its definitely worth a try! Maybe its easier for Mac and Linux users who are accustomed to terminal apps, but you can install it on Windows as well.

Pros:

lightweight, easy to use, convenient, multi-platform (js), customizable

Cons:

terminal-only
