Display word count in real time?

This is how I’m currently displaying the word and character count of a rich text input:
The problem with this approach is that it’s slow to update, and you have to stop typing in order for the word count number to change.
I’m aware of the Countable plugin here theCountable Plugin | Bubble which would solve my problem but I’m trying to reduce my dependency on third party plugins, and this plugin can’t be forked.
Does anyone know how to achieve the same result without using the plugin above? Perhaps using backend workflows? :slight_smile:

Input Watcher plugin then do your count on the plugin element’s value instead

I like this approach Duracel ! Thanks for sharing.
Generally speaking, I try to avoid plugins unless strictly necessary and your approach above works just fine for my purpose.
Cheers !
