Clock using time quotes from the literature, based on work and idea by Jaap Meijers (E-reader clock).

The working site is in the docs/ folder, and can be visited at To run it locally you may need to serve docs/ with an HTTP server (e.g. python3 -m http.server) ... or just open index.html in Firefox (thanks @gbear605).

ℹ️ NB: Some quotes are potentially NSFW. See issue #11. To filter out (most) NSFW quotes, use the sfw query parameter. E.g.

Convert .csv quotes to .json quotes

Quotes are kept in litclock_annotated.csv. These are converted into a .json file for each minute with csv_to_json.R. To run the R script, install R and use the package manager, {packrat}, to install the correct version of the packages: packrat::restore().
