Monkeytype is a minimalistic and customizable typing test. It features many test modes, an account system to save your typing speed history, and user-configurable features such as themes, sounds, a smooth caret, and more. Monkeytype attempts to emulate the experience of natural typing during a typing test, by unobtrusively presenting the text prompts and displaying typed characters in-place, providing straightforward, real-time feedback on typos, speed, and accuracy.


  • minimalistic design, with optional advertisements and focus mode while typing
  • type what you see, see what you type
  • live errors, wpm, and accuracy displays
  • variety of test lengths and languages
  • punctuation and numbers modes
  • quotes
  • themes
  • smooth caret
  • account system
  • challenges and just-for-fun test modifiers
  • and much more

Discord bot

On the Monkeytype Discord server, we added a Discord bot to auto-assign optional roles based on typing performance and challenge completion. You can find its code over at
