NAME - App::WIoZ ^

App::WIoZ - a perl word cloud generator

VERSION ^

version 0.004

DESCRIPTION ^

App::WIoZ can create a SVG or PNG image of a word cloud from a simple text file with word;weight.

App::WIoZ is an acronym for "Words for Io by Zeus", look for the Correggio painting to watch the cloud.

App::WIoZ is based on Wordle strategy and yawc perl clone.

Usage:

  my $File = 'words.txt';

  my $wioz = App::WIoZ->new(
    font_min => 18, font_max => 64,
    set_font => "DejaVuSans,normal,bold",
    filename => "testoutput",
    basecolor => '226666'); # violet

  if (-f $File) {
    my @words = $wioz->read_words($File);
    $wioz->do_layout(@words);
  }
  else {
    $wioz->chg_font("LiberationSans,normal,bold");
    $wioz->update_colors('testoutput.sl.txt');
  }

watch doc/freq.pl to create a words.txt file.

STATUS ^

App::WIoZ is actually a POC to play with Moose, Cairo or Math::PlanePath.

The use of an Hilbert curve to manage free space is for playing with Math::PlanePath modules.

Performance can be improved in free space matching, or in spiral strategy to find free space.

Max and min font sizes can certainly be computed.

Feel free to clone this project on GitHub.

SETTINGS ^

height

image height, default to 600

width

image width, default to 800

font_min, font_max

required min and max font size

set_font, chg_font, font

accessors for font name, type and weight

set_font : set font in new WIoZ object, default is 'LiberationSans,normal,bold'

chg_font : change font

font : read font object

Usage :

  $wioz = App::WIoZ->new( font_min => 18, font_max => 64,
                          set_font => 'DejaVuSans,normal,bold');
  
  $fontname = $wioz->font->{font};
  $wioz->chg_font('LiberationSans,normal,bold');

filename

file name output, extension .png or .svg will be added

svg

produce a svg output, default value

set to 0 to write a png

scale

Scale for the Hilbert Curve granularity default to 10

Higer value produces better speed but more words recovery.

basecolor

Base color for color theme, default to 882222

METHODS ^

read_words

read words form file : word;weight

Usage: my @words = $wioz->read_words($File);

update_colors

Read words position from file and update colors.

Usage:

   $wioz->update_colors("file.sl.txt");

do_layout

Compute words position, save result to svg or png image, save in filename.sl.txt words positions to update colors.

Usage : $wioz->do_layout(@words);
