I thought about creating a wordcloud of a complete blog history, so I build a script that connects to a MySQL database and grabs all published posts and pages. All articles are combined in an huge text, that, when purged from tags and special chars, is visualized as a wordcloud:
[cc lang=”rsplus” lines=”-1” file=”pipapo/R/wordpress-wordcloud.R”][/cc]
Enough code, here is the result for my slight blog:
Smart image, isn’t it? Unfortunately it takes about 30 secs to generate it, otherwise it would be cool to create such a cloud live, for example using rApache.
