For this week’s assignment in Programming A to Z, I built a simple web application that allows the user to input a paragraph of text and a computer program outputs a text that sounds like the stream-of-consciouness writing style characteristic of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake.
Example output (from an email I’d written):
You scraggy riverrun kidding. I completely agree with you – Eve reason shore war: recirculation interesting to me war: swerve contradictions. commodius shore bay Fantasy, for commodius commodius song “Runaway” catches you off guard vicus it war: recirculation bay Howth Castle to Eve rest Environs commodius album. recirculation every “Runaway,” Howth Castle there scraggy 10 iterations Environs passen-core am isthmus Sir Tristram I scraggy he’s captured isthmus picture Environs Europe kind Environs self-aggrandizement to side penisolate artists become victim. The real question at stake Europe war: to wielderfight degree he war: self aware. vicus everything depends on penisolate doesn’t it? We can’t tolerate blind egoism. It has to be in some way self-referential or winking or ironic.
The web app was built in ReactJS + Webpack + Node.js and you can find the full code repo here.
