WordCram: Open-Source Word Clouds for Processing

I just released a project I’ve been working on for a while, called WordCram.  As the title says, it’s a Processing library for generating word clouds.

I found wordle.net a few years ago and really liked it, and after seeing the code for Algirdas Rascius’ Scattered Letters on OpenProcessing.org, I tried making some of my own.  It was fun, but I thought it ran too slowly to bother bundling it into a Processing library.

After reading the Wordle chapter from Beautiful Visualization, I learned a few new tricks, and it’s a bit faster now, so here it is.  There’s still work to do, but that’s the fun part.
