Robocoap: Text ⇢ Gephi

RobocoapAs promised in the Don Quijote de la Network post, I Just packaged the R code that generated the data used in Gephi to visualize the network graphs describing Don Quijote.

Now it should be fairly simple (or at least simpler) for anybody to generate such graphs for their favorite books. And since the package automatizes the process like if a robot was collecting the coappearances of elements within a text, its name came to be… Robocoap.

For now the package has just one function (novel.coap) intended for books with a novel format. With minor work, and down the road, the package will also handle theater plays & movie scripts formats and, with a little bit more of work, collections of research papers. Until then, enjoy your novels and have fun!
