Zotero Voyant Export
Export your Zotero collections to Voyant.
Voyant is "a web-based text analysis and reading environment" that lets you visualize the content of a text corpus. Zotero is a "a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources." This translator aims to help those with preexisting Zotero collections get a new view on their data via Voyant.
- Zotero Standalone 5.0 or higher; note that the beta will irreversibly upgrade your database (!), so take care to backup beforehand.
- a collection containing full texts (as PDFs, HTML snapshots, etc.)
Download the latest release of the XPI (click "Save Link As..." if in Firefox). Then open Zotero Standalone and select the Tools menu -> Add-ons. Click the gear icon in the upper right and select "Install Add-On From File..."; open the XPI file you just saved.
Right-click on the collection you wish to analyze. Select "Export Collection to Voyant..." and choose a save location for the corpus as a zip file.
Upload the resulting zip to voyant-tools.org (or to your local Voyant server -- for collections larger than a handful of documents, you'll probably want to host locally). You should then be able to see your corpus in the default Voyant view.
This is a work-in-progress. Please see the initial release project for an indication of what has been/will be done. Help is very welcome!
