RiTa.js: a generative language toolkit for JavaScript

The RiTa website

RiTa.js is designed to an easy-to-use toolkit for experiments in natural language and generative literature, based on the original RiTa library for Java. RiTa.js works alone or in conjunction with p5.js, processing.js, node.js, bower, or browserify. All RiTa and RiTa.js tools are free/libre/open-source according to the GPL.

About the project


 

A simple sketch


Create a new file on your desktop called 'test.html' and download the latest rita.js from here, add the following lines, save and drag it into a browser:

<html>
  <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="./rita.min.js"></script>
  <script>
    window.onload = function() {
      $('#content').text(RiTa.tokenize("The elephant took a bite!"));
    };
  </script>
  <div id="content" width=200 height=200></div>
<html>

With node.js and npm


To install: $ npm install rita

var rita = require('rita');
var rs = rita.RiString("The elephant took a bite!");
console.log(rs.features());

With p5.js


Create a new file on your desktop called 'test.html' and download the latest rita.js from here, add the following lines, save and drag it into a browser:

<html>
  <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/p5.js/0.4.3/p5.min.js"></script>
  <script src="./rita.min.js"></script>
  <script>
  function setup() {

    createCanvas(200,200);
    background(50);
    textSize(20);
    noStroke();

    var words = RiTa.tokenize("The elephant took a bite!")
    for (var i=0, j = words.length; i<j; i++) {
        text(words[i], 50, 50 + i*20);
    }
  }
  </script>
</html>

With browserify and npm


Install browserify (if you haven't already)

$ sudo npm install -g browserify

Create a file called 'main.js' with the following code:

require('rita');

var rs = RiString("The elephant took a bite!");
console.log(rs.features());

Now install RiTa

$ npm install rita

Now use browserify to pack all the required modules into bundle.js

$ browserify main.js -o bundle.js

Create create a file called 'test.html' with a single script tag as below, then open it in a web browser and check the output in the 'Web Console'

<script src="bundle.js"></script>

With bower


Install bower (if you haven't already)

$ sudo npm install -g bower

Choose a directory and do:

$ bower install rita

Now, create a file called 'test.html', add the following lines, save, and open in a browser:

<html>
  <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="./bower_components/rita/dist/rita.min.js"></script>
  <script>
    window.onload = function() {
      $('#content').text(RiTa.tokenize("The elephant took a bite!"));
    };
  </script>
  <div id="content" width=200 height=200></div>
<html>

With processing.js


Create a new file on your desktop called 'test.html' and download the latest rita.js from here, add the following lines, save and drag it into a browser:

<html>
  <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/processing.js/1.4.8/processing.min.js"></script>
  <script src="./rita.min.js"></script>
  <script type="text/processing" data-processing-target="processing-canvas">
    void setup() {

      size(200,200);
      background(50);
      textSize(20);
      noStroke();

      String words = RiTa.tokenize("The elephant took a bite!");
      for (int i=0, j = words.length; i<j; i++) {
          text(words[i], 50, 50 + i*20);
      }
    }
  </script>
  <canvas id="processing-canvas"> </canvas>
</html>

    a. You can find a version of git for your OS here
    b. The easiest way to install npm is to install node.js
    c. You can install gulp via npm as follows:

      $ npm install -g gulp
  2. Fork and clone this library.

    a. First, login to github and fork the project
    b. Then, from a terminal/shell:

      $ git clone https://github.com/dhowe/RiTaJS.git
  3. Now navigate into the project folder and install dependencies via npm.

    $  cd RiTaJS && npm install
  4. To create the library from src, use gulp.

    $ gulp build
  5. Run all tests (in phantomJS) with gulp.

    $ gulp test
  6. Work on an existing issue, then submit a pull request...
