Boring Tales From Tiny Places

This is really an attempt to teach myself:

  1. a bit more Javascript than the pitiful amount I already know
  2. How the RiTa text library works.

The basic structure:

  • I generate a Tiny Scenario(TM) using Tracery, as per my various Twitter bots.
  • I identify the emoji characters in them.
  • I set up some kind of templated exposition for the 'story'.
  • I attribute some emotions and actions to the characters.
  • I have the characters ramble at each other with Markov chains, using a genre-appropriate text source.
  • Punchline.
  • Fin.

I make some apologies for the extremely poor quality of my code, but not too many. Learning!
