To practice cleaning data in R, I decided to build a Simpsons quote generator. First, I collected quotes from episode transcripts on the internet then I cleaned and sorted them into a dataframe. My goal is to create a simple web interface to generate random quotes or search for specific quotes.

To do

  • write script to scrape html for the first few seasons from
  • write script to clean and separate quotes, speakers, episode title from the raw html into a list of lists
  • convert the quote lists to a dataframe, then convert and save as a JSON file
  • write simple web page to query JSON file and return random quote
  • refactor code to parse json entry for one-name speaker
  • build user input forms such as number of quotes, season, and episode
  • manipulate json query to filter for user requests

You can now visit this project on git hub pages.
