Simple sentiment analysis for the German language
# use this to init with the default dictionaries stimmung = Stimmung.new # or this to init with your dictionaries stimmung = Stimmung.new('my_dict1.txt', 'my_dict2.txt', '...') # you can always load additional dictionaries later on with stimmung.load_dictionary('my_dict.txt') # and to get an analysis you just do stimmung.score('irgendein toller text') # => 0.5066 # this score will be between -1 (super negative) and 1 (super positive)
The German dictionary is based on SentiWS.

You can use the crude importer script to import new files in case there is a new version. Hey why don't you open an issue or make a pull request when that happens too? It would be appreciated :)
gem install stimmung
