TADA - The Text as Data App

This repository contains all files of the Shiny application TADA - The Text as Data App. TADA is work in progress and its functionality will be constantly extended. Currently, the app allows you to upload textual data with document-level variables, get descriptive statistics of your text and to analyze the corpus using various text scaling techniques (Wordscores, Wordfish, Correspondence Analysis) or topic models. All results from this app can be downloaded easily. The app also allows you to visualize most of your models and produces publication ready graphics. Almost all of the text analysis functions avaialble in TADA are based on the quanteda R package. The implementation of LDA is based on the topicmodels package. All plots are based on ggplot2.

You can access the most recent stable version at: https://tada-gui.shinyapps.io/tada/.

When you have R installed, you can open the app on your local machine.

# install shiny package if it is not
if (!"shiny" %in% installed.packages()) {
  install.packages("shiny")
}

# load the shiny package
library(shiny)

# easiest way to load TADA is to use runGitHub
