moon-grahams

A bayesion analyzer based on Paul Grahams essay on spam filtering found here http://www.paulgraham.com/spam.html

Written using Moonscript, a language that compiles in the Lua scripting language. Can be found here http://moonscript.org/

Installation

You can install the latest version using moonrocks

moonrocks install moongrahams

Usage

Here is an example of how you might load data into a moon grahams filter

moongrahams = require('moongrahams')

local good, bad = moongrahams.Corpus(), moongrahams.Corpus()
local filter = moongrahams.Filter()

good:processTextLine("Hi there I'm Zach.  Nice to meet you!")
bad:processTextLine("Extreme weight loss buy this revolutionary new product")

filter:load(good, bad)

Then to test the content, you do the following:

result = filter:analyze('Extreme Zach, Nice to be revolutionary')

if result.probability > 0.80 then
    print('This is spam!') --probability is between 0.0 and 1.0
end

The result of an analyze call also has a table of the words used to calculate the overall probability, ordered by how "interesting" they are. Interesting meaning how far each word's probability is from 0.5.

for i, pair in ipairs(result.words) do
    print(string.format('%-20s', pair.word), pair.probability)
end

See it in Action!

Bad sentiment contains tokens you want to filter against and good sentiment contains tokens you want to get through the filter. By default the data just uses good and bad movie reviews for the good and bad sentiment respectively.

To try it out, just run the test script provided in the repo, like so:

moon test.moon "the statement you are testing"
