You probably want to see some code by now, so here’s an example:
from pytagcloud import create_tag_image, make_tags from pytagcloud.lang.counter import get_tag_counts YOUR_TEXT = "A tag cloud is a visual representation for text data, typically\ used to depict keyword metadata on websites, or to visualize free form text." tags = make_tags(get_tag_counts(YOUR_TEXT), maxsize=120) create_tag_image(tags, 'cloud_large.png', size=(900, 600), fontname='Lobster')
More examples can be found in test.py.
