Sdcb.WordCloud NuGet

English | 简体中文

Sdcb.WordCloud is a versatile, cross-platform library for generating word cloud images, SVGs, or JSON data based on word frequencies. It harnesses the power of SkiaSharp for graphical operations, ensuring high performance and quality without relying on System.Drawing. This makes it an excellent choice for applications running across various platforms, including server-side scenarios where GUI libraries might not be available.

Key Features

  • Cross-platform compatibility: Works across different operating systems without dependency on System.Drawing.
  • Multiple output formats: Supports generating word clouds as images, SVGs, or JSON data.
  • Flexible configuration: Customize your word clouds with various options, including text orientations, fonts, and masks.
  • Open-source: Freely available under the MIT license, welcoming contributions and modifications.

Installation

To start using Sdcb.WordCloud in your project, install it via NuGet:

dotnet add package Sdcb.WordCloud

Usage Example

Below are some examples showcasing different capabilities of the Sdcb.WordCloud library. Note: The demonstrations use a shared word frequency list, as provided in the method MakeDemoScore().

Example 1: Different Text Orientations

This example demonstrates creating word clouds with 5 different text orientations.

void Main()
{
    TextOrientations[] orientations = 
    [
        TextOrientations.PreferHorizontal, // default
        TextOrientations.PreferVertical, 
        TextOrientations.HorizontalOnly,
        TextOrientations.VerticalOnly, 
        TextOrientations.Random,
    ];
    foreach (var o in orientations)
    {
        WordCloud wc = WordCloud.Create(new WordCloudOptions(600, 600, MakeDemoScore())
        {
            TextOrientation = o,
        });
        byte[] pngBytes = wc.ToSKBitmap().Encode(SKEncodedImageFormat.Png, 100).AsSpan().ToArray();
        File.WriteAllBytes($"{o}.png", pngBytes);
    }
}

Example 2: Converting Word Cloud to JSON and Back

Generate a word cloud, convert it to JSON, and then reconstruct it to demonstrate the flexibility of manipulating word cloud data.

void Main()
{
    WordCloud wc = WordCloud.Create(new WordCloudOptions(900, 900, MakeDemoScore())
    {
        FontManager = new FontManager([SKTypeface.FromFamilyName("Times New Roman")]),
        Mask = MaskOptions.CreateWithForegroundColor(SKBitmap.Decode(
            new HttpClient().GetByteArrayAsync("https://io.starworks.cc:88/cv-public/2024/alice_mask.png").GetAwaiter().GetResult()),
            SKColors.White)
    });
    string json = wc.ToJson();
    Console.WriteLine(json);

    // can convert back from generated json
    WordCloud wc2 = WordCloud.FromJson(json);
    File.WriteAllText($"json-convert-back.svg", wc2.ToSvg());
}

Note: This example illustrates how a word cloud's data can be stored in and reconstructed from JSON, enabling easy sharing and modification.

Example 3: Applying a Mask

Creating a word cloud with a mask, allowing words to fill a specific shape.

void Main()
{
    WordCloud wc = WordCloud.Create(new WordCloudOptions(900, 900, MakeDemoScore())
    {
        FontManager = new FontManager([SKTypeface.FromFamilyName("Times New Roman")]),
        Mask = MaskOptions.CreateWithForegroundColor(SKBitmap.Decode(
            new HttpClient().GetByteArrayAsync("https://io.starworks.cc:88/cv-public/2024/alice_mask.png").GetAwaiter().GetResult()),
            SKColors.White)
    });
    byte[] pngBytes = wc.ToSKBitmap().Encode(SKEncodedImageFormat.Png, 100).AsSpan().ToArray();
    File.WriteAllBytes($"mask.png", pngBytes);
}

Example 4: Using a Specific Font

Demonstrates how to utilize a specific font for the word cloud generation.

void Main()
{
    WordCloud wc = WordCloud.Create(new WordCloudOptions(600, 600, MakeDemoScore())
    {
        FontManager = new FontManager([SKTypeface.FromFamilyName("Consolas")])
    });
    byte[] pngBytes = wc.ToSKBitmap().Encode(SKEncodedImageFormat.Png, 100).AsSpan().ToArray();
    File.WriteAllBytes($"specified-font.png", pngBytes);
}

Example 5: Generating SVG Output

Shows how to generate an SVG from a word cloud, useful for web applications where scalability is crucial.

void Main()
{
    WordCloud wc = WordCloud.Create(new WordCloudOptions(900, 900, MakeDemoScore())
    {
        FontManager = new FontManager([SKTypeface.FromFamilyName("Times New Roman")]),
        Mask = MaskOptions.CreateWithForegroundColor(SKBitmap.Decode(
            new HttpClient().GetByteArrayAsync("https://io.starworks.cc:88/cv-public/2024/alice_mask.png").GetAwaiter().GetResult()),
            SKColors.White)
    });
    File.WriteAllText($"json-convert-back.svg", wc.ToSvg());
    //new Svg(wc.ToSvg(), wc.Width, wc.Height).Dump();
}

Shared Word Frequency List

All examples use the following word frequency list:
