Words are Wordier with Wordle

By NickLitten

Wordle is an excellent website for a some serious lunchtime cyberloafing. It basically takes any string of text, parses it and creates a nice little word-cloud graphic with the most used words.

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

It’s neat stuff, and gets even neater when you feed it a website address. Give it a URL and it looks at the whole website and comes up with a graphic of words used through the site and makes it look kind of… well… just funky.

This is what I get when I feed it https://www.nicklitten.com



Utterly stupid but good fun to play with while eating that lunchtime sandwich…
