A Node-RED node that scores incoming words using the AFINN-165 wordlist and attaches a sentiment.score property to the msg.
NOTE: There is also a multi-language version available - node-red-node-multilang-sentiment.
This is a node that should be installed by default by Node-RED so you should not have to install it manually. If you do then run the following command in your Node-RED user directory - typically
npm install node-red-node-sentiment
Uses the AFINN-165 wordlist to attempt to assign scores to words in text.
msg.sentiment to the msg and within that
msg.sentiment.score holds the score.
A score greater than zero is positive and less than zero is negative. The score typically ranges from -5 to +5, but can go higher and lower.
