RiTa: A toolkit for natural language and computational literature

The RiTa website

RiTaJS is designed to an easy-to-use toolkit for experiments in natural language and generative literature, based on the RiTa (http://rednoise.org/rita) library for Java. Like the original RiTa, RiTaJS works alone or in conjunction with Processing(JS) and/or with its own Canvas renderer, and/or as a NodeJS module. All RiTa and RiTaJS tools are free/libre/open-source according to the GPL (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.txt).

Create a new file on your desktop called hello.html, add the following lines, save and drag it into a browser:

  <canvas id="canvas" width=200 height=200></canvas>
  <script src="http://rednoise.org/rita/download/rita-latest.min.js"></script>
window.onload = function() {

  // create a RiText and draw it

</script> <html>
