[Project Proposals] Do you mean what you mean when you mean?


For final project proposal I would love to explore more on my idea of “blogno”, post the opposite words of what you mean, contiune my midterm idea.

I was inspired by how some people act totally different when they are online vs in their real life, and how many people just tell their own privacy online, either of them, to me, is a so called “healthy” attitude. Is our identity online a fake identity or just anther part of ourselves?

With the technique we learned during the class, I was thinking maybe to build a blog that find the antonym of the input data, so “I am happy” will be post out as  ” I am unhappy”.

I tried to work with antonym API first, here is the sketch I built first in P5, just to test out the API.

Here is how the logic goes :

User input — split string with ” “, make sentences into words — output words data to antonym API — do the if(), if the antonym exsit, go for antonym[0], else, return the previous word –find the index of the word with antonym and replace with antonym [0] –print out

Those are the texts I made,  that all the words went through a API, the word analysis parts work like this

  1. Finds the antomy for those inputted word, and replaced original with antomy.
  2. If there is no antomy, it stays the same word.
  3. If the word is not a English word, like my name Siman, just let it go, do not stuck.



What I would love to try with final project is to explore more on the website building part.


I am also excited to try with the style part, recently I am addicted to Vaporwave ,  those unrealisim practice may suit my page pretty well?
