WordCram 0.5.5 released

This release is mostly a fix for issue #4. dbasch couldn’t make a word cloud, because cue.language couldn’t decide what language his text was in. Next time cue gets confused, instead of stopping the whole show, WordCram will gracefully ignore it, and include the word.

I also made public some classes that weren’t before: BBTree, BBTreeBuilder, and WordShaper. If you’d like to make Processing sketches that do overlap-checking like WordCram does, but your shapes aren’t necessarily words, these might help you; you can see how they’re used by looking at the code in the WordCramEngine class. (Making them public also makes it easier for me to experiment with changing WordCram’s layout algorithms.)

As usual, you can download the new version at github. Happy word cramming!

  1. Just starting to play with this library, any idea why I get an ArrayIndex out of bounds exception when I try to load a text file with only single letters?

    My goal is trying to use my (very limited) processing knowledge to size and place random letters on the canvas, without overlap. Any help there would be great.
