Sentiment Analysis for Reddit Threads

Nick Milazzo created this chrome extension that performs a sentiment analysis for any reddit comment thread. The extension is manually scraping the comment data off of reddit's DOM by using content scripts. This data is then fed into the Sentiment npm library. All of this data is gathered, summarized, and displayed in the popup window for the extension. Just click the SA logo in the toolbar.

The summarized data includes a total score, average score, negative/positive word clouds using the d3 library, and negative/positive token tables. A basic profanity filter is implemented just for the word clouds and token tables.
