Viralheat Sentiment API

You must have a Viralheat account and API key to access the Sentiment API.

Usage of the Module

Require the module

var vh_sentiment = require('viralheat-sentiment')('[Your API Key Here]');

Make a sentiment request

vh_sentiment.get('[text (360 characters or less) that you want to analyze]', function(err, data, status) {
    if(err) {
        // Error
    } else {
        console.log(data);
    }
});

Successful response will look like:

{
    text: 'Hello! I love this product!!',
    mood: 'positive',
    prob: 0.9372610796240683,
    raw: {
        status: 200,
        error: null,
        text: '\'Hello! I love this product!!\'',
        mood: '\'positive\'',
        prob: '0.93726107962406835'
    }
}

The object contained in the raw attribute is the response returned directly from the Viralheat Sentiment API.

Train the Sentiment Analyzer

vh_sentiment.train('[text you would like analyzed]', ['positive','negative', or 'neutral'], function(err, data, status) {
    if(err) {
        // Error
    } else {
        console.log(data);
    }
});

Standard response from a train request:

{"status":"ok"}
