Tracery

Short description from the website "Tracery is a super-simple tool and language to generate text, by GalaxyKate. It's been used by middle school students, humanities professors, indie game developers, professional bot makers, and lots of regular people, too."

  • PROS:
    • wide variability and a lot of creative use cases.
    • Open Source Javascript library
  • CONS:
    • basic coding skills required

Use cases

Students can experiment with procedural generation of text and build:

  • a story generator,
  • twitterbots,
  • news headline generators of a particular journal (parody - media education)
  • critically imitate rethorical Twitter statements of a public figure of their own choice

How to use it
