Link: Orange Textable

There’s a new visual programming interface (language?) for text analysis in town and it’s [Orange Textable][]: “Orange Textable is an open-source add-on bringing advanced text-analytical functionalities to the Orange Canvas visual programming environment (itself open-source). It essentially enables users to build data tables on the basis of text data, by means of a flexible and intuitive interface.” Looking through the documentation, it reminds me of something like the [MEANDRE/SEASR][] infrastructure/application setup from the NCSA (National Center for Supercomputing Applications) a few years ago. (The project has disappeared from both the NCSA and the I-CHASS sites.)
