Stylecloud in Python (Tutorial)

Stylecloud is a Python package that helps in creating beautiful word clouds in just a few lines of code. You can use this Python package to create unique and amazing word clouds from your textual data in just two lines of code. In this article, I will take you through a tutorial on Stylecloud in Python.

What is Stylecloud in Python?

The Stylecloud is a Python package that helps you to create amazing word clouds from your textual data in just two lines of code. A word cloud is an amazing data visualization tool that is used to understand the context of the text. It represents the most occurring words in a dataset by visualizing them the largest among all the words in a dataset and represents the less occurring words by visualizing them the smallest among all the words in a dataset.

You can go through a complete tutorial on visualizing word clouds using Python from here. In the section below, I will take you through how to create amazing word clouds in just 2 lines of code by using the Stylecloud package in Python.

I hope you now have understood what are word clouds and why we visualize them while working on a data science task. If you have never used this Python package before then you can easily install it by using the pip command; pip install stylecloud. Now let’s see how to use the Stylecloud package in Python to create amazing word clouds in just two lines of code:

import stylecloud as sc
sc.gen_stylecloud(
    file_path = 'challenge.txt', output_name = 'ch.png'
)

After running the above code, you will be having an image saved by the name that you have given in the “output_name” parameter. Below is the output image that I got after running the above code on the dataset that I am using in this tutorial.
