Zoomable sunburst with updating data

I combined Mike Bostock's Zoomable Sunburst and Sunburst Partition examples, so that I could have both zooming and updating the underlying data (between count and size, in this case). A simple combination of the examples does not work; you have to edit the arcTween function used for updating the data, so that when it redraws the partition layout, it takes account of the current zoom level by adjusting the domain of the x scale.

Click on any arc to zoom in, and click on the center circle to zoom out. Use the Size/Count radio buttons to update the data.

What this code does and why

This code makes a "poem" via choosing lines at random from a book of phrases - in particular, it uses "Fifteen Thousand Useful Phrases" by Grenville Kleiser, which it downloads from Project Gutenberg.

Inspired by other computer-generated short texts, like Allison Parrish's Twitter bots, I was curious whether I could generate some poetry that seemed vaguely plausible, purely by using a random approach - without having to do any natural language processing or machine learning. To do that I needed a text to choose lines from, where the individual lines were already readable English, and would have a reasonable chance of making some sense when rearranged at random.

Interesting outputs

Here are a few example outputs that I thought could pass as human-written poetry (not necessarily good poetry):

p5.js sketch that uses clmtrackr to capture eye position and draw trails representing that over time

p5.js sketch that finds eye positions from the webcam and draws a representation of their movement, with random colors for the irises.

This sketch was very helpful in getting started with clmtrackr 🙏
