v0.1.1 Public


A CFML wrapper for the Aylien API. Access Aylien's Natural Language Processing (NLP) API to extract meaning and insight from textual content.

This is a very early stage API wrapper. Feel free to use the issue tracker to report bugs or suggest improvements!


This project borrows heavily from the API frameworks built by jcberquist, such as xero-cfml and aws-cfml. Because it draws on those projects, it is also licensed under the terms of the MIT license.

writeDump( entities );
