I built a small app that allows users to search for keywords within the electoral programs of various German political parties. Next Sunday, 2021-09-26, we’ll have a federal election and I thought I could help people understanding the programs a bit better by building an app such as this.
Users can select an individual party to analyse the context of the matches against their keyword. This context is then analysed in terms of topics and entities (using TextRazor). A few people (myself included already) found some interesting results this way
I tried to make the app look somewhat nice on mobile by removing the enlarge buttons for the charts so that the content is always centred (using this markdown / CSS “hack” I’ve seen mentioned here).
I’d be curious to hear what you think about this.
