Steps:

Install

Composer
Run the following to include this via Composer
composer require davmixcool/php-sentiment-analyzer

Simple Usage

Use Sentiment\Analyzer;
$analyzer = new Analyzer();
$output_text = $analyzer->getSentiment("David is smart, handsome, and funny.");
$output_emoji = $analyzer->getSentiment("😁");
$output_text_with_emoji = $analyzer->getSentiment("Aproko doctor made me 🤣.");
print_r($output_text);
print_r($output_emoji);
print_r($output_text_with_emoji);

Simple Outputs

David is smart, handsome, and funny. ---------------- ['neg'=> 0.0, 'neu'=> 0.337, 'pos'=> 0.663, 'compound'=> 0.7096]
😁 ------------------- ['neg' => 0, 'neu' => 0.5, 'pos' => 0.5, 'compound' => 0.4588]
Aproko doctor made me 🤣 ------------- ['neg' => 0, 'neu' => 0.714, 'pos' => 0.286, 'compound' => 0.4939]

Advanced Usage

You can now dynamically update the VADER (Valence) lexicon on the fly for words that are not in the dictionary. See the Example below:
Use Sentiment\Analyzer;
$sentiment = new Sentiment\Analyzer();
$strings = [
'Weather today is rubbish',
'This cake looks amazing',
'His skills are mediocre',
'He is very talented',
'She is seemingly very agressive',
'Marie was enthusiastic about the upcoming trip. Her brother was also passionate about her leaving - he would finally have the house for himself.',
'To be or not to be?',
];
//new words not in the dictionary
$newWords = [
'rubbish'=> '-1.5',
'mediocre' => '-1.0',
'agressive' => '-0.5'
];
//Dynamically update the dictionary with the new words
$sentiment->updateLexicon($newWords);
//Print results
foreach ($strings as $string) {
// calculations:
$scores = $sentiment->getSentiment($string);
// output:
echo "String: $string\n";
print_r(json_encode($scores));
echo "<br>";
}
