Sentiment Analysis Visualization App

This project is an application that allows users to easily perform sentiment analysis on topics, brands and trending issues via the reddit API. Users can enter search parameters to retrieve a list of relevant reddit posts which can be selected. The comments of the selected post are processed and analyzed before graphs and visualizations are displayed in the user interface. Users can use button toggles to customize which graphs and charts are displayed on the dashboard. This dashboard can be used to gain insights into trending issues and news. The application was built using a flask backend to perform data gathering and processing and a reactJS frontend to create the user interface.
