A desktop version of loklak wok is now available. The goal of the wok is to enable users to collect and parse data from social services like twitter and enable users, citizen scientists and companies to analyze big data.
The origin of the project is a tweet by @Frank_gamefreak. Thank you!
Please join the development on GitHub: https://github.com/loklak/loklak_wok_desktop
How to compile and run
- import required lib by running setup.sh
- compile with mvn clean install -Pexecutable-jar
- run artifact in target dircetory: java -jar wok-desktop-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT-jar-with-all-dependencies.jar
- stop program with ESC key
To be done
- The code has been hacked and butchered and is some kind of Frankenstein. It needs cleanup.
- Font size is hardcoded. How ugly is that?
- It would be cool to have a project for code shared between Android and Desktop version.
- The only dependency which can not be resolved via Maven is loklakj. Wouldn’t it be cool to change that?
- The used font does not seem to support Asian characters.
loklak has a built-in elasticsearch node, bit it can also connect as a transport client to a elasticsearch cluster. Here are some screenshots of elastic-hq of a 16-shard 8-disk 2-server 16-core loklak cluster.
From December 27-30 the 32C3 Chaos Communication Congress took place in Hamburg, Germany. Members of the FOSSASIA community met at the event to learn about the latest OpenTech hacks. We used the opportunity to work with mentors on our coding program for kids. See photos from our gathering here.

We now have a data parser to collect data, that you want to analyze. It is called loklak wok and runs on your android phone. The showcase collects tweet data for loklak.
Please check it out and test development!
