This is the first article of a series on NLG (Natural Language Generation) design patterns. These articles describe common situations encountered when implementing NLG systems, and how you should deal with it.

A sample implementation is given using open-source RosaeNLG, but the same approach applies with any template based NLG system, like CoreNLG or Yseop.

This car is ideal for a family, is practical for long travels and consumes less than 5 l per 100 km.

or in:

This car is is ideal for…

RosaeNLG is an open-source Natural Language Generation (NLG) library written in JavaScript. Using RosaeNLG, you can add narratives to your Power BI dashboards in English, French, German or Italian. Texts are rendered locally in the dashboard, without any API call.

This article explains why NLG is useful for Power BI dashboards, and how to build narratives in Power BI using RosaeNLG.

Why use NLG in dashboards

Natural Language Generation (NLG) can be used to analyse data dynamically in a dashboard, and summarize that data in a textual narrative.

Power BI dashboards are composed of nice graphics: bars, pie charts, maps etc. While graphics are nice…

RosaeNLG is an open-source Natural Language Generator (NLG) written in JavaScript. Shipped as a npm package or as a plain JavaScript library, it can be used server side in any node.js application, or client side for browser rendering. But now you can also run it in a Java Virtual Machine — with or without Docker.

For an introduction on RosaeNLG, see Introducing RosaeNLG, an open-source Natural Language Generation library.

As it is written in JavaScript, RosaeNLG is primarily designed to run within a node.js server or a browser. Still, some users are reluctant to use node.js in production for security…

RosaeNLG is an open-source (Apache 2.0) Natural Language Generation (NLG) library written in JavaScript, based on the Pug template engine. It supports any language and is currently shipped with resources for English, French, German, Italian and Spanish languages.

RosaeNLG is the first open-source NLG library which is easy to use and complete enough to write real life NLG applications. It can be run both server side (node.js) and client side, in a browser.

What is NLG?

NLG stands for Natural Language Generation. …
