If statistical natural language processing with AFINN seems too simple for you, you could use machine learning to make your own sentiment analysis library. I thought you were an open-source freak, what's all this about Google Natural Language API?

Being open-source freak doesn't mean being 10 times developer :D

I wanted to make an action that is not expensive and can be used by others. This is why I added basic library to it and also integrated with with cheap Google API that in theory does things better. I was also thinking about adding integration with Microsoft's Content Moderator API but only in case pleople ask for it, or I just notice over time that I get to many false-positives with Google.

I'm always standing in position that people should first use what is available and then write their own solution as a last resort.
