How to create a word cloud from text piped via STDIN

There’s a word_cloud generator package available from PyPI that can take its source text from STDIN:

cat the-bible.txt | wordcloud_cli --imagefile bible.png

For fun, you can create a word cloud of all your commit subjects from a repo:

git log --author="$AUTHOR" --no-merges --format="%s" | \
    wordcloud_cli --background=white --imagefile=commits.png

which, for this repo, yields:

A word cloud of commits.
