April Project: Meta-Datasets for OCR

tl;dr: https://github.com/JosephCatrambone/PyTorchTextOverlayDataset

TextOverlayDataset is a pip-installable package which generates text images from text and image datasets. For a simple project, it turned out to be surprisingly involved. I would mark April as largely a success, though the delivery landed after the two-week mark I set for myself. The project also bled over (or, rather, had outside involvement which led me to revisit it) into May, which is much less fortunate. Nonetheless, I’m happy with the project and will keep working on it as time allows.
