The Social Media Macroscope (SMM) project presents SMILE (Social Media Intelligence and Learning Environment), a user-friendly and open-source science gateway for social media research. SMILE utilizes CIlogon, an identity management platform, for identity and access control and offers data collection from platforms like Twitter and Reddit, as well as features for natural language processing, sentiment analysis, network analysis, and machine learning classification. It adopts a microservice architecture with Docker containers for portability and scalability, deploying applications using Kubernetes and Helm charts. Additionally, SMILE enables seamless data sharing through integration with NCSA Clowder, a widely adopted framework in science gateways.
