Python access to AlchemyAPI for unstructured text analysis and natural language processing.

Project Description

This is a Python implementation of the AlchemyAPI SDK.


To install this module, copy the file into your desired Python import directory. Three AlchemyAPI Python modules are supplied: 1. Version for Python 2.4.x (requires lxml) 2. Version for Python 2.5.x+ (supports all later 2.x versions, including 2.7.x) 3. Version for Python 3.x.x


Several code examples are included to illustrate using the AlchemyAPI for named entity extraction, text classification, language identification, and other tasks.

All code samples are within the “example” directory.

To run these code samples you must first edit the (example/api_key.txt) file, adding your assigned Orchestr8 API key.
