Project Description

This package uses the underlying data from the program “gender” by Jorg Michael (described here). Its use is pretty straightforward:

>>> import sexmachine.detector as gender
>>> d = gender.Detector()
>>> d.get_gender(u"Bob")
u'male'
>>> d.get_gender(u"Sally")
u'female'
>>> d.get_gender(u"Pauley") # should be androgynous
u'andy'

The result will be one of andy (androgynous), male, female, mostly_male, or mostly_female. Any unknown names are considered andies. Moreover, you can set unknown value to whatever you want:

>>> d = gender.Detector(unknown_value=u"ferhat")
>>> d.get_gender(u"Pauley")
u'ferhat'

I18N is fully supported:

>>> d.get_gender(u"Álfrún")
u'female'

Additionally, you can give preference to specific countries:

>>> d.get_gender(u"Jamie")
u'mostly_female'
>>> d.get_gender(u"Jamie", u'great_britain')
u'mostly_male'

Additionally, you can create a detector that is not case sensitive (default is to be case sensitive):

>>> d = sexmachine.detector.Detector(case_sensitive=False)
>>> d.get_gender(u"sally")
u'female'
>>> d.get_gender(u"Sally")
u'female'

Try to avoid creating many Detectors, as each creation means reading the data file.
