Python package that spits out text from your document files!
THANK YOU FOR USING TEXTSPITTER!!
I created this little app to help me process documents from folder sets and batches. Instead of trying to determine each file type and process accordingly, I thought it would be more prudent to read file names and then route text extraction functions accordingly. Also, I was having a really difficult time getting textract/pdftotext to work because of damn Poppler. So instead of troubleshooting that whole process after 6+ hours, I figured this was more time-efficient.
This is my first python module, so I hope I did this well!
This module is designed to run as simply as possible. Just provide the file location string data into the argument, and get your text returned to you.
from TextSpitter import TexSpitter as TS import sqlite3 folder_loc = 'foo/bar/' # doc_file = folder_loc + 'file_thing.doc' docx_file = folder_loc + 'file_thing.docx' pdf_file = folder_loc + 'file_thing.pdf' text_file = folder_loc + 'file_thing.txt' doc_tup = (docx_file, pdf_file, text_file) # doc_tup = (doc_file, docx_file, pdf_file, text_file) # SQL code to write to database conn = sqlite3.connect('example_db') c= conn.cursor() STMNT = 'INSERT INTO doc_contents VALUE %s' # For Loop code to insert doc content into db for ele in doc_tup: text = TS(ele) c.executemany(STMNT, text) print('Done! Wrote the following to db: %s', (text[:25]))
