Abydos NLP/IR library

Project Description

Abydos NLP/IR library
Copyright 2014-2015 by Chris Little

This library contains code I’m using for research, in particular dissertation research & experimentation.


  • Numpy


  • PylibLZMA (Python 2 only–for LZMA compression string distance metric)

Suggested for testing & QA:

  • Nose (for unit testing)
  • (for code coverage checking)
  • Pylint (for code quality checking)
  • PEP8 (for code quality checking)

To build/install/unittest in Python 2:

sudo python install
nosetests -v --with-coverage --cover-erase --cover-html --cover-branches --cover-package=abydos .

To build/install/unittest in Python 3:

sudo python3 install
nosetests3 -v --with-coverage --cover-erase --cover-html --cover-branches --cover-package=abydos .

For pylint testing, run:

pylint --rcfile=pylint.rc abydos > pylint.log
