Generate random sentences through markov chains

Project Description


Chattymarkov is a python module that lets you generate random sentences through a markov chain algorithm.

It is useful mostly for bots which are aimed at learning from user’s chat and generate totally w.t.f. answers.

The library can support multiple databases, especially redis which is quite suitable to store relevant information for markov chains.


pip install chattymarkov


From examples/

#!/usr/bin/env python3
from chattymarkov import ChattyMarkov

markov = ChattyMarkov("memory://")
markov.learn("My favorite animal is the crocodile")
markov.learn("The word animal is six letters long")

Here the markov instance learns two sentences (presumably gathered from a chat network such as IRC or Discord). What is interesting is that the ‘animal is’ sequence appears twice. So the generate() method, which returns a completely random result, may return an entirely built sentence which hasn’t been ever written by anyone:

$ ./
The word animal is the crocodile
$ ./memory
My favorite animal is six letters long

The more sentences, the funnier generated ones.

Supported databases

  • Redis (recommended): you can either provide a unix socket path (e.g. redis:///path/to/unix_socket.sock;db=0;password=foobar or a host:port (e.g redis://localhost:6739;db=0). Extra parameters are separated by semi-colons after the unix socket path / host:port descriptor.
  • JSON: you can provide a path to a file that will be formated with JSON. Example: json:///path/to/file.json
  • Memory: in-memory database, just provide `memory:// as a connect string.


If you want to add some support to a database or redesign the library, please make a pull request so we can discuss about it.
