Sentiment analysis library for russian language


Please note that Dostoevsky supports only Python 3.6+ on both Linux and Windows

$ pip install dostoevsky

Social network model [FastText]

This model was trained on RuSentiment dataset and achieves up to ~0.71 F1 score.


First of all, you'll need to download binary model:

$ python -m dostoevsky download fasttext-social-network-model

Then you can use sentiment analyzer:

from dostoevsky.tokenization import RegexTokenizer
from dostoevsky.models import FastTextSocialNetworkModel

tokenizer = RegexTokenizer()
tokens = tokenizer.split('всё очень плохо')  # [('всё', None), ('очень', None), ('плохо', None)]

model = FastTextSocialNetworkModel(tokenizer=tokenizer)

messages = [
    'я люблю тебя!!',
    'малолетние дебилы'

results = model.predict(messages, k=2)

for message, sentiment in zip(messages, results):
    # привет -> {'speech': 1.0000100135803223, 'skip': 0.0020607432816177607}
    # люблю тебя!! -> {'positive': 0.9886782765388489, 'skip': 0.005394937004894018}
    # малолетние дебилы -> {'negative': 0.9525841474533081, 'neutral': 0.13661839067935944}]
    print(message, '->', sentiment)
