Project Description


Generates silly poems based off of mad-libbed, serious poems, a tagged text corpus, and a pronunciation dictionary.


  1. Python 3.3+


To install:

pip install filks
filk install

The filk install step is not strictly necessary if you plan to use strictly a library and corpus you already have installed; however in most cases this will be most convenient. This step downloads the nltk library texts to your machine.


To generate a terrible poem:

filk format

See filk format -h for options.


To build the dev environment:

make venv
. venv/bin/activate


All original source code in this repo, including all *.py and configuration files, is released under the MIT license included.

However, this library relies on corpuses from nltk which may have a variety of free-ish licenses.
