An Open Source name disambiguation tool for version control systems
gambit is an Open Source name disambiguation tool for version control systems.
Download and installation
gambit is pure
python code. It has no platform-specific dependencies and thus works on all
platforms. Assuming you are using
pip, you can install latest version of
gambit by running:
> pip install gambit-disambig
This also installs the necessary dependencies.
gambit depends on the
python-Levenshtein package to compute Levenshtein distances for edited lines of code. On sytems running Windows, automatically compiling this C based module might fail during installation. In this case, unofficial Windows binaries can be found here, which might help you get started.
How to use gambit
After installation, we suggest to check out our tutorial, detailing how to get started using
gambit. We also provide detailed inline documentation serving as reference.
We have publised some motivating results as well as details on the disambiguation algorithm and its hyperparameters in "gambit– An Open Source Name Disambiguation Tool for Version Control Systems". Together with the paper, we have further released a jupyter notebook (using an early version of
gambit) reproducing all results shown in the paper on zenodo.org.
Due to GDPR we cannot publish the manually disambiguated ground-truth data on zenodo. However, if you require this data for research purposes or replication of our results please feel free to contact us directly.
All functions of
gambithave been tested on Ubuntu, Mac OS, and Windows.
