GATE NLP implementation in Python.

Project description

Python library gatenlp

PyPi version Python compatibility PyPI - Downloads GitHub

This is a package for representing the basic elements of text processing and NLP in a way that is very similar to the Java GATE NLP framework, for manipulating GateNLP documents and for interacting with GATE Java and the GATE python plugin.

NOTE: This package is still in an early development stage

**NOTE: The previous Pypi project "gatenlp" has moved to gatenlphiltlab **


This package is a Python implementation of text processing and NLP similar to Java GATE NLP. Currently it is possible to load GATE documents from their BdocJS (JSON) representation or create GATE documents from scratch. This creates an object of type gatenlp.Document which offers an API for adding, retrieving and changing stand-off annotations and document features in much the same way as this is done in Java GATE.

This document representation also optionally allows to track all changes done to the document in a "change log" (a gatenlp.ChangeLog instance). Such changes can later be applied to Java GATE documents.

This library also implements the functionality for the interaction with a Java GATE process in two different ways:

  • The Java GATE Python plugin can invoke a python process to annotate GATE documents with python code
  • the python code can remote-control a Jave GATE instance
