SWIG-bound hfst interface

Project description

Package hfst contains python bindings for HFST (Helsinki Finite-State Technology) C++ library. HFST toolkit is intended for processing natural language morphologies. The toolkit is demonstrated by wide-coverage implementations of a number of languages of varying morphological complexity.


The bindings work with python version 3.


Basic installation with pip:

pip install [--upgrade] hfst

Starting from python 3.4, pip is included by default:

python3 -m pip install [--upgrade] hfst

We currently offer pypi wheels for 64-bit python versions 3.4 and 3.3 for OS X and Windows.

Alternative installation instructions are given on our KitWiki pages.


See Doxygen-generated package documentation on our Github pages. In python, you can also use dir and help commands, e.g.:




HFST is licensed under Gnu GPL version 3.0.
