Checks grammar using LanguageTool.
Python wrapper for LanguageTool.
This is a fork of https://bitbucket.org/spirit/language_tool that produces more easily parsable results from the command-line.
From the interpreter:
>>> import language_check >>> tool = language_check.LanguageTool('en-US') >>> text = u'A sentence with a error in the Hitchhiker’s Guide tot he Galaxy' >>> matches = tool.check(text) >>> len(matches) 2
Check out some Match object attributes:
>>> matches.fromy, matches.fromx (0, 16) >>> matches.ruleId, matches.replacements ('EN_A_VS_AN', ['an']) >>> matches.fromy, matches.fromx (0, 50) >>> matches.ruleId, matches.replacements ('TOT_HE', ['to the'])
Print a Match object:
>>> print(matches) Line 1, column 51, Rule ID: TOT_HE Message: Did you mean 'to the'? Suggestion: to the ...
Automatically apply suggestions to the text:
>>> language_check.correct(text, matches) 'A sentence with an error in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy'
From the command line:
$ echo 'This are bad.' > example.txt $ language-check example.txt example.txt:1:1: THIS_NNS: Did you mean 'these'?
To install via pip:
$ pip install --upgrade language-check
If you are using Python 2, you’ll need to install 3to2 beforehand:
$ pip install --upgrade 3to2
The installation process should take care of downloading LanguageTool (it may take a few minutes). Otherwise, you can manually download LanguageTool-stable.zip and unzip it into where the language_check package resides.
To use language-check in Vim, install Syntastic and use the following settings:
let g:syntastic_text_checkers = ['language_check'] let g:syntastic_text_language_check_args = '--language=en-US'
Customize your language as appropriate.
