Name parser and formatter (for politicians, individuals, and organizations)

Project description

This is the name parser and standardizer for the datacommons project. It now supports politician, individual and organization names.

Installation

Installation is easy:

pip install name-cleaver

Usage

Basic usage is the same for each type of name, just import the relevant NameCleaver class from one of:

  • PoliticianNameCleaver
  • IndividualNameCleaver
  • OrganizationNameCleaver

Example:

from name_cleaver import PolicitianNameCleaver smith = PoliticianNameCleaver(‘Smith, Robert J’).parse()

print str(smith) => “Robert J Smith”

Usage as above can usually be expected to return a Name object, but is not guaranteed to not throw an exception, if NameCleaver is given unexpected input or otherwise can’t figure out what to do with a name. In the case that you don’t want to deal with handling exceptions, NameCleaver has a safe mode:

smith = PoliticianNameCleaver(‘Smith, Robert J’).parse(safe=True)

In safe mode, if NameCleaver encounters an exception or doesn’t come up with a fully-formed name, it will return the original input string.
