A collection of python utilities and scripts for identifying named entities in text and XML
Python scripts and utilities for looking up names and linking them to authoritative identifiers.
Currently uses DBpedia Spotlight for recognition of named entities in text, with support for matching identified DBpedia resources (currently only for Persons) with the equivalent resource in VIAF (Virtual International Authority File).
We recommend the use of pip to install the latest released version of this package and its dependencies:
pip install namedropper
This will also make the lookup-names script available.
To run unit tests or generate documentation, you should also install development dependencies:
pip install -r pip-dev-req.txt
