Simple server for rapidly prototyping Mechanical Turk interfaces

Project description

Simple server for rapidly prototyping Mechanical Turk interfaces.

ProtoTurk provides a Bottle-based webserver for rapidly prototyping Mechanical Turk interfaces. ProtoTurk takes Mechanical-Turk compatible HTML templates and CSV files as arguments:

prototurk [--host hostname] [--port port_number] html_file csv_file

and starts a webserver that, by default, listens on localhost port 8080. ProtoTurk re-reads the HTML template and CSV file from disk with every page refresh. When a user submits the HTML template’s form, the form parameters are logged to stdout.

ProtoTurk does not save any data to database or disk. If you need to run a Mechanical Turk-style server in your Local Environment, please take a look at Turkle.

ProtoTurk can be installed using:

python setup.py install

Or from PyPI:

pip install prototurk
