Python library for performing string similarity joins.
This project seeks to build a Python software package that provides scalable implementation of string similarity joins over two tables, for commonly used similarity measures such as Jaccard, Dice, cosine, overlap, overlap coefficient and edit distance. The package is free, open-source, and BSD-licensed.
py_stringsimjoin has been tested on Python 2.7, 3.4+.
The required dependencies to build the package are pandas 0.16.0 or higher, py_stringmatching 0.2.1 or higher, joblib, pyprind, six and a C++ compiler. For the development version, you will also need Cython.
py_stringsimjoin has been tested on Linux, OS X and Windows.
