Python functions for working with the Thai language

Project Description


Some basic python functions for working with the Thai language. For example:

import pythai

>>> u"การ ที่ ได้ ต้อง แสดง ว่า งาน ดี"

>>> 8

>>> False

>>> True

It's meant to be fast and efficient enough to handle large documents without breaking a sweat.


Currently the library supports these functions:

- Word segmentation (`split`)
- Word count (`word_count`) (faster than counting the result of `split`)
- Whether a string contains Thai or not (`contains_thai`)


PyThai equires `thailib` to work. You can install it quite easily:

sudo apt-get install thailib

And then you can simply install `pythai` through **pip**:

pip install pythai


Special thanks to Vee Satayamas for the original python bindings of libthai from C.

This library was written for use in [Gengo]( It's free and open-source under the GNU lesser public license. Any contributions are welcome!
