- https://github.com/jakevdp/pyCRFsuite - uses C API instead of C++ API; allows to use scipy sparse matrices as an input.
- https://github.com/chokkan/crfsuite/tree/master/swig/python - official Python wrapper, exposes C++ API using SWIG.
This package (python-crfsuite) wraps CRFsuite C++ API using Cython. It is faster than official SWIG wrapper and has a simpler codebase than a more advanced pyCRFsuite. python-crfsuite works in Python 2 and Python 3, doesn’t have external dependencies (CRFsuite is bundled, numpy/scipy stack is not needed) and workarounds some of the issues with C++ CRFsuite library.
