Python wrapper for Heideltime library.

Project description


This is a python wrapper for the multilingual temporal tagger HeidelTime.

For more information about this temporal tagger, please visit :

Heideltime needs a Part Of Speech Tagger, by default it uses TreeTagger : This repo includes TreeTagger scripts for Mac and Linux. Windows users will have to download the appropriate scripts from the TreeTagger home page.


  1. Clone the current github repo: git clone
  2. Install its requirements: pip install -r requirements.txt
  3. Create a python file in the same directory with the following code:
import HeidelTime
hw = HeidelTime.HeidelTimeWrapper('english')
hw.parse('Neil Armstrong was born in 1930')

Future Work

  • Encapsulate the returned tagged string in a python object
  • Find a way to install the appropriate POS tagger files according to the user OS.
  • Package all the necessary parts in the same python package and release it on PyPi.

Pull requests are welcome to improve this wrapper (which is in an early stage).
