ReaderBench library written in python

Project description

ReaderBench Python


We recommend using virtual environments, as some packages require an exact version.
If you only want to use the package do the following:

  1. python3 -m venv rbenv (create virutal environment named rbenv)
  2. source rbenv/bin/activate (actiavte virtual env)
  3. pip3 uninstall setuptools && pip3 install setuptools && pip3 install --upgrade pip && pip3 install --no-cache-dir rbpy-rb

If you want to contribute to the code base of package:

  1. git clone
  2. cd readerbechpy
  3. python3 -m venv rbenv (create virutal environment named rbenv)
  4. source rbenv/bin/activate (actiavte virtual env)
  5. pip3 uninstall setuptools && pip3 install setuptools && pip3 install --upgrade pip
  6. python3 -r requirements.txt
  7. ./ (install all other things which are not python packages (semantic models))

You may also need some spacy models which are downloaded through spacy.
You have to download these spacy models by yourself, using the command:
python3 -m spacy download name_of_the_model
The logger will also write instructions on which models you need, and how to download them.

Be careful, you need to have spacy 2.1.3. If you change the version of spacy (you had a previous version) you need to reinstall xx_ent_wiki_sm model.

For neural coref errors install it as follows:


For usage (parsing, lemmatization, NER, wordnet, content words, indices etc.) see file from
