Simple Markov and HMM

Project description

Simple, lightweight and easy to read implementation of Markov chains and HMMs.

This is a toy project, don’t expect any exciting speeds or robustness.

Happy hacking!


pip3 install git+git://


git clone
cd smarkov
python3 develop

Train with a corpus

from smarkov import Markov
chain = Markov(["AGACAGACGAC"])


corpus: given corpus (a corpus_entry needs to be a tuple or array)
order: maximal order to look back for a given state (default 1) tokenize: function how to split an element of the corpus (e.g sentences into words)

Generate text from a chain


Generate_text() generates exactly one element from the Markov chain. In other words: It goes in the Markov chain the universal start state to universal end state.
