Generate lyrics with TensorFlow and the Genius API
Generate intriguing lyrics with TensorFlow and an internet connection.
tflyrics is a Python package that allows you to easily select lyrics of
specific artists from genius.com, and train a deep
neural network to generate text that sounds similar to those lyrics. This
work was inspired from The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Recurrent Neural
Text generation with an
from tflyrics import Poet, LyricsGenerator artists = ['Bob Dylan', 'Tim Buckley', 'The Beatles'] gen = LyricsGenerator(artists, per_artist=5) ds = gen.as_dataset(batch_size=16) p = Poet() p.train_on(ds, n_epochs=10) poem = p.generate(start_string='Hey ', n_gen_chars=1000) print(poem)
Quick paraphrase: a
LyricsGenerator object makes it easy for you to create a
data pipeline that feeds from the Genius API directly into a recurrent neural
Poet object is a wrapper around a recurrent neural network.
Note that the Genius API requires you to have an access token. Without
tflyrics won't be able to get lyrics for you. You can get an access
token for free at docs.genius.com. Once you have
it you can either pass it under the
token argument of a
constructor, or store it as en environment variable (with
export GENIUS_ACCESS_TOKEN='<your token here>').
tflyrics will detect this
environment variable automatically, if it exists.
