Table of Contents


WordWeaver is a Python library for turning an FST made with Foma into a RESTful API. It combines with the WordWeaver GUI to create an interactive web application for the data as well. WordWeaver was initially built for Kanyen’kéha but with all Iroquoian languages in mind. It will likely work for similar polysynthetic languages and Foma FSTs that model inflectional verbal morphology, but non-Iroquoian languages will likely have to modify the source in order to work.


The best thing to do is install with pip pip install wordweaver.

Otherwise, clone the repo and pip install it locally.

$ git clone
$ cd wordweaver
$ pip install -e .
