JSON Tagger

UDPipe finds detailed Part-of-speech tags (Noun, Verb, ...) in Swedish sentences. This code makes UDPipe available via a JSON API.

How to run JSON Tagger locally

JSON-Tagger is built for Python 3.6. I haven't tested it on other versions, so it might work or other 3.x versions, but not on Python 2.

  1. Clone this project from GitHub:
git clone json-tagger
  1. Install dependencies:
cd json-tagger
pip install -r requirements.txt
  1. Get a UDPipe model file

Download the latest version of the udipe models from Pick the language you are interested in, create a data directory in the root of the project, and put the .udipe file there. Now update the path to the file in ud_helper, and in if you use a language other than Swedish. Done!

  1. Start the local web server
python --run
  1. Surf to http://localhost:8000 in your browser!

Run the tests

The trickiest part of delivering an API like JSON Tagger is to handle encodings. I've found that the easiest way to make sure I don't mess them up is to run code that accesses the API from different languages. To run some simple integration tests against a version running locally:

  1. Install dependencies

The scripts assume you are running them inside a virtualenv with python pointing to Python 3, and that python2 and curl is available on the PATH.

pip2 install requests
pip install requests
gem install http
npm install -g request
  1. Run all the tests

If any of the tests fail it will output the difference in output between the result and the expected result.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
