Getting Started


-- The advanced installation guide is available here --

The quickest way to install and run the Parsr API is through the docker image:

docker pull axarev/parsr

If you also wish to install the GUI for sending documents and visualising results:

docker pull axarev/parsr-ui-localhost

Note: Parsr can also be installed bare-metal (not via Docker containers), the procedure for which is documented in the installation guide.


-- The advanced usage guide is available here --

To run the API, issue:

docker run -p 3001:3001 axarev/parsr

which will launch it on http://localhost:3001.
Consult the documentation on the usage of the API.

  1. To access the python client to Parsr API, issue:

    pip install parsr-client

    To sample the Jupyter Notebook, using the python client, head over to the jupyter demo.

  1. To use the GUI tool (the API needs to already be running), issue:
    docker run -t -p 8080:80 axarev/parsr-ui-localhost:latest
    Then, access it through http://localhost:8080.

Refer to the Configuration documentation to interpret the configurable options in the GUI viewer.
