Applies new import merging and sorting from µsort v1.0.

When merging imports, µsort will make a best-effort to move associated
comments to match merged elements, but there are known limitations due to
the diynamic nature of Python and developer tooling. These changes should
not produce any dangerous runtime changes, but may require touch-ups to
satisfy linters and other tooling.

Note that µsort uses case-insensitive, lexicographical sorting, which
results in a different ordering compared to isort. This provides a more
consistent sorting order, matching the case-insensitive order used when
sorting import statements by module name, and ensures that "frog", "FROG",
and "Frog" always sort next to each other.

For details on µsort's sorting and merging semantics, see the user guide:

PyText is a deep-learning based NLP modeling framework built on PyTorch. PyText addresses the often-conflicting requirements of enabling rapid experimentation and of serving models at scale. It achieves this by providing simple and extensible interfaces and abstractions for model components, and by using PyTorch’s capabilities of exporting models for inference via the optimized Caffe2 execution engine. We are using PyText in Facebook to iterate quickly on new modeling ideas and then seamlessly ship them at scale.

Core PyText features:

Installing PyText

PyText requires Python 3.6.1 or above.

To get started on a Cloud VM, check out our guide.

Get the source code:

  $ git clone
  $ cd pytext

Create a virtualenv and install PyText:

  $ python3 -m venv pytext_venv
  $ source pytext_venv/bin/activate
  (pytext_venv) $ pip install pytext-nlp

Detailed instructions and more installation options can be found in our Documentation. If you encounter issues with missing dependencies during installation, please refer to OS Dependencies.

Train your first text classifier

For this first example, we'll train a CNN-based text-classifier that classifies text utterances, using the examples in tests/data/train_data_tiny.tsv. The data and configs files can be obtained either by cloning the repository or by downloading the files manually from GitHub.

  (pytext_venv) $ pytext train < demo/configs/docnn.json

By default, the model is created in /tmp/

Now you can export your model as a caffe2 net:

  (pytext_venv) $ pytext export < demo/configs/docnn.json

You can use the exported caffe2 model to predict the class of raw utterances like this:

  (pytext_venv) $ pytext --config-file demo/configs/docnn.json predict <<< '{"text": "create an alarm for 1:30 pm"}'

More examples and tutorials can be found in Full Documentation.
