Ve

A linguistic framework for anyone. No degree required.

Read all about it on kimtaro.github.com/ve.

Ruby

require 've'
words = Ve.in(:en).words('I like melons.')

Structure

  • Ve::LocalInterface - Main interface that gives access to functionality in providers that exist locally
  • Ve::XInterface - Allows for different ways of accessing Ve providers. Locally, through an HTTP API, binary protocol or whatever
  • Ve::Manager - Keeps track of providers and what they can do
  • Ve::Provider::X - Talks to the underlying parser
  • Ve::Parse::X - Takes the output from the Provider and turns it into functions the end user can use

Todo

  • Expose more through the sinatra server
  • Alias lemma to base, so people don't need to know what lemmas are
  • Break out into separate projects for each component. Ve-ruby, Ve-js.
  • Better UTF-8 handling for Freeling
  • See all the TODO's in the code
