NOTICE:: This repository is not maintained any longer. Please take a look at this auvipy's fork, for further developments.
A Python implementation of the popular Bengali phonetic-typing software Avro Phonetic.
pyAvroPhonetic provides a Python package which includes a text parser that converts Bangla written in Roman script to its phonetic equivalent in Bangla. It implements the Avro Phonetic Dictionary Search Library by Mehdi Hasan Khan.
Currently supported and tested Python versions are 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7. The code has not been tested on Python 3, but porting it to Python 3 is on the agenda. It will be possible once the simplejson library is stable for Python 3.
N.B. This package is under development and is not yet fit for production use.
Option 1. Using Pip (the easy way) (recommended):
$ sudo pip install PyAvroPhonetic
Option 2. Using Pip in a Virtualenv (needs virtualenv):
$ virtualenv pyAvroPhonetic $ cd pyAvroPhonetic $ source bin/activate $ pip install PyAvroPhonetic
Option 3. Using Git (needs git):
$ git clone https://github.com/kaustavdm/pyAvroPhonetic $ cd pyAvroPhonetic $ python setup.py build $ sudo python setup.py install
Option 4. Using Git in a Virtualenv (needs git and virtualenv):
$ virtualenv pyAvroPhonetic $ cd pyAvroPhonetic $ source bin/activate $ git clone https://github.com/kaustavdm/pyAvroPhonetic $ cd pyAvroPhonetic $ python setup.py build $ python setup.py install
At present, only the text parser has been implemented. It can be accessed as:
>>> from pyavrophonetic import avro >>> avro.parse('aami banglay gaan gai')

Note for developers
Please install these two libraries in your development environment. The tests/requirements.txt file specifies testing dependencies. To install them with pip:
$ sudo pip install -r tests/requirements.txt
Pylint is used with some modifications to the default configuration. The notable ones are:
- W0142 is ignored to allow usage of "magic methods"
- Maximum branches in function body: 20
- Maximum statements in function body: 100
For others please see the [Design] section in pylint-rc.ini. Our target is to keep up a score of 10.0/10 in Pylint's reports. Tests on Travis will fail if Pylint doesn't give 10.0/10. This is intentationally used to ensure uniform code structure and quality.
Run unit tests from the root of the repository:
$ nosetests --exe -v
Run pylint from root of the repository:
$ pylint --rcfile=pylint-rc.ini pyavrophonetic
We need more testers
