MeCab Chef Cookbook

Circle CI

Installs MeCab, its program language bindings, and its well-known dictionary.

Currently installing MeCab with Cef has some difficulty:

  • MeCab binary is hosted at Google Drive.
  • MeCab source hosted at GitHub is huge.

This recipe is implemented in a somewhat forcible manner, so there are some problems remains:

  • It takes long running time because it checks out huge git repository of MeCab from github.
  • Immutability

Because of above intractability, it is a good idea to use package manager like apt or yum alternative of this cookbook.

Platforms

The following platforms and versions are tested and supported using test-kitchen

  • Ubuntu (14.04)
  • Debian (8.0)
  • CentOS (7.0)
