A python package for use Textboxes : Image Text Detection Model

implemented by tensorflow, cv2

Textboxes Paper Review in Korean (My Blog) :

shintb : useable textboxes python package (Source codes are in here)

svt1 : Street view Text dataset. can use with shintb.svt_data_loader.SVTDataLoader when training Textboxes model : (NECESSARY) configuration of model building and training with shinTB : simple example useage of shinTB package



  1. python Version: 3.5.3
  2. numpy Version: 1.13.0
  3. tensorflow Version: 1.2.1
  4. cv2

How to use

  1. Clone this repository to your local.
  2. You will use shintb python package and for building and training your own Textboxes model.
  3. svt1 gives us training / test data.
  4. Open new python file.
  5. Import config.config and shintb.
from config import config
from shintb import graph_drawer, default_box_control, svt_data_loader, runner
  1. Initialize GraphDrawer,DefaultBoxControl,SVTDataLoader instance.
graphdrawer = graph_drawer.GraphDrawer(config)

dataloader = svt_data_loader.SVTDataLoader('./svt1/train.xml', './svt1/test.xml')

dbcontrol = default_box_control.DefaultBoxControl(config, graphdrawer)
  1. GraphDrawer instance contains a tensorflow graph of Textboxes.

  2. DefaultboxControl instance contains methods and attributes which is related to default box.

  3. SVTDataLoader instance loads data from svt1.

  4. Initialize Runner instance.

runner = runner.Runner(config, graphdrawer, dataloader, dbcontrol)
  1. Runner uses GraphDrawer,DefaultBoxControl,SVTDataLoader instance.
  2. If you want to train your Textboxes model, use Runner.train(). Every 1000 step, shintb will save ckpt file in the directory you set in
  1. If you want to validate/test your model, use Runner.test()
  1. After training, if you want to detect texts from one image use Runner.image().
