Talismane is a AGPL licensed language analysis tool suite that supports French. This project aims to provide a standalone server providing a RESTful API that can than be used by Apache Stanbol for NLP processing of texts.

The Talismane are not available on any Maven server. Because of that it is necessary

  • clone talismane form

All modules are dual licensed under the AGPL and the Apache License Version 2.0.

Why two licenses

While I am no expert the intension of having two licenses is the following: Executing this code requires to confirm to the more restrictive rules defined by the AGPL the more permissive Apache License will still allow users to take code snippets or utility classes and do with them what ever they want.
