This library aims to provide the GloVe algorithm in a nearly-unaltered format relative to its original distribution by stanfordnlp.

The bulk of the alterations consist of removing the main() methods from the glove applications, and converting them to accept filenames instead of stdin/stdout. (See pull requests 1, 2, and 3)

These altered C sources are then wrapped with Cython to provide "native extensions" in the Python runtime.


Local Testing

Prerequisites: gcc and cython installed.

To test this library locally:

  1. clone the repo
  2. from crucyble/ run python build_ext -i
  3. try: PYTHONPATH=. python test/
  4. examine the outputs!

You can change the corpus variable in to point to any corpus you have locally.


...coming soon


Todo... :shrug:
