I am excited to have this little website to bring useful information to users of the CLTK. As the project continues to grow, I hope users can share tutorials, code snippets, etc..

If you are interested in authoring a post, you can send your text (preferably in Markdown) to me by email (kyle@kyle-p-johnson.com) or, better yet, fork this site’s repository, add your post, and make a pull request. This can all be done in-browser on GitHub. While not necessary, to clone this site and run it locally, see directions for using Jekyll on GitHub pages.

To author a new post, simply add a file to to the _posts directory, following the convention YYYY-MM-DD-name-of-post.markdown and edit in the header the fields title, date, and author (leave layout and categories alone).

One note for future contribs, code snippets such as the following are done with the syntax found on this page’s source.

In [1]: from nltk.tokenize.punkt import PunktLanguageVars

In [2]: from cltk.stop.greek.stops import STOPS_LIST

In [3]: text = """Ἡροδότου Θουρίου ἱστορίης ἀπόδεξις ἥδε, ὡς μήτε τὰ 
   ...: γενόμενα ἐξ ἀνθρώπων τῷ χρόνῳ ἐξίτηλα γένηται, μήτε 
   ...: ἔργα μεγάλα τε καὶ θωμαστά, τὰ μὲν Ἕλλησι, τὰ δὲ βαρβάροισι 
   ...: ἀποδεχθέντα, ἀκλέα γένηται, τά τε ἄλλα καὶ δι' ἣν 
   ...: αἰτίην ἐπολέμησαν ἀλλήλοισι."""

In [4]: p = PunktLanguageVars()

In [5]: tokens = p.word_tokenize(text.lower())

In [6]: [w for w in tokens if not w in STOPS_LIST]
