Entre Guillemets: compare natural language processing APIs

Run a corpus of text files through multiple natural language processing (NLP) API vendors. View API results side by side so that you can get a general feel for how well each vendor works for your use case. Supported vendors: …

Entre Guillemets is greatly inspired by Cloudy Vision which meets the same types of objectives, but for computer vision APIs.

See example results here.


Entre Guillemets works with Python 3.6. If using Anaconda, you can first:

source activate py36

Install dependencies by running

pip install -r requirements.txt

Copy settings.dist.json to settings.json and add you API credentials.


Running and getting results is simply

python pg.py

This will process all text files (.txt extension) in input_files and store the results in output.
