@arademaker these are tools for UW’s typological inference work. A goal was to automatically fill out the Grammar Matrix based on the values inferred from linguistic examples (IGTs), but otherwise it’s not related to DELPH-IN.
@ecconrad Regarding easier installation, note that you do not need to publish on PyPI to install with
pip. You can
pip install path/to/project/ if the path is a directory containing a
setup.py file (
setup.py is not the only way to define a build configuration, but it’s still the most well-known). You can also install directly from a Git repository (again, assuming it has
setup.py). For example, I’m working on a new wordnet module that is not yet published on PyPI, so I say it can be installed like this:
pip install git+https://github.com/goodmami/wn.git
Unless you expect people outside your group to stumble upon these projects and want to try them out, publishing to PyPI is probably just extra work.
That said, I do recommend packaging projects (particularly those that are dependencies) with
setup.py and installing them with
pip over manually copying files, tweaking PYTHONPATH, using
setup.py install, etc., because
pip makes it easier to upgrade and uninstall, and it works well with virtual environments.
