Using pip

Most users should be able to install textkit easily using pip:

pip install -U textkit

To ensure you have all the data files needed to run all the commands, you should then run:

textkit download

This will download some files that NLTK (a dependency of textkit) needs for certain commands.

From Source

Textkit is developed and maintained on github, so building from source is also easy.

First clone the repo:

git clone

Then navigate to the textkit directory to install its requirements

cd textkit
pip install -r requirements.txt

Finally, install the local version of textkit using the --editable flag:

pip install --editable .
