PyJoke 0.3.2

PyJoke: Fetch your jokes in Python.

Latest Version: 0.3.3

PyJoke is a package for fetching the perfect joke in a database. You give a sentence, you get a joke. Isn’t that great? Common usage is:

#!/usr/bin/env python

from pyjoke.PyJoke import *

p = PyJoke()
print p.getTheJoke("keywords listed as such")

PyJoke has been developed for as a NAO module (in French), but can also work as a standalone. It should be possible to make it work in English.

How does it work?

  • Give a sentence to PyJoke (see script above)
  • PyJoke will analyse the sentence
  • First, create a keywords list (by removing stopwords)
  • If POSTAG is active, it will add a score to each kword
  • Then, create a query, connect to database and send query
  • The query (above) is meant to filter the jokes It will get the jokes with at least 1 keyword
  • Then, score each joke
  • And return the best one

What can the user change?

  • Config a MySQL or a SQLite database
  • Use of Postag (and the scores)
  • NAO mode
  • Language (French by default)
  • Maximum joke length
  • Conversation mode (experimental)

Database format

The joke database needs to have two fields at least:

  • text
  • score

Text being the joke itself, and score being an arbitrary score that’s not going to be used, really (should do that…)

Useful libs and dependencies

PyJoke has dependencies, some are optional

  • NTLK
  • SQLite (or MySQL)
  • YAML
  • TreeTagger (opt)
  • /usr/lib/sqlite3/ (opt)
