django-colloquial 0.9.2

Django-colloquial is an application designed to manage media files and their associated webvtt transcripts, using a custom tag format to cross-link tagged phrases (“colloquialisms”) in the text. Features:

  • Parse existing transcripts for tagged colloquialisms
  • Automatically tag known colloquialisms in untagged transcripts
  • Filter related transcripts by common colloquialisms

Requirements & Installation

Currently requires python 2.7 and django 1.10. Wider support coming soon. To install:

pip install django-colloquial

Then add to your INSTALLED_APPS:


COLLOQUIAL_TYPES defines the different types of colloqiualisms supported and whether or not they may automatically tag:

    ('idiom', 'Idiom', True),
    ('proper_name', 'Proper Name', False),

Transcript format

Transcripts should be in the webvtt format. Colloquialisms should be tagged using the format <c.TYPE>colloquialism text</c> where TYPE comes from the COLLOQUIAL_TYPES setting. For example:

00:00:00.092 --> 00:00:10.681
<v Rukuwai> Ko <c.tangata>Hohepa Tipene</c> te kaikorero e whai ake nei.
