Research output: Non-textual formSoftwareScientific


Text-Fabric is a Python3 package for Text plus Annotations. It provides a data model, a text file format, and a binary format for (ancient) text plus (linguistic) annotations.
The emphasis of this all is on: data processing; sharing data; and contributing modules.
A defining characteristic is that Text-Fabric does not make use of XML or JSON, but stores text as a bunch of features. These features are interpreted against a graph of nodes and edges, which make up the abstract fabric of the text.
