Are you interested in reviving this excellent project?
Do you want to help get and keep this project current with the development happening on OpenNLP?
It has been over 4 years since this project was first created. In those intervening years the OpenNLP codebase has changed drastically and has a number of improvements, bug fixes, refactorings, and general improvements.
Catching up from where SharpNLP is today to the current state of OpenNLP is an enormous undertaking. I won't be able to do it alone.
In order to facilitate this update, I've created an open source GitHub repository here called
SharperNLP [https://github.com/pburrows/SharperNLP] (yeah, I know not the most clever name.) As of right now SharperNLP is a direct fork of the
SharpNLP code base. Very rapidly I want to get this project current with where OpenNLP is.
I am going to need a lot of help to get this done.
It does not matter if you are new to the concepts of NLP, new to SharpNLP, or even new to programming. The first tasks, for a long time, are going to be straight porting from the Java code base to our C# code base. Porting from Java to C# is easy. It is
modular, and anyone can do it.
I am going through today and this weekend (probably won't get it done tonight) and adding Issues for the conversion of specific .Java to equivalent .CS files. If you want to help, check out the
Issues list, choose one of the files to convert, and have at it.
I've seen a lot of posts on this forum asking if this project is dead, and volunteering to help out on it. This is your chance.
