example of using corenlp server from python
example of using corenlp server from python
This code requires server to already be running:
To start server:
java -mx4g -cp "*" edu.stanford.nlp.pipeline.StanfordCoreNLPServer -port 9000 -timeout 15000
To call it, e.g.:
curl --data "The man wanted to go to work." 'http://localhost:9000/?properties={%22annotators%22%3A%22tokenize%2Cssplit%2Cpos%2Cdepparse%22%2C%22outputFormat%22%3A%22conllu%22}'
other trick: use a remote server over ssh
1. on server machine, run the corenlp server
2. on local machine, run a tunnel in its own terminal:
ssh -NL 9000:remotehost:9000
now localhost:9000 connects to remote server at 9000. "curl http://localhost:9000 ..." should work.
