Description: # langua
        A faster port of  https://code.google.com/archive/p/language-detection/ in Python
        
        Installation
        ============
        
            $ pip install langua
        
        Supported Python versions 2.7, 3.4+.
        
        
        Languages
        =========
        
        ``langua`` supports 55 languages out of the box ([ISO 639-1 codes](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-1_codes)):
        
            af, ar, bg, bn, ca, cs, cy, da, de, el, en, es, et, fa, fi, fr, gu, he,
            hi, hr, hu, id, it, ja, kn, ko, lt, lv, mk, ml, mr, ne, nl, no, pa, pl,
            pt, ro, ru, sk, sl, so, sq, sv, sw, ta, te, th, tl, tr, uk, ur, vi, zh-cn, zh-tw
        
        Basic usage
        ===========
        
        To detect the language of the text:
        
        ```python
        >>> from langua import Predict
        >>> p = Predict()
        >>> p.get_lang("Mother")
        'en'
        >>> p.get_lang(u"தாய்")
        'ta'
        >>> p.get_lang(u"അമ്മ")
        'ml'
        ```
        
        Benchmark Results
        ==================
        
        ```python
        >>> from langua import Predict
        >>> p = Predict()
        >>> %%timeit
           ...: p.get_lang(u"ഇംഗ്ലീഷ്")
           ...:
        1000 loops, best of 3: 721 µs per loop
        
        
        >>> from langdetect import detect
        >>> %%timeit
           ...: detect(u"ഇംഗ്ലീഷ്")
        1000 loops, best of 3: 1.07 ms per loop
        
        ```
        
        
        How to add new language?
        ========================
        
        You need to create a new language profile. The easiest way to do it is to use the [langdetect.jar](https://github.com/shuyo/language-detection/raw/master/lib/langdetect.jar) tool, which can generate language profiles from Wikipedia abstract database files or plain text.
        
        Wikipedia abstract database files can be retrieved from "Wikipedia Downloads" ([http://download.wikimedia.org/](http://download.wikimedia.org/)). They form '(language code)wiki-(version)-abstract.xml' (e.g. 'enwiki-20101004-abstract.xml' ).
        
        usage: ``java -jar langdetect.jar --genprofile -d [directory path] [language codes]``
        
        - Specify the directory which has abstract databases by -d option.
        - This tool can handle gzip compressed file.
        
        Remark: The database filename in Chinese is like 'zhwiki-(version)-abstract-zh-cn.xml' or zhwiki-(version)-abstract-zh-tw.xml', so that it must be modified 'zh-cnwiki-(version)-abstract.xml' or 'zh-twwiki-(version)-abstract.xml'.
        
        To generate language profile from a plain text, use the genprofile-text command.
        
        usage: ``java -jar langdetect.jar --genprofile-text -l [language code] [text file path]``
        
        For more details see [language-detection Wiki](https://code.google.com/archive/p/language-detection/wikis/Tools.wiki).
        
        
        Original project
        ================
        
        This is a vectorized modification of [Langdetect](https://github.com/Mimino666/langdetect) . There are some numpy optimizations and other tweaks
        which have improved the performance of predicting the language class.
        
        LangDetect was a port of another project called [language-detection](https://code.google.com/p/language-detection/)
