Introducing Bescea

February 16, 2021

Here is an introduction to Bescea (https://github.com/harryahlas/bescea), a smart, instant search engine I have built for text analysis. I like to think this is most useful for someone who wants to search through a bunch of text data they have stored in a single file or data frame.

Installation

devtools::install_github("harryahlas/bescea") 

Run Bescea

library(bescea)
besceaApp(data = sneapsters,         
          text_field = "post_text",  
          unique_id = "textid")     

Requirements

Requires RStudio (reticulate and tidyverse packages) and Python (pandas, re, spacy, rank_bm25, tqdm, pickle, numpy, gensim, and nmslib modules).
