Install (compile) spacy with pip python sdk

Meteoroid

Hi

I’m facing a problem, it’s not exactly Alteryx problem but still I cannot use Alteryx because of it. I’m currently working on text mining projects and I want to use spacy. I tried to install it before with pip in windows but it cannot compile it (I tried nearly all versions of visual studio build tools without any success) so I moved to ubuntu. But now I want to create an Alteryx workflow with python sdk. How are you installing python libraries, which need to be compiled first in Windows ?

Hi @Nikolay,

 

Are you able to run "pip install spacy" from the Scripts folder of your tool repository ?

 

 

 

C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3>python -m venv %appdata%\Alteryx\Tools\SpacyTest

cd %appdata%\Alteryx\Tools\SpacyTest

cd Scripts

pip install spacy

 

In my case, installation works but it generates warnings related to numpy.

Example:

 

C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\lib\importlib\_bootstrap.py:205: RuntimeWarning: numpy.dtype size changed, may i
ndicate binary incompatibility. Expected 96, got 88
return f(*args, **kwds)

 

 

Note that you will have to install models through pip (or requirements.txt), example: 

 

 

pip install en_core_web_sm

 

 

Thanks,

Hi @

Thank you for the fast reply. I installed nltk with pip. But when I run pip install spacy I'm getting:

You are using pip version 9.0.1, however version 18.0 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'python -m pip install --upgrade pip' command.

I had the same problem with pycham, that's why I moved to Ubuntu.

 

Cheers

As I wrote before I don't think that this is a Alteryx problem, but Windows/Python problem with compilation.

Hi @Nikolay,

 

Thank for the feedback.

 

In this case, it seems that Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools (https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/downloads/#build-tools-for-visual-studio-2017) are going to be required in your case.

 

I have tested with wheel file (https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/spacy‑2.0.12‑cp36‑cp36m‑win_amd64.whl) but it seems to require to Clang.exe from LLVM (https://releases.llvm.org/3.8.1/LLVM-3.8.1-win64.exe).

 

Thanks,

Hi PaulN,

 

Thank you for the proposition.

 

I already tried all Microsoft Visual Build Tools 2017 - 2015 and some others, but it still cannot compile.

 

I red in many python forums that this is common Windows- Python issue.

Make sure, you have the correct version of Build Tools installed. This version seems to be working: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691126&fixForIE=.exe

Note, that you might need to uninstall the previous versions of the build tools. There is a known bug of Python not finding the correct libraries and thus failing to compile anything (see https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14372706/visual-studio-cant-build-due-to-rc-exe#46679777).

 

The wheel files @PaulN mentions fail for me (https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#spacy), because thinc 6.10.2 is included and the latest spaCy version requires thinc>=6.10.3

Hi Christa,

 

Thank you for the reply.

I uninstalled everything, restarted and than installed these tools and again the same error.  :(
