Start

This notebook gets you started with using Text-Fabric for coding in cuneiform tablet transcriptions.

Familiarity with the underlying data model is recommended.

For provenance, see the documentation: about.

Overview

  • we tell you how to get Text-Fabric on your system;
  • we tell you how to get the Uruk IV-III corpus on your system.

Installing Text-Fabric

See here

Tip

If you start computing with this tutorial, first copy its parent directory to somewhere else, outside your repository. If you pull changes from the repository later, your work will not be overwritten. Where you put your tutorial directory is up to you. It will work from any directory.

Get the data

Text-Fabric will get the data for you and store it on your system.

If you have cloned the github repo with the data, Nino-cunei/uruk, your data is already in place, and nothing will be downloaded.

Otherwise, on first run, Text-Fabric will load the data and store it in the folder text-fabric-data in your home directory. This only happens if the data is not already there.

Not only transcription data will be downloaded, also linearts and photos. These images are contained in a zipfile of 550 MB, so take care that you have a good internet connection when it comes to downloading the images.

Start the engines

Navigate to this directory in a terminal and say

jupyter notebook

(just literally).

Your browser opens with a directory view, and you'll see start.ipynb. Click on it. A new browser tab opens, and a Python engine has been allocated to this notebook.

Now we are ready to compute . The next cell is a code cell that can be executed if you have downloaded this notebook and have issued the jupyter notebook command.

You execute a code cell by standing in it and press Shift Enter.

The code

In [1]:
%load_ext autoreload
%autoreload 2
In [2]:
import sys, os
from tf.app import use

View the next cell as an incantation. You just have to say it to get things underway.

For the very last version, use hot.

For the latest release, use latest.

If you have cloned the repos (TF app and data), use clone.

If you do not want/need to upgrade, leave out the checkout specifiers.

Text-Fabric API: names N F E L T S C TF directly usable

data: ~/text-fabric-data/Nino-cunei/uruk/sources/cdli/images
Found 2095 ideograph linearts
Found 2724 tablet linearts
Found 5495 tablet photos

The output

The output shows some statistics about the images found in the Uruk data.

Then there are links to the documentation.

Tip: open them, and have a quick look.

Every notebook that you set up with Cunei will have such links.

GitHub and NBViewer

If you have made your own notebook, and used this incantation, and pushed the notebook to GitHub, links to the online version of your notebook on GitHub and NBViewer will be generated and displayed.

By the way, GitHub shows notebooks nicely. Sometimes NBViewer does it better, although it fetches exactly the same notebook from GitHub.

NBViewer is handy to navigate all the notebooks of a particular organization. Try the Nino-cunei starting point.

These links you can share with colleagues.

Test

We perform a quick test to see that everything works.

Count the signs

We count how many signs there are in the corpus. In a next notebook we'll explain code like this.

In [5]:
len(F.otype.s("sign"))
Out[5]:
140094

Show photos and lineart

We show the photo and lineart of a tablet, to whet your appetite.

In [6]:
example = T.nodeFromSection(("P005381",))
In [7]:
A.photo(example)

Note that you can click on the photo to see a better version on CDLI.

Here comes the lineart:

The transliteration:

Now the lines ans cases of this tablet in a table:

In [12]:
table = []
for sub in L.d(example):
    if F.otype.v(sub) in {"line", "case"}:
        table.append((sub,))
In [13]:
A.table(table, showGraphics=False)
npline

4P005381 obverse:1:21(N14) NAR NUN~a SIG7
5P005381 obverse:1:32(N04) PIRIG~b1 SIG7 URI3~a NUN~a
6P005381 obverse:2:13(N04) |GISZ.TE| GAR |SZU2.((HI+1(N57))+(HI+1(N57)))| GI4~a

8P005381 reverse:1:13(N14) SZE~a

10P005381 reverse:1:3GU7
11P005381 reverse:2:1AZ SI4~f

We can include the lineart in plain displays:

In [14]:
A.table(table, showGraphics=True)
npline
1P005381 obverse:1:11a2(N14) SZE~a SAL TUR3~a NUN~a 1b3(N19) |GISZ.TE|
2P005381 obverse:1:11a2(N14) SZE~a SAL TUR3~a NUN~a
3P005381 obverse:1:11b3(N19) |GISZ.TE|
4P005381 obverse:1:21(N14) NAR NUN~a SIG7
5P005381 obverse:1:32(N04) PIRIG~b1 SIG7 URI3~a NUN~a
6P005381 obverse:2:13(N04) |GISZ.TE| GAR |SZU2.((HI+1(N57))+(HI+1(N57)))| GI4~a
7P005381 obverse:2:2GU7 AZ SI4~f
8P005381 reverse:1:13(N14) SZE~a
9P005381 reverse:1:23(N19) 5(N04)
10P005381 reverse:1:3GU7
11P005381 reverse:2:1AZ SI4~f

This is just the beginning.

In the next chapters we show you how to

  • fine-tune tablet displays,
  • step and jump around in the corpus,
  • search for patterns,
  • drill down to quads and signs,
  • and study frequency distributions of signs in subcases.
