You can the apertium-init tool to create ("bootstrap") a directory for quick development of a transducer.

Install apertium-init

Download apertium-init and install it:

Create a language module

Create an hfst-based apertium language module (in your ~/ling073 directory), replacing xyz with the ISO code of your language in all occurrences:

  • apertium-init -a hfst xyz

Rename the module ling073-xyz if you want (so that it matches what will be in github later, and any further instructions):

  • mv apertium-xyz ling073-xyz

Notes:

  • If get an error about SVN and the directory not being a working copy, then you have an old version of apertium-init.
  • If something goes wrong (e.g., you make a typo), delete any directories/files that were created and try the step again.

Push to github

If this is a language pair you would like to push to github, do the following ideally before modifying any files or compiling the module:

  1. Create an empty (no files) repository named ling073-xyz on github.
  2. Make sure the repository really was created correctly by running git log. You should see a single commit named "initial commit".
  3. Set the github repository you created as the remote origin:
    • git remote add origin git@github.swarthmore.edu:username/ling073-xyz.git (replacing "username" and "xyz" below as appropriate)
  4. Push the bootstrapped module to origin:
    • git push --set-upstream origin master
  5. After this you should be able to see the same files from the github web interface and in the directory. You should also be able to commit, push, pull, etc. all normally.
