spaCy is a Python package that provides industrial-strength natural language processing.
Latest available wheels
To see the latest version of spaCy that we have built:
[name@server ~]$ avail_wheels spacy thinc thinc_gpu_ops
For more information on listing wheels, see listing available wheels.
The preferred option is to install it using the python wheel that we compile, as follows:
- 1. Load python 3.6 module: python/3.6
- 2. Create and activate a virtual environment.
- 3. Install spaCy in the virtual environment with
pip install. For both GPU and CPU support:
(venv) [name@server ~] pip install spacy[cuda] --no-index
- If you only need CPU support:
(venv) [name@server ~] pip install spacy --no-index
GPU version: At the present time, in order to use the GPU version you need to add the CUDA libraries to LD_LIBRARY_PATH:
(venv) [name@server ~] module load gcc/5.4.0 cuda/9 (venv) [name@server ~] export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$CUDA_HOME/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
If you want to use the Pytorch wrapper with thinc, you'll also need to install the torch_cpu or torch_gpu wheel.
