koine-nlp release

Today I am formally releasing koine-nlp 0.2, a Python library for common NLP-related tasks for Koine Greek. I decided to make a fancy koine-nlp homepage with the help of sphinx. It includes info on installation, a tutorial, and an API reference for the koinenlp module. You can find the source repository on my gogs instance.

In the most basic mode of operation, koine-nlp is used to prepare polytonic Greek text for indexing by normalizing. This done by means of the omnibus normalize() function:

>>> import koinenlp
>>> koinenlp.normalize("καὶ ἡ σκοτία αὐτὸ οὐ κατέλαβεν.")
'και η σκοτια αυτο ου κατελαβεν'

There's plenty more to it - see the documentation for more.

I do plan on adding some features in the future, so watch this space.
