Windows (64-bit): snaut-setup-0.1.2.exe

Linux (64-bit) binary: snaut-0.1.2.tar.gz

Getting started (Windows):

  1. Download the snaut installer.
  2. Execute the downloaded file and follow instructions shown on the screen.
  3. When asked to select a folder with semantic spaces, create or select an existing folder. snaut will look for semantic space files in the folder that you seleced at this stage.
  4. After the installation is completed, download a file including a semantic space. A good semantic space to start with is a small CBOW space including English lemmas. You can download it here. For more semantic spaces see this page. You must place the downloaded file in the folder that you selected in step 3. Do not decompress the file.
  5. You may now start snaut, by either clicking on the shortcut on your Desktop or searching the Start menu.
  6. After you launch snaut, you should immedietly see a terminal screen saying that snaut is launching. After a few seconds, it should indicate that snaut is ready. If a tab pointing to snaut does not open automatically in your browser, you will need to start your browser manually and go to http://localhost:5005. Keep the terminal window open.
  7. From a dropdown menu, select a file with the semantic space that you downloaded in step 4 and specify a format of the file. If you downloaded the suggested CBOW space in step 4, you need to choose a CSV format from the dropdown menu on the right.
  8. Click at the 'Load' button and the semantic space will be loaded. After a short moment, a dialog window should disappear and you can start exploring the semantic space. For more information click on 'Help' in the upper right corner of the screen.
  9. To close snaut you need to close the terminal window that was started in step 6.
