I'm looking for a word/sentence annotation tool/plugin to be used INSIDE vim editor. Specifically I'm looking for a cli tool NER (named entity) tagging. Any idea/suggestion/tip?
By example, I would like to select a word or a list of contiguous words (using all vim conveniences) associating them to a a tag/label, say from a menu of tags (read form a config file, TBD).
The tagged text would be coloured with a nice background color and the file would be saved in a desired (configurable format). By example I would tag each NER span with a format like
[entity text span literal](entity_name)
By example, suppose I edit in vim a .txt or .yaml format (input) like this:
Original file (without tagging)
- intent: body_temperature_data examples: | - il termometro misura 36.3 gradi - 36.9 - 35.9 - 35,9 - la temperatura è di 36 e 7 gradi - 36 , 8
Tagged file: desired output file
I want to tag some numbers are entity
body_temperature, saving the file (in output) like this:
- intent: body_temperature_data examples: | - il termometro misura [36.3](body_temperature) gradi - [36.9](body_temperature) - [35.9](body_temperature) gradi - temperatura: [35,9](body_temperature) - la temperatura è di [36 e 7](body_temperature) gradi - [36 , 8](body_temperature)
Tagged file: visualization in NORMAL mode
Visually, during editing inside vim, I would like to see tagged words (numbers in the example) visualized with a background color (changing for each (preselected from a menu) label).
Example of visualization with web-based interface:
See visualization examples:
I guess one could realize al this coding a plugin in vimscript.
I have in mind a similar example, the plugin https://github.com/elzr/vim-json to escape double quotes in editing JSON. In that case when you are editing the current line, double quotes are visible, otherwise aren't. In analogy:
- when in INSERT mode I would like to edit full text LINE
- whereas, when in NORMAL mode I would like to tag with the above mentioned experience (selecting& tag). By example: the cursor is INSIDE a word or I selected a span pf text in VISUAL mode, afterwad, maybe with a special key, I display a menu with all possible enitiy labels and I chose a label from menu, tagging the text.
BTW, related question: How to replace selected text T with some function(T), using a keyboard shortcut?
Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks
