Show HN: Generate a quiz from a Wikipedia page

To run:

requirements.txt contains the libraries/modules you’ll need. You’ll also need to download some data so that the nltk library works. To do this, start the Python console (ie. type python on the command line) and then:

>>> import nltk

Run to get the Flask endpoints working, and then open up index.html – that’s all!

Potential Future Improvements:

Choosing more appropriate multiple-choice options, especially for numbers

ie. if the answer is ‘1960s’, show ‘1950s’ as another option.

Ignoring the less text heavy parts of a Wikipedia page.

Creating more interesting grammar for the text chunker, which would lead to more interesting question types.

Some of the questions presented currently lack context about what the question is referring to. A further version of this project would attempt to interpret the context of the sentence in question and include that in the question.

ie. references to ‘they’ or ‘he’ would be replaced by what

SILE Typesetting System

SILE is a typesetting system.
Its job is to produce beautiful printed documents.
The best way to understand what SILE is and what it does is to compare it to other systems which you may have heard of.

SILE versus Word

When most people produce printed documents using a computer, they usually use software such as Word (part of Microsoft Office) or Writer (part of Open/LibreOffice) or similar–word processing software.
SILE is not a word processor; it is a typesetting system.
There are several important differences.

The job of a word processor is to produce a document that looks exactly like what you type on the screen.
SILE takes what you type and considers it instructions for producing a document that looks as good as possible.
