numerals Eval#3 Week#9

by Logan


Week Summary

Added URL parameters to allow user to specify a custom corpus, but most API endpoints do not yet support filtering by a custom corpus. Regenerating data in new formats was tedious, so some time was spent on speed improvements to make later updates easier to test and run. Additional (minor) speed improvements to the flask API: API calls are still slow, but there are no obvious places to optimize. Began tutoring Himanshu in using Docker.
