This repository contains the attention visualization component from exBERT and a minimalized server that does not support corpus indexing or search by embedding.

The performance of this app will exceed that of exBERT on a slower internet connection as signifcantly less information (like that of the embeddings and results from FAISS searches) is needed to be sent over the REST API.

Getting Started

Install the environment

You can install the environment needed to run the server with conda:

conda env create -f environment.yml

This will create an environment named exformer.


You can start the server by conda activate exformer followed by python server/main.py.


The compiled versions of the frontend are already included in the client/dist folder. You can get setup to develop on the frontend by the following:

  1. cd client/src
  2. npm install
  3. npm run ww

This will allow you to change the typescript files and see the changes in your browser on refresh.
