It will assist you in learning people's names from a collection of images.
Start the application from the command line with
nametrainer or with
The program can also be started with a demo collection:
nametrainer --demo or
With a collection loaded, the application window will look similar to this:
nametrainer shows a randomly chosen image.
You can then display the corresponding name and tell the application
whether you know the person's name or you don't know it yet.
Persons that you do not know will be shown more often.
Note that for reasons of speed and convenience it is not necessary
to type in the name (so be honest to yourself).
There are also keyboard shortcuts for "power users" (see the application's
Non-random orderto show the images in ordered sequence.
Display name at onceto display the names immediately when a person is shown.
These settings facilitate quick recapitulation of already learned names
or learning of new names.
Starting the application with
nametrainer --learning-mode or with
nametrainer -l activates both settings.
A collection is simply a directory with image files.
nametrainer searches in the specified directory for all JPG or PNG files.
It uses the file name as the person's display name unless a corresponding TXT file
is also present. In this case it will use the content of the TXT file as name.
For example, a collection might contain the following files:
Albert_Einstein.jpg img1234.jpg img1234.txt Werner_Heisenberg.JPG
- Do not use special characters in file names; use underscore instead of space.
- Use UTF-8 encoding for TXT files.
gem install nametrainer.
You will also have to install Qt bindings for Ruby:
On Linux, install the appropriate package for your distribution, or compile the bindings using the
qtbindingsgem (see the qtbindings README for instructions).
On Windows, the
qtbindingsgem should get you up and running.
The images for the demo collection were taken from robohash.org.
