Has anyone used (and liked) any good "frequent sequence mining" packages in Python other than the FPM in MLLib? I am looking for a stable package, preferable stilled maintained by people. Thank you!
The only one I've found is: https://github.com/bartdag/pymining
they have an implementation of
BIDE there but it's not maintained code.
P.S. I'm joining to your question :-|
I am actively maintaining an efficient implementation of both PrefixSpan and BIDE in Python 3, supporting mining both frequent and top-k (closed) sequential patterns.
I've used fim's fpgrowth function in the past and it worked well. It's kind of a pain to install on Windows machines however. It seems to be an academic website so I'm not sure if they're doing many updates to the code over time...
Have you considered to write it by yourself? Because there is probably no up-to-date maintained library right now.
Check this out, its the basic - PrefixSpan and Closed/Maximal patterns are actually not that hard to implement:
SPMF sounds like a useful library for pattern mining: http://www.philippe-fournier-viger.com/spmf/
