# fitting classifier object of type 'int' has no len()

We have LDA topic modeling whose purpose is to generate a number of topics given a set of documents. So each document can belong to various topics.

Also, we can evaluate the model we have created. one of the approaches is using classification method like SVM. My goal is to evaluate the created model.

I am faced with two kinds of code for making the LDA model.

### Approach 1:

# generate LDA model
id2word = corpora.Dictionary(texts)

# Creates the Bag of Word corpus.
mm = [id2word.doc2bow(text) for text in texts]

# Trains the LDA models.
lda = ldamodel.LdaModel(corpus=mm, id2word=id2word, num_topics=10,
update_every=1, chunksize=10000, passes=1,gamma_threshold=0.00, minimum_probability=0.00)


this way I can not use Fit_transform

### Approach 2:

tf_vectorizer = CountVectorizer(max_features=n_features,
stop_words='english')
tf = tf_vectorizer.fit_transform(data_samples)

lda = LatentDirichletAllocation(n_topics=n_topics, max_iter=5,
learning_method='online',
learning_offset=50.,
random_state=0)

lda_x=lda.fit_transform(tf)


in the first approach, there is no fit_transform method for LDA model, I do not know why as I don't understand the difference between them.

Anyway, I need to pass that LDA model I have created with the first approach to SVM(the reason I put these two approach here is that I know with the second approach there is no error probably because of fit_transform but for some reason I couldn't use that.

### Final code:

import os
from gensim.models import ldamodel
from nltk.tokenize import RegexpTokenizer
from nltk.stem.porter import PorterStemmer
from gensim import corpora, models
from sklearn.feature_extraction.text import CountVectorizer, TfidfTransformer
from sklearn.pipeline import Pipeline
from sklearn.multiclass import OneVsRestClassifier
from sklearn.svm import LinearSVC

tokenizer = RegexpTokenizer(r'\w+')

# create English stop words list
en_stop = {'a'}

# Create p_stemmer of class PorterStemmer
lines=[]
p_stemmer = PorterStemmer()
lisOfFiles=[x[2] for x in os.walk("data")]

fullPath = [x[0] for x in os.walk("data")]
for j in lisOfFiles[2]:
with open(os.path.join(fullPath[2],j)) as f:
lines.append(a)

for j in lisOfFiles[3]:
with open(os.path.join(fullPath[3],j)) as f:
lines.append(a)

for j in lisOfFiles[4]:
with open(os.path.join(fullPath[4],j)) as f:
lines.append(a)

# compile sample documents into a list
doc_set = lines
# list for tokenized documents in loop
texts = []

# loop through document list
for i in doc_set:
# clean and tokenize document string
raw = i.lower()
tokens = tokenizer.tokenize(raw)

# remove stop words from tokens
stopped_tokens = [i for i in tokens if not i in en_stop]

# stem tokens
stemmed_tokens = [p_stemmer.stem(i) for i in stopped_tokens]

texts.append(stemmed_tokens)

# generate LDA model
id2word = corpora.Dictionary(texts)

# Creates the Bag of Word corpus.
mm = [id2word.doc2bow(text) for text in texts]

# Trains the LDA models.
lda = ldamodel.LdaModel(corpus=mm, id2word=id2word, num_topics=10,
update_every=1, chunksize=10000, passes=1,gamma_threshold=0.00, minimum_probability=0.00)

# Assigns the topics to the documents in corpus

dictionary = corpora.Dictionary(texts)

# convert tokenized documents into a document-term matrix
corpus = [dictionary.doc2bow(text) for text in texts]

#creating the labels
lda_corpus = lda[mm]
label_y=[]
for i in lda_corpus:
new_y = []
for l in i:
sorted_labels = sorted(i, key=lambda z: z[0], reverse=True)
if l[1] > 0.005:
new_y.append(l[0])
label_y.append(new_y)

classifier = Pipeline([
('vectorizer', CountVectorizer(max_df=2,min_df=1)),
('tfidf', TfidfTransformer()),
('clf', OneVsRestClassifier(LinearSVC()))])
classifier.fit(lda, label_y)


As you see in my code I have used the first approach for some reasons, but in the last line, it raises an error(object of type int has no len()). It seems it can not accept LDA created in this way (I was thinking because in this way I didn't use fit_transform) how can I fix this error with my code?
