RASA NLU and Anaconda software has been installed in my system

Hi Guys

RASA NLU software has been installed in my system. I am new to it. Please help me where and how to start.

Thanks Kamesh

Welcome @kamesh! Have you checked out our docs’ quickstart and tutorial?

Hi Erohmensing

Below is the errror message when i try to run the command from Anaconda terminal


Thanks Kamesh

Hm are you in an Anaconda environment? If so, it’s possible that you haven’t downloaded rasa in that environment. You can use your regular terminal, don’t have to use the anaconda one

Regular terminal means Can you please let me know where it will be RASA NLU

I can see below folders are present RASA NLU

Our regular terminal means where it will be present. Brand new to it please help me out

Whe i try to run from command prompt below is the error message


Ah i see. You’re using the wrong version. If you want to use rasa init, you should have installed rasa, not rasa_nlu.

rasa nlu is for what and rasa is for what . Can you please explain me

rasa_nlu and rasa_core are old packages which were merged to create rasa. If you are starting fresh, you should start with rasa. rasa x is built on top of rasa and provides a user interface. I would recommend installing rasa x, which automatically installs rasa. Follow the installation guide here: Installation and Setup

If you want to stick to the current setup of only using rasa_nlu, then try below command to train your model

python -m rasa train  -c <path-to-your-config-file>  --data <path-to-your-data-file>

For example,

python -m rasa train  -c data/nlu_config.yml  --data data/nlu_data.md

Hi Sam

Only below thing is present in RASA NLU. I am not sure where to this script (python -m rasa train -c --data ) I should run it in the cmd prompt ? (Where to start from here)

Thanks Kamesh

Oh… you do not have .yml and .md files? Check in the data folder? In that case, the best thing to do is what @erohmensing has suggested. Follow the steps mentioned at https://rasa.com/docs/rasa/user-guide/installation/ Install rasa (which will get you both rasa_nlu and rasa_core)

Meanwhile, can you give me the Github link from which you cloned the repository? Is it the latest commit?

My assumption is that he got rasa_nlu from pypi (we always encourage downloading from pypi, not github). And @samrudh you’re half right – installing rasa gets you both core and nlu functionality, under rasa/core and rasa/nlu inside rasa, but not the rasa_core and rasa_nlu packages themselves. These still exist, but are not part of the latest, rasa 1.0 and later.
