FastText for Windows

Unofficial FastText binary builds for Windows

AppVeyor Github All Releases GitHub release


FastText is a library for efficient learning of word representations and sentence classification. It implements the algorithms described in Bojanowski et al (2016) and Joulin et al (2016). I used it in my previous research Xia (2016) to aid language identification in codeswitched sentences.

FastText’s authors did not support building and running on Windows. There were attempts to run with Bash for Windows and MinGW. Support for building on Windows were later added by supporting building with cmake. This unofficial build is compiled with Visual C++ 2017 to run natively on Windows. The compilation is done automatically with continous integration, tracking latest upstream master source code.
