Fuzzy String Matching in Python



Fuzzy string matching like a boss. It uses Levenshtein Distance to calculate the differences between sequences in a simple-to-use package.


For testing

  • pycodestyle
  • hypothesis
  • pytest


Using PIP via PyPI

pip install fuzzywuzzy

or the following to install python-Levenshtein too

pip install fuzzywuzzy[speedup]

Using PIP via Github

pip install git+git://github.com/seatgeek/[email protected]#egg=fuzzywuzzy

Adding to your requirements.txt file (run pip install -r requirements.txt afterwards)

git+ssh://[email protected]/seatgeek/[email protected]#egg=fuzzywuzzy

Manually via GIT

git clone git://github.com/seatgeek/fuzzywuzzy.git fuzzywuzzy
cd fuzzywuzzy
python setup.py install


>>> from fuzzywuzzy import fuzz
>>> from fuzzywuzzy import process

Simple Ratio

>>> fuzz.ratio("this is a test", "this is a test!")

Partial Ratio

>>> fuzz.partial_ratio("this is a test", "this is a test!")

Token Sort Ratio

>>> fuzz.ratio("fuzzy wuzzy was a bear", "wuzzy fuzzy was a bear")
>>> fuzz.token_sort_ratio("fuzzy wuzzy was a bear", "wuzzy fuzzy was a bear")

Token Set Ratio

>>> fuzz.token_sort_ratio("fuzzy was a bear", "fuzzy fuzzy was a bear")
>>> fuzz.token_set_ratio("fuzzy was a bear", "fuzzy fuzzy was a bear")


>>> choices = ["Atlanta Falcons", "New York Jets", "New York Giants", "Dallas Cowboys"]
>>> process.extract("new york jets", choices, limit=2)
    [('New York Jets', 100), ('New York Giants', 78)]
>>> process.extractOne("cowboys", choices)
    ("Dallas Cowboys", 90)

You can also pass additional parameters to extractOne method to make it use a specific scorer. A typical use case is to match file paths:

>>> process.extractOne("System of a down - Hypnotize - Heroin", songs)
    ('/music/library/good/System of a Down/2005 - Hypnotize/01 - Attack.mp3', 86)
>>> process.extractOne("System of a down - Hypnotize - Heroin", songs, scorer=fuzz.token_sort_ratio)
    ("/music/library/good/System of a Down/2005 - Hypnotize/10 - She's Like Heroin.mp3", 61)

Known Ports

FuzzyWuzzy is being ported to other languages too! Here are a few ports we know about:

  • Incompatible License

    Incompatible License

    I see you've got issue #113 closed, however a simple reading of the GPL linked in the StringMatcher file doesn't just imply, but in fact definitively states, that your project must be licensed as GPL.

    1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program.

    You have not copied the entire source verbatim, you've copied a select portion and incorporated it into a further derived work.

    2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.

    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.

    Emphasis added. When you decided to copy in a portion of the code from python-levenshtein you incidentally selected the GPL license for your project, and it's been apparently licensed as MIT / X11, but effectively and legally licensed as GPL, ever since.

    I say this as someone who has a company project that's now been copy-lefted by your code, albeit accidentally and inadvertently.

    List supported python versions, bump minor

    Now that #33 has been merged in, fuzzywuzzy looks good to go for python 3 compatibility. Might as well advertise this in the setup.py / on pypi. Version bumped so a new version can be pushed to pypi.

  • Remove query processing and default processor

    Remove query processing and default processor

    Added test case to check that using a processor of the form lambda x: x['key'] doesn't fail.

    Set default_processor to None and do not run processor on query.

    Remove test case that checked if string reduced to 0 by processor, as string will no longer be processed.

    Adjusted test cases in test_fuzzywuzzy_hypothesis to not use a processor, but not fail if scorer reduces query to empty string. If the user supplies a processor that modifies the choice so that it is no longer an exact match for the query, not finding an exact match would be the expected behavior.

    Saw some relevant discussion around issues #77 and #141 etc. If processor doesn't run on the query, which I feel it CAN NOT, then processor must also default to None to avoid unexpected behaviors.

    (also have a separate branch that only adds the new test case fwiw)

  • Fuzzywuzzy 4x slower *with* python-Levenshtein installed

    Fuzzywuzzy 4x slower *with* python-Levenshtein installed

    According to the intro page: "python-Levenshtein (optional, provides a 4-10x speedup in String Matching)"

    I am fuzzy matching paragraphs with their best match from a significant list of paragraphs. When I use fuzzywuzzy without python-Levenshtein on Ubuntu, I receive the error that I should install it for a speed-up, and it took about 45 mins on a test set of paragraphs:

    real 46m56.813s user 125m45.952s sys 0m0.432s

    When I then installed python-Levenshtein, the error went away as expected, but running the same example set of paragraphs took over 200 minutes:

    real 204m51.384s user 522m49.436s sys 0m21.376s

    The results are identical except for one paragraph, which does match better with the slower, python-Levenshtein version. While I haven't timed an example, doing the same on the mac also seems significantly slower with python-Levenshtein installed.

    The error message when python-Levenshtein is not installed says that the reason to install the package is for speed, so to me something isn't right: either it shouldn't be slower, or the error message should change to say that it should be installed for increased accuracy (if that is the case).

    Support for other langauges

    Hi, First of all, thanks for maintaining this. I just noticed that both token_sort_ratio and token_set_ratio don't support Arabic characters. I don't know about other non-English ones but at lease they don't support Arabic.. It's returning 0 as a result of comparing anything with Arabic string. Even if they were 2 Arabic strings..

    >>> print fuzz.token_sort_ratio("مرحبا جميعا", "مرحبا جميعا وشكرا لكم")
    >>> print fuzz.partial_ratio("مرحبا جميعا", "مرحبا جميعا وشكرا لكم")

    So I'm just wondering if this's a bug or it simply just doesn't support non-English characters? Thanks

    How to decrease False positive matches? (process.extract / WRatio)

    I am using process.extract method, And I know it uses WRatio under the hood for calculating score. Following is the case in which I am getting very high score of 90 despite the string hardly equal. Is there any way to fix this in WRatio?

    name_list=["american Futures and Options Exchange"]

    Output--> ('american Futures and Options Exchange', 90.0, 0)

    PS: I know other alternatives likes fuzz.ratio, partial_ratio, token_sort_ratio. But WRatio works pretty well for my usecase. So any workaround for the same would be appreciated... Thanks!

  • Removed a manual file handler pitfall

    Removed a manual file handler pitfall

    The problem There was a case where the code was using a manual file handler pitfall, where a file stream was being opened and closed manually. But since Python supports automatic stream closing using the block 'with', its better to use it instead of the manual close in order to remove a bug vector.

    Solution Refactored the code to remove the manual file handler

  • token_set_ratio Degenerate Case

    token_set_ratio Degenerate Case

    Referring to the description of token_set_ratio in the original blog post: if the SORTED_INTERSECTION is a strict subset of STRING2, the result ratio will be 100. E.g.,

    fuzz.token_set_ratio("Deep Learning", "Python Machine Learning: Machine Learning and Deep Learning with Python, scikit-learn, and TensorFlow 2")

    yields 100. This is patently incorrect, and does not uphold the purported intuition ("because the SORTED_INTERSECTION component is always exactly the same, the scores increase when (a) that makes up a larger percentage of the full string, and (b) the string remainders are more similar").

    Looking at fuzz._token_set, we see that it returns

            ratio_func(sorted_sect, combined_1to2),
            ratio_func(sorted_sect, combined_2to1),
            ratio_func(combined_1to2, combined_2to1)

    It appears the assumption is that the string remainder will never be empty. Perhaps something like this is more appropriate:

            0 if sorted_sect == combined_1to2 else ratio_func(sorted_sect, combined_1to2),
            0 if sorted_sect == combined_2to1 else ratio_func(sorted_sect, combined_2to1),
            ratio_func(combined_1to2, combined_2to1)

      So now we can (and, indeed, I've added tests for these uses) call extract() on things like:

      • a generator of strings ("any iterable")
      • a UserDict
      • custom user-made classes that "look like" dicts (or, really, anything with a .items() method that behaves like a dict)
      • plain old lists and dicts

      The behavior is exactly the same for previous use cases of lists-and-dicts.

      This change goes along nicely with PR #68, since those docs suggest dict-like behavior is valid, and this change makes that true.

    • Merge conflict. [Adam Cohen]

    • Improve docs for fuzzywuzzy.process. [Nathan Typanski]

      The documentation for this module was dated and sometimes inaccurate. This overhauls the docs to accurately describe the current module, including detailing optional arguments that were not previously explained - e.g., limit argument to extract().

      This change follows the Google Python Style Guide, which may be found at:
