FileTypeClassifier classifies files based on their extension and sends them to a file converter that can handle them. For example, if you have a collection of files of different types, such as PDFs, text files, markdown, and HTML files, you can use
FileTypeClassifier to route them to converters that can further process them into documents.
FileTypeClassifier takes a path as input and outputs the same path on the output edge that corresponds to the file's extension.
You can use
FileTypeClassifier as the first node in your indexing pipeline. First, define it in the components section of your pipeline definition file:
components: - name: FileClassifier type: FileTypeClassifier params: supported_types: ["txt", "pdf"]
FileTypeClassifier to your indexing pipeline:
pipelines: - name: indexing nodes: - name: FileClassifier inputs: [File] #then you specify the input for the file converters: - name: PDFToTextConverter inputs: [FileClassifier.output_2] #this is output_2 because "PDF" is specified as the second extension in "supported_types" - name: TextConverter inputs: [FileClassifier.output_1] #TextConverter takes output_1 because "txt" is specified # as the first extension in "supported_types"
You can specify the following arguments for
|A list of strings||File extensions, such as ||Specifies the file types that this node can distinguish. It's limited to a maximum of 10 file extensions. Lists containing more than 10 items and lists with duplicate elements are not allowed.|
