AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'textify'


I’m trying to load a bunch of text to fine-tune a language model. I’ve tried a few different ways, but so far to no success.

I have a .txt file with a lot of text.

I’ve tried two ways:

and also loading it as a pandas dataframe with only one column and then

but both of them throw the same error:

~/anaconda3/envs/fastai/lib/python3.6/site-packages/fastai/text/ in get(self, i)
    325     def get(self, i):
    326         o = super().get(i)
--> 327         return Text(o, self.vocab.textify(o))
    329     def label_for_lm(self, **kwargs):

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'textify'

Even if I create a minimal text file with only 10 lines of random text, I get the same error.

I tried with fastai 1.0.49 and 1.0.50.

Thank you.


Hi there, I know it’s been a while, but I am facing this same problem. Did you ever figure it out what caused this and how to solve it? Thanks.

Fixed it this morning in master.
