An open platform for science on Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Please visit psiturk.org for more information.
psiTurk v3 has been released! See the migration guide here.
psiTurk v3 does not support the psiturk ad server. If you still need the psiTurk ad server, use psiTurk v2.3.12, and remove all HTML comments from your
ad.htmlfile. Versions less than v2.3.12 will not be able to post HITs due to a change implemented by the psiturk ad server's hosting provider. You can upgrade to psiturk v2.3.12 by running
pip install --upgrade psiturk=2.3.12.
Check out a clone of this repo, and install it into your local environment for testing (consider installing into a virtualenv):
git clone [email protected]:NYUCCL/psiTurk.git pip install -e psiTurk
A test suite can be run using
pytestfrom within the base directory of psiturk.
