A Genetic Algorithm Framework in pyThon

Build Status Codecov Code Health platform versions Documentation Status


GAFT is a general Python Framework for genetic algorithm computation. It provides built-in genetic operators for target optimization and plugin interfaces for users to define your own genetic operators and on-the-fly analysis for algorithm testing.

GAFT is now accelerated using MPI parallelization interfaces. You can run it on your cluster in parallel with MPI environment.

Python Support

GAFT requires Python version 3.x (Python 2.x is not supported).


  1. Via pip:

    pip install gaft
  2. From source:

    python install

If you want GAFT to run in MPI env, please install mpi4py explicitly:
