Jina is the cloud-native neural search solution powered by the state-of-the-art AI and deep learning
Jina is an open-source deep-learning powered search framework, empowering developers to create cross-modal or multi-modal search systems for text, images, video, and audio. Jina is a cloud-native project, and provides long-term support from a full-time, venture-backed team.
⏱️ Time Saver - Bootstrap an AI-powered system in just a few minutes with cookiecutter.
🧠 First-Class AI models - Jina is a new design pattern for neural search systems with first-class support for state-of-the-art AI models like Faiss, Annoy, Onnx, and more.
🌌 Universal Search - Large-scale indexing and querying data of any kind on multiple platforms. Video, image, long/short text, music, source code, and more.
🚀 Production Ready - Cloud-native features out-of-the-box, like containerization, microservice, distributing, scaling, sharding, async IO, REST, gRPC.
🧩 Plug & Play - With Jina Hub, you can extend Jina with simple Python scripts or Docker images optimized for your search domain.

On Linux/MacOS with Python >= 3.7:
pip install jina
To install Jina with extra dependencies, or install on Raspberry Pi please refer to the documentation.
pip install cookiecutter && cookiecutter gh:jina-ai/cookiecutter-jina
With Cookiecutter you can easily create a Jina project from templates with one terminal command. This creates a Python entrypoint, YAML configs and a Dockerfile. You can start from there.
In a Docker Container
We provide a universal Docker image that supports multiple architectures (including x64, x86, arm-64/v7/v6). Simply run:
docker run jinaai/jina --help
Jina "Hello, World!" 👋🌍
As a starter, you can try out our "Hello, World" - a simple demo of image neural search for Fashion-MNIST. No extra dependencies needed, just run:
...or even easier for Docker users, no install required:
docker run -v "$(pwd)/j:/j" jinaai/jina hello-world --workdir /j && open j/hello-world.html # replace "open" with "xdg-open" on Linux
Click here to see console output
The Docker image downloads the Fashion-MNIST training and test dataset and tells Jina to index 60,000 images from the training set. Then it randomly samples images from the test set as queries and asks Jina to retrieve relevant results. The whole process takes about 1 minute, and eventually opens a webpage and shows results like this:
The implementation behind it is simple:
|Python API||or use YAML spec||or use Dashboard|
from jina.flow import Flow f = (Flow() .add(uses='encoder.yml', parallel=2) .add(uses='indexer.yml', shards=2, separated_workspace=True)) with f: f.index(fashion_mnist, batch_size=1024)
!Flow pods: encode: uses: encoder.yml parallel: 2 index: uses: indexer.yml shards: 2 separated_workspace: true
Explore sharding, containerization, concatenating embeddings, and more
Adding Parallelism and Sharding
from jina.flow import Flow f = (Flow().add(uses='encoder.yml', parallel=2) .add(uses='indexer.yml', shards=2, separated_workspace=True))
from jina.flow import Flow f = Flow().add(uses='encoder.yml', host='192.168.0.99')
from jina.flow import Flow f = (Flow().add(uses='jinahub/cnn-encode:0.1') .add(uses='jinahub/faiss-index:0.2', host='192.168.0.99'))
from jina.flow import Flow f = (Flow().add(name='eb1', uses='BiTImageEncoder') .add(name='eb2', uses='KerasImageEncoder', needs='gateway') .needs(['eb1', 'eb2'], uses='_concat'))
from jina.flow import Flow f = Flow(port_expose=45678, rest_api=True) with f: f.block()

As part of our open governance model, we host Jina's Engineering All Hands in public. This Zoom meeting recurs monthly on the second Tuesday of each month, at 14:00-15:30 (CET). Everyone can join in via the following calendar invite.
The meeting will also be live-streamed and later published to our YouTube channel.
Jina is an open-source project. We are hiring full-stack developers, evangelists, and PMs to build the next neural search ecosystem in open source.
