A high-level library on top of Pytorch.

Python - Version PyPI - Version PyPI - Wheel Github - Tag License

A high level framework for general purpose neural networks in Pytorch.

Personally, going from Theano to Pytorch is pretty much like time traveling from 90s to the modern day. However, despite a lot of bells and whistles, I still feel there are some missing elements from Pytorch which are confirmed to be never added to the library. Therefore, this library is written to add more features to the current magical Pytorch. All the modules here directly subclass the corresponding modules from Pytorch, so everything should still be familiar. For example, the following snippet in Pytorch

from torch import nn
model = nn.Sequential(
    nn.Conv2d(1, 20, 5, padding=2),
    nn.Conv2d(20, 64, 5, padding=2),

can be rewritten in Neuralnet-pytorch as

import neuralnet_pytorch as nnt
model = nnt.Sequential(
    nnt.Conv2d(1, 20, 5, padding='half', activation='relu'),
    nnt.Conv2d(20, 64, 5, padding='half', activation='relu')

which is the same as the native Pytorch, or

import neuralnet_pytorch as nnt
model = nnt.Sequential(input_shape=1)
model.add_module('conv1', nnt.Conv2d(model.output_shape, 20, 5, padding='half', activation='relu'))
model.add_module('conv2', nnt.Conv2d(model.output_shape, 64, 5, padding='half', activation='relu'))

which frees you from a lot of memorizations and manual calculations when adding one layer on top of another. Theano folks will also find some reminiscence as many functions are highly inspired by Theano.


Pytorch >= 1.0.0




Gin-config (optional)

The manual reference is still under development and is available at


  • Adding introduction and installation
  • Writing documentations
  • Adding examples


This package is a product from my little free time during my PhD, so most but not all the written modules are properly checked. No replacements or refunds for buggy performance. All PRs are welcome.


The CUDA Chamfer distance is taken from the AtlasNet repo.

The AdaBound optimizer is taken from its official repo.

The adapted Gin for Pytorch code is taken from Gin-config.

The monitor scheme is inspired from WGAN.
