Neuraxle is a Machine Learning (ML) library for building neat pipelines, providing the right abstractions to both ease research, development, and deployment of your ML applications.

Project description

Code Machine Learning Pipelines - The Right Way. Neuraxle Logo

Neuraxle is a Machine Learning (ML) library for building machine learning pipelines.

  • Component-Based: Build encapsulated steps, then compose them to build complex pipelines.
  • Evolving State: Each pipeline step can fit, and evolve through the learning process
  • Hyperparameter Tuning: Optimize your pipelines using AutoML, where each pipeline step has their own hyperparameter space.
  • Compatible: Use your favorite machine learning libraries inside and outside Neuraxle pipelines.
  • Production Ready: Pipeline steps can manage how they are saved by themselves, and the lifecycle of the objects allow for train, and test modes.
  • Streaming Pipeline: Transform data in many pipeline steps at the same time in parallel using multiprocessing Queues.


Simply do:

pip install neuraxle


We have several examples on the website.

For example, you can build a time series processing pipeline as such:

p = Pipeline([
            'hidden_dim': 12,
            'layers_stacked_count': 2,
            'lambda_loss_amount': 0.0003,
            'learning_rate': 0.001
            'window_size_future': sequence_length,
            'output_dim': output_dim,
            'input_dim': input_dim
            'hidden_dim': RandInt(6, 750),
            'layers_stacked_count': RandInt(1, 4),
            'lambda_loss_amount': Uniform(0.0003, 0.001),
            'learning_rate': Uniform(0.001, 0.01),
            'window_size_future': FixedHyperparameter(sequence_length),
            'output_dim': FixedHyperparameter(output_dim),
            'input_dim': FixedHyperparameter(input_dim)

# Load data
X_train, y_train, X_test, y_test = generate_classification_data()

# The pipeline will learn on the data and acquire state.
p =, y_train)

# Once it learned, the pipeline can process new and
# unseen data for making predictions.
y_test_predicted = p.predict(X_test)

You can also tune your hyperparameters using AutoML algorithms such as the TPE:

auto_ml = AutoML(
    scoring_callback=ScoringCallback(accuracy_score, higher_score_is_better=True),
        MetricCallback(f1_score, higher_score_is_better=True),
        MetricCallback(precision, higher_score_is_better=True),
        MetricCallback(recall, higher_score_is_better=True)

# Load data, and launch AutoML loop !
X_train, y_train, X_test, y_test = generate_classification_data()
auto_ml =, y_train)

# Get the model from the best trial, and make predictions using predict.
best_pipeline = auto_ml.get_best_model()
y_pred = best_pipeline.predict(X_test)

Why Neuraxle ?

Most research projects don’t ever get to production. However, you want your project to be production-ready and already adaptable (clean) by the time you finish it. You also want things to be simple so that you can get started quickly. Read more about the why of Neuraxle here.


For technical questions, please post them on StackOverflow using the neuraxle tag. The StackOverflow question will automatically be posted in Neuraxio’s slack workspace in the #Neuraxle channel.

For suggestions, feature requests, and error reports, please open an issue.

For contributors, we recommend using the PyCharm code editor and to let it manage the virtual environment, with the default code auto-formatter, and using pytest as a test runner. To contribute, first fork the project, then do your changes, and then open a pull request in the main repository. Please make your pull request(s) editable, such as for us to add you to the list of contributors if you didn’t add the entry, for example. Ensure that all tests run before opening a pull request. You’ll also agree that your contributions will be licensed under the Apache 2.0 License, which is required for everyone to be able to use your open-source contributions.

Finally, you can as well join our Slack workspace and our Gitter to collaborate with us. We <3 collaborators. You can also subscribe to our mailing list where we will post some updates and news.
