python NGT

Project description

python NGT



Python binding with pybind11 (ngtpy) is installed as follows.

pip3 install ngt

You can install the python bindings from source code. You MUST install the NGT library according to the README before installing the python bindings as follows.

pip3 install pybind11
pip3 install numpy
cd NGT_ROOT/python
python3 sdist
pip3 install dist/ngt-x.x.x.tar.gz

Please note that the search speed of the ngtpy packages from PyPI is slower than that of the ngtpy that is built on your computer so that the package can be run on older CPUs.


ngtpy (pybind11) reference

Simple samples

ngtpy (pybind11)

ngtpy(pybind11) can reduce the processing times than ngt(ctypes). It is more effective especially for the short search time.

  import ngtpy
  import random

  dim = 10
  nb = 100
  vectors = [[random.random() for _ in range(dim)] for _ in range(nb)]
  query = vectors[0]
  ngtpy.create(b"tmp", dim)
  index = ngtpy.Index(b"tmp")

  results =, 3)
  for i, (id, distance) in enumerate(results) :
      print(str(i) + ": " + str(id) + ", " + str(distance))
      object = index.get_object(id)
