A CLI and library for interacting with the Weights and Biases API.

Project description



Weights and Biases PyPI Conda (channel only) CircleCI Codecov

Use W&B to build better models faster. Track and visualize all the pieces of your machine learning pipeline, from datasets to production models.

  • Quickly identify model regressions. Use W&B to visualize results in real time, all in a central dashboard.
  • Focus on the interesting ML. Spend less time manually tracking results in spreadsheets and text files.
  • Capture dataset versions with W&B Artifacts to identify how changing data affects your resulting models.
  • Reproduce any model, with saved code, hyperparameters, launch commands, input data, and resulting model weights.

Quickstart

pip install wandb

In your training script:

import wandb

# Your custom arguments defined here
args = ...

wandb.init(config=args, project="my-project")
wandb.config["more"] = "custom"


def training_loop():
    while True:
        # Do some machine learning
        epoch, loss, val_loss = ...
        # Framework agnostic / custom metrics
        wandb.log({"epoch": epoch, "loss": loss, "val_loss": val_loss})

If you're already using Tensorboard or TensorboardX, you can integrate with one line:

wandb.init(sync_tensorboard=True)

Running your script

Run wandb login from your terminal to signup or authenticate your machine (we store your api key in ~/.netrc). You can also set the WANDB_API_KEY environment variable with a key from your settings.

Run your script with python my_script.py and all metadata will be synced to the cloud. You will see a url in your terminal logs when your script starts and finishes. Data is staged locally in a directory named wandb relative to your script. If you want to test your script without syncing to the cloud you can set the environment variable WANDB_MODE=dryrun.

If you are using docker to run your code, we provide a wrapper command wandb docker that mounts your current directory, sets environment variables, and ensures the wandb library is installed. Training your models in docker gives you the ability to restore the exact code and environment with the wandb restore command.

Detailed Usage

Framework specific and detailed usage can be found in our documentation.

Testing

To run basic test use make test. More detailed information can be found at CONTRIBUTING.md.

We use circleci for CI.
